Dear friends,
its just a technique and if u wish u can do it.

This is what you need:
1. Your notebook
2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)
This is what you have to do:
1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
2. Put the disk in drive A:
3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
5. Remove the disk from drive A:
6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password.

Enjoy !!!
Disclaimer: I dont have any responsibility for any type of loss arised due to applying this process. Its just for educational purpose.So..do it at your own risk.

The Bios password for the toshiba laptop cannot be replaced by any SW it must be brought to the authorized toshiba shop for the BIOS password reset.

you can also check the support page of toshiba which is pcsupport.toshiba.com and you can serch there for the BIOS password reset, if your unit is included on the list of the unit that has the automatic on password you can call their techsupport even out of warranty for a free reset but if your unit is not included in the list there will be a charged for the rest of that to the authorized repair centers

    How to unlock toshiba satellite laptop BIOS and HDD


    If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios for a fee and it is not cheap, they may include the HDD reset, if not! www.ebay.com type password, or hard drive password. I would check bios password, probably a lot cheaper if you can find the right seller, also check www.download.com some software may be free.

    To reset the BIOS password 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.

    Toshiba Satalite M35 x, trying to clear bios password, i never set it! Plus the keys are locked, password field will not accept anything


    I copied this info from a website since it needs a very particular solution. The only time I had to use it, it worked.
    Go to setup (if it lets you) and check the BIOS brand and version.
    (If you cant do anything due to the password, then you need some hardware to do that). I hope this helps

    Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
    Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers Reported BIOS backdoor passwords for other manufacturers include:

For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.
    Resetting the BIOS Password using Software Every system must store the BIOS password information somewhere. If you are able to access the machine after it has been booted successfully, you may be able to view the BIOS password. You must know the memory address where the BIOS password is stored, and the format in which the BIOS password is stored. Or, you must have a program that knows these things.
    You can write your own program to read the BIOS password from the CMOS memory on a PC by writing the address of the byte of CMOS memory that you wish to read in port 0x370, and then reading the contents of port 0x371.
    !BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.
    CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:
    • ACER/IBM BIOS
    • AMI BIOS
    • AMI WinBIOS 2.5

    Unknown bios password


    Did you or someone else change it? Normally there is no BIOS password.

    Why do you need in??

    To remove the password, remove the BIOS battery for 5 minutes and put it back in.

    Free advice - don't use a BIOS password. It does nothing outside of a corporate environment.

    If you think this will change or remove a Windoes password ... well ... sorry, it will not.
