Remove the Batteray, does not reset the bios password and setting on Toshiba A105 Notebook, don't try to do this, you will have difficulties in puting the notebook back together. Believe me, I've tried!

The BIOS password can normally be removed by disconnecting your laptop from the mains supply and by removing your laptop battery and the BIOS lithium battery.
You can the short out the BIOS battery connections or leave the laptop alone for 1/2 hour or so. Then connect the mains supply only and power up your laptop, you should now be able get into your BIOS. Power down again and reconnect both batteries, power up laptop again and reconfigure your BIOS again.

How to Change/Reset a BIOS password Posted on 30 December 2008
Tags: Tech News, Tutorials If you are a normal computer user who has forgot his BIOS password and you are unable to access to your BIOS, then you need a simple way to change your BIOS. Its not that hard because you just need a simple trick to reset your BIOS password.
Open your CPU cabinet after switching OFF the power and then try to locate the CPU battery which can be found very easily. Once you locate your battery you need to remove it once and restart your PC without the battery.

You need to shut down your PC again and now add back the battery which will enable you the time saving feature and also reset your BIOS password.

SOURCE: Laptop SONY VAIO VPCEB32FM: how to remove BIOS password

The BIOS password is probably the Power On Password.
This method may not work. Remove the BIOS battery for 20 mins until the charge in the BIOS is depleted. Insert the BIOS battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date and Time etc.
If this does nor work then the BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work and there is probable no backdoor passwords.
The Sony support maybe able to offer a solution, check the support WEB site..

Forgot my password for my hp laptop


If you have forgotten your Windows login password then you can download a copy Hiren's Boot CD which is a CD image file (.ISO) then burn this to a blank CD and boot your computer from this.


On the initial Hiren's boot menu, select the option for:

Offline NT/2000/XP/Vista/7 Password Changer

and then follow the guided prompts shown on the further menu panels.


This tool will allow you to reset your Windows login password to all blanks (i.e. no password).

Can't boot and forgot bios password on ibm r50e


Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?

Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.

I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
