WHAT IS PHOENIX TRUSTEDCORE (tm) setup utility mean?


Some hardware or software has upset the serial number used by the BIOS (phoenix) to guarantee that the computer is the same as it was when it was bought. This is the trusted bit.
The setup utility needs to recalculate this number to include the new equipment, consult your laptop manufacturer Toshiba, via the support function.

When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?


Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

How to remove bios password of L505 S5984 model laptop


The basic input/output system (BIOS) is essential computer motherboard firmware. Using the BIOS menu, you can configure many system settings--for instance, the computer boot sequence--and also configure hardware, such as optical (CD/DVD) drives or a monitor. An optional password protects BIOS from unauthorized access. However, you may need to remove the BIOS password to facilitate the configuration of your system. The Toshiba laptop model Satellite Pro T1000 allows you to change BIOS settings and remove the password with a special Windows hardware setup program. 1. Click "All Programs" from the Windows start menu.
2. Open the folder "TOSHIBA" and click on "Utilities."
3. Click on "HWSetup" to start the Toshiba Hardware BIOS utility.
4. Click on the tab "Password" in the HWSetup window.
5. Select the radio button "Not Registered" in the field "Password."
6. Click the "Apply" button to to remove the password and save that change in the laptop BIOS.
Please rate me if you find it very helpful.

Thank you very much. Good day ahead on you.

Using the Motherboard "Clear CMOS" Jumper or Dipswitch settings

Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords. The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation. If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor. Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD. On laptop computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop.

Please remember to unplug your PC and use a grounding strip before reaching into your PC and touching the motherboard. Once you locate and rest the jumper switches, turn the computer on and check if the password has been cleared. If it has, turn the computer off and return the jumpers or dipswitches to its original position.
Removing the CMOS Battery

The CMOS settings on most systems are buffered by a small battery that is attached to the motherboard. (It looks like a small watch battery). If you unplug the PC and remove the battery for 10-15 minutes, the CMOS may reset itself and the password should be blank. (Along with any other machine specific settings, so be sure you are familiar with manually reconfiguring the BIOS settings before you do this.) Some manufacturers backup the power to the CMOS chipset by using a capacitor, so if your first attempt fails, leave the battery out (with the system unplugged) for at least 24 hours. Some batteries are actually soldered onto the motherboard making this task more difficult. Unsoldering the battery incorrectly may damage your motherboard and other components, so please don't attempt this if you are inexperienced. Another option may be to remove the CMOS chip from the motherboard for a period of time.

Note: Removing the battery to reset the CMOS will not work for all PC's, and almost all of the newer laptops store their BIOS passwords in a manner which does not require continuous power, so removing the CMOS battery may not work at all. IBM Thinkpad laptops lock the hard drive as well as the BIOS when the supervisor password is set. If you reset the BIOS password, but cannot reset the hard drive password, you may not be able to access the drive and it will remain locked, even if you place it in a new laptop. IBM Thinkpads have special jumper switches on the motherboard, and these should be used to reset the system.

Wanna unlock laptop dnt kno password


Try a 3rd party utilities which claim to unlock the forgotten password,the program that I recommend is the Windows Password Recovery 6.0, No need to call a technician, no need to re-install anything, and you certainly don't need to reformat.

Toshiba P200


Toshiba used to charge $175 to reset that password at a service facility. There is a way to crack that password but Toshiba threatened to sue me and deleted my post from the Internet (also offered me a job, lol). You get a DB25 connector and by shorting together a certain combination of wires, then plugging it in to the printer connector on the laptop while it is off. When you turn it on again the BIOS setup screen appears and you clear the password.   I have that wiring diagram somewhere but you can google 'Toshiba dongle' to see if it is still poted elsewhere. Good luck, Steve
