TOSHIBA 3490CT CAN'T REMEMBER ADMIN PASSWORD. TRIED WINDOWS PASSWORD UNLOCKER - WON'T BOOT FROM USB HELP PLS!


Use a different computer and burn a CD of Ophcrack. Depending on which windows version you have, you have to use a different download. You can burn the file to CD using a program like ImgBurn.
Boot to that and it will do the rest for you.

Tosiba Portage A100 notebok Pasword bios


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Hello,

The motherboard has 128 MB memory (soldered on board). However there is still empty slot for further upgrade. You can install another 128 MB PC100 SDRAM memory to get maximum of 256 MB.

Where is a shorty jumper in Portage 4010


Hi smtega. There's not a jumper. Try this. Unplug the power adapter. and (assuming you know how to open the laptop) - just remove the BIOS battery inside (something like a battery for a watch, sometimes it has a sleeve or a little casing. Wait a minute or so, and then try again. If that doenst work just wait longer and then try it. I hope this helps and please dont forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free support today. Thank you :D

This message is seen on the laptop screen BIOS Damaged! Serviceman: Place maintenance disk in drive and press any key when ready.


Hi,
The maintenance disk was simply a floppy with rewritten code on the first few sectors that bypassed any kind of checksum or self-diagnostic. Useful if you lost or forgot your BIOS password. Also let the tech into the bios to look at settings before replacing the chip. Back then it was cost effective. Nowadays they just replace the whole dang shebang.
Here are your main options, in order of attempt:

1. Hold down esc key when booting, see if you can get into bios. If not...
2. Remove battery and disconnect ac adapter
3. Gently disassemble case until you find a round coin-like battery
4. Go out, buy replacement battery, replace battery, then reverse step 3 and 2

If these steps fail, you've a bad BIOS chip, you could try to ...
5. ebay it.

Hope this helps!

How can you Reset Portage 7000c BIOS PW?


Hi,

You could try and pop out the system battery and let it sit for a week and see if the password gets wiped that way. BIOS is EEPROM and that means data is stored even after power is removed, but if it sits for some time information like passwords and time are lost and need to be reentered in.

Thanks,
Armymason
