SOURCE: BIOS Password reset on Toshiba A135-S2276

Toshiba says this problem is happening with all their laptops and it is their problem from original programming---whether your laptop is in warranty or not, they HAVE to fix it at any Toshiba authorized service center FREE, and it only takes them about ten minutes. Had the same problem with mine and they DO know how to fix it right the first time so you have no further complications. As for Toshiba, WHY ARE YOU STILL SELLING THESE LAPTOPS IF YOU KNOW THEY ARE ALL FAULTY?!?!?!?!?!?!? They should be stopped from selling faulty equipment. Toshiba is a RIPOFF.

SOURCE: how to reset bios password FOR LENOVO 3000 LAPTOP

This is copied directly from the Lenovo website.

Note: Do not forget your hard disk password! Keep it in a safe place. If you forget your hard disk password, there is no way to reset your password or recover data in the hard disk drive. Neither an IBM authorized reseller nor IBM marketing
representative can make the hard disk drive usable.

SOURCE: Toshiba L450-188 Laptop asking for password on power up

The only sure way to reset the bios is taking the laptop apart and removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard, you can try these techniques, but they are technical.
visit the following websites to learn...

Cant see my passport external drive on new windows 8 laptop


Try unplugging from usb and plugging it back in. Also, you may need a SAS driver for your computer to recognize the drive. Some drives have internal encryption and require a driver before the computer recognizes them. Check the Mfg website to see whether this drive requires one.

Hello, I recently had a Toshiba Sattelite L455 that suddenly promped for a BIOS password on startup. There was never a bios password set for this laptop. So I found a workaround using the onboard...


You hit the correct jumpers for this model to remove the motherboard bios lock, which shows you have done your homework well. Toshiba, like Dell set a bios lock and HDD lock on some laptops for security reasons, often when the cmos battery needs changing, it manifests itself.

As to why you got this request for a bios pass is very odd, if you did not change the cmos battery, however, removing the battery as you state would not fix the hard drive problem. The hard drive will remain locked and if, as I suspect, it is a security measure, you will not be able to remove it and externally access files or even format it by slaving it in another computer or docking station.

Your best solution would be to contact a Toshiba service centre and explain the problem and ask them for a bios unlock code. IF this was installed at the factory, they should be able to remove it (you WILL be asked to provide proof of ownership)

I have heard of some laptops being "time locked", which is where the time/ date settings in the bios trigger a request for a bios password for security purposes, but never actually seen this occur. This might explain why the bios pass request appeared randomly as it did. There is the possibility that this was caused by a virus, although, again, I've never heard of this happening.

Dont have bios password and it only just started asking for it?


Unusual that it is asking for this, normally you have to change the cmos battery before this occurs. If you mean what is called the "power on password", this is a security lock and will need Toshiba to unlock it.
Can you clarify if the laptop can get into the bios, or is this locked out by the password request?

Pasword on bootup


This is a bios lock password, designed to prevent theft or data theft if the laptop is stolen. Did you attempt to replace the Bios battery? Usually, this causes the machine to request a Bios pass and this can only be done (unless you want to spend an eternity using a bios cracking software utility) by an IBM service technician who will need to reset the bios password for you.

Even if you managed to crack the bios pass, the hard drive is usually locked in a similar fashion

If however it is an OS pass you can download a utility such as Ophcrack, burn it to Cd and boot from it to unlock the OS password (using another computer to do so of course). I'm giving this latter advice on the assumption that you DO own the laptop.

Black screen with a enter pass word


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..
OR there are other places that will sell you a "Key" for a price.
OR you can provide "Proof of Ownership" to Toshiba, and they will sell you a "Code" to remove the Anti-Tamper, Anti-theft, protection.

Phoenix bios password


The thing is that somebody set bios password. On phoenix bios based on intel platform? like yours normally if you will enter bios password incorrectly 3 times bios will lock the computer and it will generate 12 digit lock code. You will need to contact Toshiba technical support to get bios unlock password. (Normally this is generated by them within couple of hours.)
I would recommend you to check with toshiba support before locking bios (entering password incorrectly 3 times)
