What is the question? Can you bypass the password? Normally No. You must take the laptop to a Toshiba Service Center to have the password removed or overridden. You may have to pay for the service if the laptop is out of warranty.

SOURCE: toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare

You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

Try This: Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.
Older Toshiba laptopsmag-glass_10x10.gif can be convinced to boot without their power-on BIOS password by attaching a dongle to the parallel port which crosses a number of the pins. The pin out is:
Pins 1-5-10 2-11 3-17 4-12 6-16 7-13 8-14 9-15 Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

My bios password want work and i cant get into my laptopm45


Write out the password several times on paper, sometimes you remember something that has being forgotten. Next! type the word password, I have seen the odd laptop where this will work. If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios at a fee, check out ebay and type bios password, there are seller claims they can fix the problem, but be carefull.

Password bios


If you have "forgotten" the password, find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the owner (and not a thief in possession of a stolen laptop) and make a telephone-call to TOSHIBA, and they can help the registered owner with the password.

BIOS passwords in modern portables require a master password to bypass/reset if the original password is lost forgotten. You will need to contact Toshiba Tech Support and if the system is not under current warranty that will probably require payment to resolve.

I have forgotten bios password of my pc (Toshiba


The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration. But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE
You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port. Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg this is a picture of the finished dongle


Wire the pins as follows :- 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15
Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password.

Reset BIOS password at Toshiba 4030 CDS


If the password is stored in the BIOS and not on an EEPROM chip then you can remove the BIOS battery and wait for 1/2+ hour before inserting the battery back in. If you don't want to wait then short out the battery contacts on the motherboard. The BIOS settings will now be set to the factory default.
Alternately some laptops allow you to select an alternate boot up device by pressing the F12 key as you power up.
