You can use Backdoor BIOS Password Its depends which one is your BIOS manufacturer. There are some listings for different manufacturers:

If you have AMI BIOS then try the followings:
A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, or PASSWORD.

If you have AWARD then try the followings:
eight spaces, 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.

Simillarly for Phoenix try the followings:

Laptop problem


footballkenn,

normally toshiba tecra has 2 type of switches for the wireless radio.

One will be the normal switch, which I think you can see it mounted on, either on the side or the front of the laptop,
another switch will be the function key on the keyboard, which require you to press the "fn" key. Check your keyboard for a wifi symbol which normally a tower with a radio wave.

Hope this help, come back if you still have the same problem, or other problem.

Your rate for my solution is much appreciated. thanks.

Hi... My 14 y.o. daughter has a Benq lap top (Joy book) which was purchased in Hong Kong 15 months ago. The other night, when she had it plugged in to recharge, we suddenly smelt a "burning...


hmm just ur power supply (battery) might have burned out if ur lucky
and if ur unlucky then ur mobo fried out also
so i would suggest is getting a replacement battery from a store that accpets returns (such as staples, best but or along these lines) and get a battery that replaces the old one. and if ur lucky the new battery would do the trick (this seemslike what happened)
if not.... just take the hard drive from that laptop and buy a new laptop and put the new hard drive in that laptop
or u can take it to a technician and ask him to see if ur mobo fried up and if its a real expensive laptop (probably is cause its a BEnQ) then just replace the mobo probably cost u around 150
