Question about Computers & Internet
I had a bios password on my laptop, and I wanted to remove it. I went into the bios, reset it to factory defaults, saved it, and restarted the laptop. Guess what, now I can't get into the laptop at all, old password doesn't work, and it won't accept a blamk password
The Password can be removed via the printer port
What you need is a password removal tool, It removes the Bios and start-up passwords.
It costs about £5.00. Easy to build but it costs more to put the kit together.
I think you were quite hard on the assistance.
People here are just trying to help. At least appreciate that!

To remove the bios password you will need to look for J1 jumper on the motherboard, unlike desktop motherboards with traditional jumpers this jumper is flat on the board are look like two copper pads that do not touch in the center you will need to take a paper clip and short it. Most of the time in most toshiba notebooks it is in the same area as the RAM next to it will say j1

This forum has to be the worst for help I have ever used. It seems like nobody either understands what I'm saying or you are all a bunch of idiots!! Obviously none of you have had any experience with bios passwords on laptops, so let me explain. When a laptop is locked with a bios password, it is essentially unusable. The password appears as soon as the laptop is turned on. It appears before you can get into the bios, or b4 you can boot from a cd, so your only option is to find a way to reset the password. It is usually done through a jumper on the motherboard, or by removing the cmos battery, or you may have to replace the bios chip itself, so removing the hard drive, and installing windows on it....is totally pointless, and a complete waste of time. Please refrain from posting information if you do not have a clue about what you are talking about...
