    I did not put a password in it. It just appeared. I had no resin to go into the bios at all. I am the only one that even knows how to get into the bios. I have gone into the computer and disconnected the battery and it is still there.

    How did the password get there in the first place? It cannot happen by accident (you need to confirm the password and approve the changes). I'd suggest to discover who it was that set the password: roommate, previous owner, IT head and so on. Then, if possible, have him/her remove the password or tell you what it was. Can you still boot the machine (i.e. the password only prevents you entering Setup) or is the boot locked as well?

    give it to an IT expert to set defaults to CMOS battery. this can be done by removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard and leaving it out for 30 minutes then slot it back. this will reset all the settings in BIOS including the passwords....

I have a toshiba A215-S7437 and i get the error message read disk error when trying to boot up


A disk error is a fatal error on the hard drive, SMART monitoring will show you this in the BIOS, restoring to factory settings will not cure it.
You need to get a new hard disk and reinstall your OS

My toshiba laptop is asking for a password it will not boot without it as soon as you turn it on it wants a password


BIOS is set to password on....
did anyone make changes to ur laptop....
if so then only he can unlock it....as BIOS passwords cannot be unlocked....they are embeded in the BIOS microchip...
only a BIOS update can undo it...and that's very RISKY...

BIOS password won't turn off


You wanted one you got one. Only way to clear is to reset the BIOS by removing power,laptop battery and BIOS battery on MoBo. That involves taking laptop apart.

Weren't you being clever!

Toshiba a215-s7437 bios password what is it?


from release it doesn't have a bios password, the shop who slod the laptop to you must have put the password in, or maybe someone you know put it in. the only way you are going to get around this is to ether give the password from who put it in or take it to a IT shop and have them remove the bios battary overnight and then put it in again. that will remove all password settings and change all bios settings back to default settings
