Bios password for Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600

I saw on you tube that it is possible to make a dongle to bypass the security bios password, it says to use an old printer cable and by cutting the wires and joining certain numbers together this will allow you to short out the bios security chip.
Could you please let me have the schematics of which numbers to join which numbers

    After several years of use, when I turned on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600 computer, it asked for a password. This appears to be the BIOS password set a long time ago, which I no longer remember. Is there an alternative to paying Toshiba Tech Service department to reset/bypass the BIOS password?

Try this. It worked on my 4300 series, but don't blame me if you brick your laptop.

BIOS Password


I know on other toshiba's they have to connect it to a usb or lpt1 port with a special dogel that will remove it... some laptopps and desktops use a EEROM that even if you take out the cmos battory it doesnt allays reset it.. so you might have to ship it to mfg..
ps just to make sure you took out the cmos/bois battory not the laptop battory
I think I saw the video on youtube of the guy using the dongle but know clue where to get it nor any one I know has an EEPROM programer... sorry

Cmos password lockout


Hi,
if this is a bios password lockout, you can try removing the CMOS Battery, for a couple of minutes to reset to factory default.
or using a password finding utility.
I have a CD that can do this, providing your DVD Drive will boot first.
