Como remover a palavra passe no toshiba satellite

If it is a password on boot (before the OS loads) there is nothing you can do about it, except taking the laptop to a Toshiba authorized Service Center to have the password reset or removed. You may have to pay for the service if laptop is out of warranty.
For a user password you might try reinstalling the OS (Recovery). There may be some programs on the Internet that may retrieve a password. Launch a search with Google or other Internet search engine.

Pass woard note opening

Step 1:
if you mean unable to open laptop due to password

The password, otherwise known as the BIOS password that has been made into part of the Toshiba Satellite Laptop design, was built in for security reasons. However, Toshiba has also made life a little more difficult for those who have accidentally set the password, have forgotten it and don't know how to reset it. To prevent these troubles, there are routes to resetting or deleting the password completely from Toshiba laptops, including the Toshiba Satellite.

Making the BIOS Password Removal Tool b> There is a connector plug that can help you with removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba Satellite laptop, including model numbers 1415, 1800 and Pro 6100. In fact, they work on most Pentium III Toshiba and Pentium IV Toshiba laptops. To make this tool, take the DB25 connector off of your printer. Remove the screws to take apart the plug. When you take it apart, you will see a bunch of wires there which should have enough length to strip and solder them. The pins on the connector are marked between 1 and 25, so connect the wires together from the following numbered pins: 1+5+10, 2+11, 3+17, 4+12, 6+16, 7+13, 8+14 and 9+15. Some of these may already be connected inside of the plug. Insulate these groups of wires with electrical tape. b> Using the BIOS Password Removal Tool b> Connect this plug to a parallel port in your laptop and turn the power on. This will take you past the password setting stage and right into the operating system. If you are not comfortable with making this tool yourself, you can purchase it online. It will save you some time and effort. Check the list of laptops with which it works to make sure that yours is one of them. Other Methods There are two other methods that you can use to remove the password from the computer. One is the option to buy the guide online, but you don't find out what the instructions are until you have paid for the product. If you are not comfortable with this option, then you can try the following option. When you start the computer you will see the KeyDisk, which is the 'A:' prompt. When you see this prompt, type in 'SBFIXMBR'. This will take you through a number of instructions. Follow these and it will take you past the BIOS area and into your operation system. You can also call Stratum or visit the Toshiba website and download the Toshiba BIOS Update. This update can be used to flash the BIOS, although in some cases, you will have to reinstall your operation system and will not be permitted access to BIOS at all.

Had software problem and now bios password is proventing log on how do you reset or turn off bios cannot get pass bios password to get to operating system

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using Kill CMOS software from Hiren's Boot CD as Toshiba laptops have soldered CMOS battery which would be a hassle to remove.

Toshiba satellite A135-S2276 cannot get pass bios password and none was set

Try removing internal battery this is ussually a small battery on the motherboard which keeps in its memory date and time ,hard drive details ,passwords etc.
Some batteries are easily removeable some have to be desoldered so it losses whats in its memory. The laptop is then switched on to see if the password is gone.. Then battery put back. Some laptops have to be taken to manufacturer to take password off..Good luck

When I switch on my laptop all that comes up is black screen with a blue text box asking for a password. When I enter the password I use for my windows, it does not work. I have a n acer TravelMate C120

You have encountered what is called a "Power on password", this will only go if you enter the Bios based password. Removing the CMOS battery will not work as this is stored in a chip on the laptop.

In passing on this bit of advice, i'm assuming you own the laptop and I take no responsibility for it not working on your laptop. I have done this on one of mine and it worked.Your call..

Remove the Keyboard from the laptop
Remove the Wlan card
Under this you will see two contacts marked C88 (there is an X next to them)
Power on the laptop and touch the two contacts with a flat blade screwdriver (in effect shorting them)
Replace the Wlan card but not the keyboard as yet
Reboot and the power on pass should have gone
If it has replace keyboard if not retry above steps

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.
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 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.

Cant get pass bio screen on satellite m105-s3084 toshiba

The Toshiba BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work. There is a hardware hack solution (a dongle) to remove the password.

Buy a 25 pin male D Sub connector and join the following pins together by soldering wires to these pins. Make sure the wires do not short against each other. The pins are numbered on the connector.


Plug the dongle into the printer port of your laptop and power up the laptop. Press F2 function key to get into the BIOS and then remove the password. Your laptop should boot up without the password and you can remove the dongle.
