Also you can try this method:
ReSetting Bios Password on Toshiba Satellite A135-S2386

1)Remove Laptop Battery

2)Take off Memory Cover(underneath - square cover, Sits in middle of laptop 1 retaining screw

3)Using two thumbs spread spring clips to outside and pull out RAM memory.

4)Remove clear vinyl label opposite RAM memory slots in upper left corner( laptop battery slot is on right, DVD drive is facing away from you)

5)Using a magnifying glass (unless you have perfect vision)in the upper left corner you will see JOPEN1 with a white silkscreen square next to it . Inside the square you will see what looks like the letter T over a U. Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4" post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case(this is your ground, it is located above what looks like a silkscreen outline of a chip)hold for 25 -30 seconds.

6) Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1 or F2 for setup. Using the F2 gets you into the Bios menu where you reset the time and date. Then Tab over to the SECURITY setting tab and change your passwords. Now hit F10 key ,yes to save and your done!

Note: if your having trouble your most likely grounding the ground(that blob of solder about 1/8"dia on both ends of the "silkscreen chip outline" this is taken from this link:

Toshiba satelite bios password recovery


On laptops there isn't an easy way to recover passwords in the BIOS. Sometimes you can reset the password. Other times, you'll have to contact the manufacturer to get it reset.

Some laptops will allow you to reset the BIOS password by pulling the CMOS battery. The CMOS battery is typically located under one of the bottom panels for access to the memory or wireless cards. Some models have the CMOS battery connected by a small wire with a clip connector, others have the CMOS battery placed directly on the motherboard with a metal retainer clip.

Here is a link to a removable CMOS battery with wires: http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/removable-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg

Here is a link to a CMOS battery that is directly on the motherboard: http://www.laptopparts101.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/coin-cmos-battery-560x420.jpg

On a laptop, if you unplug the power cord, remove the laptop main battery and then remove the CMOS battery - and then wait at least 5 minutes, some models will blank out the BIOS password. Not every BIOS password can be erased by removing the CMOS battery - but if you are comfortable working on the laptop parts it is worth a try.

If removing the CMOS battery doesn't fix the BIOS password, the only option left is to contact the manufacturer for a reset. (If you took your laptop to a certified technician - they would just contact the manufacturer for the reset, and then bill the time to you!)

The number to contact Toshiba is 1-800-457-7777.

Cant find cmos battery on toshiba satelite l300 motherboard, need to reset hdd password


You cannot reset a HDD password (if its a bitlocker one) and you have lost your encryption key reset file and forgot password.
if you mean the BIOS/Power on password then try this
Remove Laptop Battery Remove Memory Cover Spread spring clips to outside and pull out RAM memory Remove clear vinyl label opposite RAM memory slots In the upper left corner you will see JOPEN1 with a white silkscreen square Inside the square you will see what looks like the letter T over a U. Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4"post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case and hold it for 25 -30 seconds. Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1 or F2 for setup. Using the F2 gets you into the Bios menu where you reset the time and date. Then Tab over to the SECURITY setting tab and change your passwords. Then hit F10 key

Remove password the bios of toshiba m45-s169


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

My kids setup a bios password on my new HP laptop and they cant remember it. How do i remove the password without knowing the previous that was set by them. Please guys help me.


The only way to do this is to reset the CMOS/BIOS memory.

  1. Remove the back cover of your laptop to "reveal" motherboard.
  2. Make a way so that you can see the a bigger portion of the motherboard ESPECIALLY the small lithium battery powering the CMOS chip.
  3. If this battery is reachable, remove it in place.
  4. After 3 minutes or more, place the battery back.
  5. Place the covers back and power on your laptop.
  6. The bios password now should be removed since the content of the CMOS memory is cleared.

The laptop is dead.


It does sound like your cmos battery. It is located on your system board. If your confident you can take the laptop apart and get the details from the battery and then goto a pc shop and buy a new one if not take the laptop to the shop and they can replace it for you.

Forgot password fot toshiba satellite m45-s169


Thats a Power On Password...I believe the only way that you can get around/reset/disable it...is by taking out the battery out of the Cmos. I will be looking for more ways other then that but thats one that i know works...
If you would like to attempt it...i dont recommend it for the no computer people...look up fourms and see if others have had the same problem or if people have taken the computer apart and replaced the cmos battery

Bios/startup password


yes, it will still be charged, to reset the bios password you need to locate the cmos battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so, but where exactly the battery is situated, i'm not sure.
