Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook
This is a solution from the following website:
I would only attempt this if your Portege is not under warranty and you are comfortable with getting your hands a little "dirty". Attempt at your own risk (but users with the same problem said it worked for them) Also, read the follow-up suggestion from siriuspowered on the same page.
MILLER7669 Newcomer, in training Member since: May 2008, 2 posts hey out there , I have been reading this post for awhile to learn how to reset the bios password/fingerprint . I finaly figured out how to reset it on my TOSHIBA SATELLITE A205 S4639 . I have included to pictures to help illustrate my success. I would like some feedback from others out there to see if this trick works on your model. First, I removed the memory sticks ( both of them ) then I noticed there were two contacts in the upper left corner, they should have (XXX) next to them. I removed the battery and plugged in the power supply and shorted these two contacts together and turned on the laptop. I noticed it reset the passwords and let me get into the Wind0w$ Vist@. Goodluck on your ventures.
If you cannot see the above pics, they are also located here:
Hope this helps!

The only way to obtain the response for the challenge code is to send your unit to an authorized repair facility. I work at the depot repair facility in Lou.Ky. And we have to send a request to Japan or California to get the response code.

also from what ive expereinced if you just pull out the battery like the first post say for like 10 minutes or more you should be fine and it will clear the bios giving you a fresh start at booting up the computer w/o any problems
