get to the mainboard
there is a jumper near the cmos battery usually shows the
word (jbat) near it , try to change its position for some
seconds while power is off , this way will clear cmos and set the
mainboard bios to default settings.
start the system hit delete or F2 to enter setup then exit saving changes.

I found where the cmos battery is located. By the Toshiba tech support website , it's next to the PCMCIA Slot, just behind it. To get to it, Take off LCD, keyboard, top palmrest, hard drive, battery, memory, top power cover,switch board, modem, network. and some others. Too many to describe here. Items to remove not in order.
I Have the service manual downloaded already.

You would need to take the Cmos battery apart for 10 minutes. There another way whit password cracker but it is more hard to do it. Try searching for Hiren Boot CD's. Thanks Let us know. Obed

have yout tried this application..
I've heard before about the toshiba paralell loopback (it's also mentioned on the website above) as a way to unlock your bios you may want to try that aswell.
post back if it worked.. would be good to know if it did.
I remember also reading about the possibility of flashing your bios (you're going to need a floppy drive unit) to at least unlock your hard drive and get your data out, you may still not be able to hack into the bios again.

The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps
