    the only thing you can do now is ring toshiba up and ask them for the default password, they may ask for proof of purchase

Bios password

hi, BIOS or CMOS password are usually reset by a jumper or shorting pins. if your are the owner of the laptop you can go the brand site and ask for a universal default password. this is the safest way. however, if you don't want these hassles you can follow below procedure but with risks. it is for you to follow or not.
1. when you prompt the with password. type anything.
2. 3 wrong password will show "system disabled" with codes.
3. Turn off your computer, remove the adapter and battery on your laptop for a couple of seconds.

Reboot your system and see if password is disabled.
im not responsible for any damage for system. it's your own risk.

How to reset bios password

The FSC 1320D's are truely remarkable... We haev had a default BIOS password for our laptops for a while now, but it has recently started to have been guessed or found out. So of course, they needed to be changed. And suprisingly enough, the FSC 1320D will not allow you to reset the BIOS password through ANY user method so far, and we really have tried everything.
Removing the BIOS battery - This does nothing, at the best of times the system will display an error saying it has been removed but other than that the BIOS password remains.
Updating the BIOS - Most people would suspect that if you update the BIOS it compeltely refreshes the set system settings, including the BIOS password. This again, is not the case with this model, as every attempt at updating the BIOS so far has been deemed useless.
BIOS Corruption - This again, does not work. It leaves the system in a dead state, usually the BIOS resets. This has occured once, as during boot we noticed the options to scan memory had changed and it took longer, but the BIOS password remained.
Backdoor Passwords - Again, do not work. We have tried the entire list submitted by Ekse.
Reset VIA Software - There are some hacking programs out there which reset the BIOS through the Operating System. And i think we can all guess what im about to say... They don't work. It may just be for this model, as i've not tried them on others, but the BIOS password for the FSC 1320D does not get reset using this applications.

So, the verdict?
Apparently you can submit your laptop back to Fujitsu Siemens for an 'Out of warranty repair', and they will reset it for you. Assumingly by changing the BIOS chip completely. The only downside to this is that it can cost anything from £50 - £150 depending on service charges and delivery costs. My opinion, wasting time on a laptop that is past its sell-by date like the FSC 1320D is really not something you want to be doing. Buy a new laptop and sell the 1320D for spare parts.

Is asking for password when coms on forgot it

There is usually a jumper on the motherboard that you can remove to clear BIOS settings including password if the password is a request of the BIOS. If it is a Windows or other operating system that is asking for password you are probably going to have to reload operating system. Look on motherboard for small jumper with the word BIOS imprinted next to it. Make sure power is off, remove jumper and restart pc. When BIOS comes up do not set password protection. Shut pc down, replace jumper and your bios settings should be fine. Good luck

(Emachines: intel pentium 4) Everytime i turn on my computer it requests for a system password, and im unable to use my restore cd.

That's known as a BIOS password. If you clear the BIOS, you can possibly avoid asking who set the password, but then you have to be able to set up the BIOS acceptably, about which you can google around for details. Asking around (to others who use the system, in case it's not just you) might let you know something new. Perhaps someone set it from within a utility rather than directly via the BIOS, and perhaps it's a soft error and entering '0' or '00000000' or 'password' or some such default password will avail.

Can not get into phoenixbios setup utility


Is it like when you turn on your computer it asks you for a BIOS password.

You need to open the notebook from the back and locate the small battery which looks like the shape of coin,
After locating it take that battery out and turn on your computer,
Once your computer is fully loaded then turn if Off,
Then put the battery back and turn on your computer
Try to go into BIOS.
I am sure you will be able to go into BIOS.
