To reset the BIOS you shouldn't need to mess with the parallel port. If you can open it up enough to gain access to the CMOS battery you can either pop it out for a minute to reset it or use a reset switch if it has one. Perhaps you aren't attempting the same thing I am thinking of, however.

My computer is requesting for bios password and i cant remember it how to i reset it


No getting around this one... but you can make yourself a parallel port key and it'll remove the password on power up. Buy an old, parallel port printer cable, cut it, and wire it yourself. Here's the link to the wiring diagram:

Sorry I have toshiba portege 100 but whwn I switch on open the bios password and I dont have the password tell me what I do??


To remove the BIOS password on this model, you'll need a parallel port, which comes on a port replicator or a dock cause the laptop doesn't come with one. After that, you'll need to make a parallel port password key (buy an old, parallel port cable, cut it, locate the schematics http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/CmosPwd, and connect the appropriate wires), and that'll do it.

Toshiba bios password removal process is meant for use on Toshiba laptops that you own or have had permission from the rightful owner to remove the password. If any of these processes are done incorrectly it may result in complete system failure or permanent system damage (you've been warned!).


Some Toshiba bios passwords can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk. Format the disk using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.

Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you'll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you're asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.

Aside from the KeyDisk, you can build a parallel Loopback plug, this is a simple device that plugs into the parallel port of the machine and removes the password when you boot it up.

To make it you will need a 25 pin DB25 plug, take the plug apart and join these pins using some old cable;
Pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, and 18-25

Plug it into your parallel port and boot up your machine, the password should be removed as soon as it boots.

Note: This will work on majority of older Toshiba's (1995 – 2002) and obviously only ones that have a parallel port.

On earilier model Toshiba a parallel port dongle will remove thw BIOS password.

Forgot my address and my password to get on my computer. it has been in storage for a few years and i forget everything, how do i get on?


If it is a bios password then read on...(I'm assuming it is since you need the address to provide to Toshiba to reset it).

You can either do this yourself to reset the bios password on the toshiba model you have or take it to a laptop repair store and they can remove it for you (costs between $40-$80).

You need to build a Parallel port jumper in order to reset the bios password.
If you're technical follow the guide to build a loopback:
http://www.laptop-repair.info/toshiba_bios_password.html

The parallel port connector is available at RadioShack and computer stores for $5-$10. You will also need some speaker wires ($2-$4) at radioshack.

If this is too technical get it done by a Laptop Repair Tech.

Bios password


Try toshiba first!

Most Toshiba laptops and some desktop systems will bypass the BIOS password if the left shift key is held down during boot.

To reset the password of a Toshiba, you can use KeyDisk.

If this doesn't work, you can try to build the Toshiba Parallell loopback.
To make a device that you connect to your parallell port, a lot of Toshiba computers remove the password when you boot it up. The device, named "loopback" ,could be made out of any parallell wire with 25pins connectors (db25). Connect these pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, 18-25
