Re: bios m45 password

You cannot bypass it the only way is to remove the battery inside the laptop for an hour or so, if you do this, it resets the bios. There is no other way unless of course you remember the password.

If you forgot windows password,you can use such windows password recovery tool...

There are two passwords in BIOS. One is start up password, the other isBIOS setting password. If you have forgotten the start up password thatmeans you cannot open computer at all. Then the first method is theonly thing you can do. Other methods can use to clear setting password.
==①:Motherboard Battery Discharge==
The common way toreset start up password is discharge Motherboard Battery. Most of thecurrent motherboard BIOS is using the button batteries to provideelectric power.That means if there is no electricity, the informationit contains will be lost. When it’s on power again, BIOS will set backto its original state, of course, there will be no BIOS passwords. Butyou will lose your setting at the same time.
What we need to dois to power off computer, open the computer box, and then unplug thepower plug of the computer to make sure that it is no electricity atall. Then locate the white silver button battery on the motherboard.Remove the battery carefully. Perhaps 30 seconds later, put back thebattery.
After put back the computer box then power on, thesystem will prompt “CMOS Checksum Error-Defaults Loaded”. That meansCMOS errors detected during inspections, had been included in thesystem default, BIOS password cracking success!
On somemotherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making itdifficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative.Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clearthe BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you willknow where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on themotherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to bethe case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper.This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannotlocate this jumper, you might short both of the points where thebattery connects to the motherboard.
==② : Backdoor BIOS Password==
Eachmotherboard manufacturer has set a backdoor password in order tofacilitate the provision of technical support. The backdoor password isa BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOSpassword to. These passwords are typically used for testing andmaintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwordsfrom time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords
Onereported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reportedAward backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595,598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARDSW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT,CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332,J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz,TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords

VOBIS&IBM merlin
Dell Dell
Biostar Biostar
Compaq Compaq
Epox central
Freetech PosterieI
Will iwill
Jetway spooml
Packard Bell bell9
Siemens SKY_FOX
Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password,this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the realbackdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored atF000:EC60.
==③: Software Crack==
There are a lotsoftwares to test systems or start up password, but they need to run onWindows. So it is only used to reset BIOS setting password.
!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.
CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:
•AMI WinBIOS 2.5
•Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
•Compaq (1992)
•Compaq (New version)
•IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
•Packard Bell
•Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
•Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
•Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
•Zenith AMI
Ifall else fails, you might be going to lose some money for technician.But they will use these same methods, try hard by yourself.

Forgot password fot toshiba satellite m45-s169

Thats a Power On Password...I believe the only way that you can get around/reset/disable by taking out the battery out of the Cmos. I will be looking for more ways other then that but thats one that i know works...
If you would like to attempt it...i dont recommend it for the no computer people...look up fourms and see if others have had the same problem or if people have taken the computer apart and replaced the cmos battery

My computer has a password in the BIOS Setting. i forgot it

Do you know what the password is? If so, enter the bios and change it. When asked for a new password, just hit enter. If it asks a second time to confirm the password, just hit enter again.

Good luck

Toshiba Satellite M45-S351 BIOS password needs help!

BIOS passwords on Toshiba notebooks have to be reset by an authorized service technician who has the CD available to run the utility.  Their notebooks don't contain a battery reset to erase the password.  It was done as a safety feature to prevent theft from happening and it is a very good one.
If you take it into Best Buy or a computer dealer to get it done, you might have to prove that you are the new owner of the computer before it can happen.

Which Windows operating system you are using. If its XP you stuffed you will need to reinstall Windows. But try this sometimes the Administrator has no password and you may be lucky. Startup the machine holding the f8 key to safe mode if the the Administrator is available remove the password from you login in the Users Mode. If it is locked than the alternate is to reinstall there is no other solution.

Bios/startup password

yes, it will still be charged, to reset the bios password you need to locate the cmos battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so, but where exactly the battery is situated, i'm not sure.
