Hello,

This is a solution from the following website:
http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic102975.html

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 I have a Portege with a bios password I can't get - user_offline.gif 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:

Nedacqua,

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.

I have a toshiba portege model 3505 that has a password at bois i cant remember my password how do i get in to my bois


That BIOS-password exists to protect you, should a thief gain posssession of your computer.

Find your original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the rightful owner, and telephone Toshiba.

Ask for Technical Support -- they can help you "nullify" that BIOS-password.

How to reset the boot password in toshiba portege a100 laptop


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.

Toshiba portege 7100 serise laptop,,, dont know password


Can you press F2 and DEL lots of times to get the BIOS menu up?
If so then does it ask for a password?
If so then you have a BIOS password set. Unless you can boot the laptop to DOS or from a CD it is difficult to bypass this.
The other way is to disconnect all batteries - including the one inside the chassis and then leave it for at least 1 hour.
Then connect it up again and see if the pasword is reset,
