Toshiba satellite pro 6100 bios reset?

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

    uhh...a bios password generally means it restricts you from getting into the bios, or windows unless you have the correct password.......so no I cannot get into the bios to change the bios 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...

    You are right the way to reset a 6100 is to remove the chip from the motherboard and rewrite the bios so I have been told as I have a board laying with that problem only it costs more to remove and rewrite it than the board is worth so I have been waiting to see if someone has found another solution,perhaps piggybacking something onto the chip I LIVE IN HOPE before the thing is so out of date and I throw it in the bin.

    How can i unlock the drive lock password on a TOSHIBA SATELLITE C655-S5125


    The password, otherwise known as the BIOS password that has been made into part of the Toshiba Satellite Laptop design, was built in for security reasons.
    However, Toshiba has also made life a little more difficult for those who have accidentally set the password, have forgotten it and don't know how to reset it.
    To prevent these troubles, there are routes to resetting or deleting the password completely from Toshiba laptops, including the Toshiba Satellite.
    Making the BIOS Password Removal Tool

    There is a connector plug that can help you with removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba Satellite laptop, including model numbers 1415, 1800 and Pro 6100. In fact, they work on most Pentium III Toshiba and Pentium IV Toshiba laptops.
    To make this tool, take the DB25 connector off of your printer.
    Remove the screws to take apart the plug.
    When you take it apart, you will see a bunch of wires there which should have enough length to strip and solder them.
    The pins on the connector are marked between 1 and 25, so connect the wires together from the following numbered pins: 1+5+10, 2+11, 3+17, 4+12, 6+16, 7+13, 8+14 and 9+15.
    Some of these may already be connected inside of the plug.
    Insulate these groups of wires with electrical tape.
    Using the BIOS Password Removal Tool
    Connect this plug to a parallel port in your laptop and turn the power on.
    This will take you past the password setting stage and right into the operating system.
    If you are not comfortable with making this tool yourself, you can purchase it online.
    It will save you some time and effort.
    Check the list of laptops with which it works to make sure that yours is one of them.
    Other Methods
    There are two other methods that you can use to remove the password from the computer.
    One is the option to buy the guide online, but you don't find out what the instructions are until you have paid for the product.
    If you are not comfortable with this option, then you can try the following option.
    When you start the computer you will see the KeyDisk, which is the 'A:' prompt.
    When you see this prompt, type in 'SBFIXMBR'.
    This will take you through a number of instructions.
    Follow these and it will take you past the BIOS area and into your operation system.
    You can also call Stratum or visit the Toshiba website and download the Toshiba BIOS Update.
    This update can be used to flash the BIOS, although in some cases, you will have to reinstall your operation system and will not be permitted access to BIOS at all.

    My Toshiba Satellite Pro, when I turn my laptop the screen comes on with Password= I forgot my password, how do I reset it?


    The first question is - did you create a password recovery disk? If not you will have to re-install the operating system.
    Your BIOS default will be set to start up from teh DVD drvie - insert the recovery disk and it will re-install the operating system.
