    A common method of entering the BIOS is pressing the Del key at Bootup other common
    methods are Ctrl +Alt +Esc and Ctrl + Esc. Most computers have a BIOS which can be
    configured to ask for a password as soon as the computer is switched on. If the Ask
    Password option is enabled then as soon as the PC is switched on a Dialog box welcomes you
    and asks you for the password. You cannot override this and there is no way of disabling
    this because to enter the BIOS you need to know the BIOS password. So what do you do?
    Disable it. Now to Disable the BIOS password you need to enter the BIOS. But as soon as
    you enter the BIOS the BIOS asks for a password. Now the most common method of overriding
    this password prompt is by trying out the default BIOS passwords. Some common passwords
    are: Lkwpeter j262 AWARD_SW AWARD_PW Biostar Many BIOS also have their default password
    that can be tried. "j262" opens most versions of Award BIOS it works about 80%
    of the time. "AWARD_SW" and "AWARD_PW" work on some computers as well,
    but much less often. In some BIOS shift+s y x z also works. The best way to find out the
    default passwords of various BIOS is to search at which is the
    best search engine for security related matter Well if the default passwords did not work
    them get ready for some serious Hacking stuff. Now as the default BIOS password did not
    work we will try to reset the BIOS to its default settings so that it asks for no password
    at all. So to do following: First you have to open the computer and then look for a round
    lithium battery, it probably looks like a silver coin. So remove the battery and after 30
    seconds or so put it back. Some computers may also require you to reset the jumper, so
    look for a 3-pin jumper and reset it. For example, on most machines you will find a
    three-pin device with pins one and two jumpered. If you move the jumper to pins two and
    three and leave it there for over five seconds, it will reset the CMOS. When you boot the
    machine some BIOS may give an error saying that the BIOS was reset or tampered with, but
    that is not such a big problem

    There's a pretty lame solution to the BIOS password problem. It's a program called
    KillCMOS which you can download from or if can’t find it there
    search for it at There are also a number of CMOS password
    crackers available on hacker Web sites. But using other doesn’t make you feel that
    you are hacking a computer and it is really lame to use someone else’s software for
    hacking and calling yourself a hacker

    How to bypass setup password on a toshiba satellite A105-S4074

    You can fix this by removing first removing all power, then remove the plastic cover above the keyboard, removing removing the two keyboard screws.
    You'll need to fold the keyboard in such a way that you don't damage the cable.
    You will see the wifi card just to the right. It's the only card there. It is held in place by spring clips. Remove the card from the connector.
    There are two solder contact points labeled "C88". Connect the power adapter to the laptop now. Short the two contact of "C88" and press the power on button. The unit should boot to the windows screen. Once it boots, you'll have to update to the latest BIOS.

    Here's how to reset password

    Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.
    Older Toshiba laptops can be convinced to boot without their power-on BIOS password by attaching a dongle to the parallel port which crosses a number of the pins. The pin out is:
    Pins 1-5-10 2-11 3-17 4-12 6-16 7-13 8-14 9-15 Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.
