BIOS passwords on the 9100's can be cleared by using one of them parallel port password removal key - cheap ones are under $10 on eBay (and you can make your own, too!). Don't bother with the CMOS battery - you can unplug it and wait 10 years and it'll still be there :)

If you unplug both the battery and wall jack (DC Power), then open up the laptop, and remove the CMOS battery. Once the CMOS battery is removed with out anything powered push the power button and hold it for about 10-30seconds to perform a power drain on the CMOS this should reset your BIOS, also look to see if there is a BIOS/CMOS reset jumper if there is, place the jumper to reset and plug in some type of power, in order to turn on the computer, then turn the computer off... Reseed the battery, plug into the wall if needed, and then your should be able to get into the BIOS/CMOS with out any problem.

There is a battery on the motherboard. Removing it for about 1/2 hour should clear the bios. There are several software methods also. Google 'bios password removal' to find one.

Password shows on start up i think it's a bios password


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link to see your options: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password

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

Boot Password


Actually its a malfunction and Toshiba knows it.
You should contact Toshiba, and they will fix it for free.
They will have to flash the BIOS, and fix the bug that caused it.

No hard disk found


From what you describe, your 40GB should be compatible with Tecra 9100.
I'd suggest you reset the BIOS settings to the factory defaults, just to ensure there are no wierd settings. Have you managed to use any other HDD with your Tecra 9100 previously?

Have You checked for a BIOS update for this model / vintage ?

Toshiba laptop tecra M4 bios password


The password may be saved in flash memory that needs no battery to retain it.
There is surely a 'cheat' to reset the password but I suspect the method is not real public since it could be used to reset a stolen unit too. You might check for a retail outlet that sells Toshiba and call them to see if they can do this for you. Most service techs will want to see some proof of ownership before accepting it for resetting.
