If it is a bios password just take the battery out of the motherboard for 30secs to a minute and then put it back in this usually removes the password.
this has mostly worked for me. i hope this helps.

    Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4


    The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

    1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

    2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

    3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

    4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

    5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

    6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

    7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

    8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

    9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

    10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

    11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

    12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

    I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

    Password bios toshiba 4000cdt


    If you've forgotten your BIOS password, or if someone has changed the password on your Toshiba laptop without your permission, then there are a couple things that you can do to reset the password and access your computer.

    Reset the CMOS

    · The CMOS is, in basic terms, the part of the motherboard that stores the BIOS settings. To remove the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop, your best option is to forcibly clear the CMOS.

    To clear the CMOS, you must remove the battery from your laptop and leave it out for at least 30 minutes to an hour. The way to remove the battery from your Toshiba will largely depend on the model. A common way to remove the battery--particularly with newer models--is to release the battery lock on the bottom of the laptop, while sliding the accompanying tab over to the side. This will pop the battery out from its tray so that you can then pull it out all of the way out.

    Before you remove the battery, turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Otherwise, you could end up harming yourself or the laptop components. You must also ground yourself to prevent damaging the laptop with static electricity.

    After about a half an hour or more, return the battery back to its tray and lock it into place. Power on the laptop. The computer, ideally, should no longer ask you for a BIOS password.

    It's important to keep in mind that resetting the CMOS means that all of your BIOS settings will be reset to factory default. Also, sometimes you may need to leave out the battery for much longer than an hour to reset the password

    Use a Backdoor Password

    · If resetting the CMOS doesn't work, then your next bet is to try using a backdoor password. A backdoor password is basically a password that manufacturers include with the BIOS so that technicians can access the computers that people send in for repair. An example of a Toshiba backdoor password is, unsurprisingly, "Toshiba." When the BIOS prompts you to enter a password, entering "Toshiba" may allow you to access your PC and clear the old BIOS password. Another option is to hold the left "Shift" key down while booting.

    My toshiba laptop is asking for a password it will not boot without it as soon as you turn it on it wants a password


    BIOS is set to password on....
    did anyone make changes to ur laptop....
    if so then only he can unlock it....as BIOS passwords cannot be unlocked....they are embeded in the BIOS microchip...
    only a BIOS update can undo it...and that's very RISKY...

    When I turn on the laptop it starts to come on then asks for password. what do i do. it will not let me go into setup with out password either


    Sounds like someone has set a BIOS power on password. I suggest that you ring Toshiba, and then ask them for what the master password could be, otherwise, it will most probably have to go back to Toshiba, for the BIOS to be replaced with an unprotected copy of itself.

    Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".
