Question about Computers & Internet
My name is Wizard ; I have tried to remove the bios password from my toshiba , by removing bios batery but I failled because da password is still in .and i have tried to user da default bios and i didn't succes so please could u help with another way ok thanx
If it is a Toshiba Laptop can you tell me the model. The earlier models had the bios in the hard drive and there was a simple boot bios on the mother board. If you are removing the battery it will not reset the password it is embeded in the hard drive bios. I ran into this with one of my customers. Let me know what model it is and I can help you further
Be mucho blessed,

It's the 'clear cmos' jumper you need to move on the motherboard. If you move that over one pin for a moment, then back, then boot up, your p/word will be cleared.

The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps
