RESET POWER ON PASSWORD


The BIOS pwd last time I checked could not be reset. You would have to contact the Toshiba Support and they may have another work around for the BIOS password. This is used commonly as an anti theft measure.

Toshiba Tecra 8000 Laptop has been stored for 1 year, never had a password, now when turned on just sits there asking for a password, pulled it apart and disconnected 2? batteries but made no difference


Try accessing the BIOS screen when it boots up by pressing either the ESC or F1 keys repeatedly and there should be a password or supervisor password section where you can disable all the passwords.

Boot Password


Actually its a malfunction and Toshiba knows it.
You should contact Toshiba, and they will fix it for free.
They will have to flash the BIOS, and fix the bug that caused it.

This is a Toshiba bug.

Find an authorised repair center here:

They'll fix it for free. Should take them only a few seconds so try to convince them to repair it while you wait to save yourself time.
