Hi There,

About the only way to reset the BIOS and therefore delete the password is to remove what's called the "CMOS" battery, and then hold down the power button for about 2 minutes, then replace the battery. It's small and may be coated in plastic. You should also have the main battery detached before doing this.

If you go to the below site, you can likely find a picture tutorial for disassembly of your laptop or one close enough to it to go just far enough to get at the battery. Toshiba doesn't provide Service Manuals for disassembly.

Call the manufacturer. As an "anti-theft" measure, once you "forget" a password (or if you are a thief who stole the computer) then only the manufacturer can bypass the BIOS-password.

I have a Toshiba laptop I got from a friend and I use to be able to get on it but now when I turn it on a blue strip appears and say enter password after three trys the laptop turns off. How do I fix this?

That is the bios password, in order to bypass that you would need to know the password, either ask your friend for the password, or you would need to remove the bios battery inside the laptop wait 10 seconds and place it back and turn on the laptop to reset the bios.

Bypass bios setup password hp pavillion

Step 1:
All computer BIOS chips have a backdoor master password designed to be used in the event that you can't remember the password you set yourself or by a tech support agent who is fixing your machine. These passwords are set at the factory level and do not change, no matter what model of computer you own. You will use this password to bypass the currently set password in the event that you need to access your HP BIOS but cannot.

Turn on your HP computer. Strike the "F2" keyboard key. Your HP computer will attempt to load your BIOS. You will be prompted to enter your current password. Type "merlin" into the password prompt and hit "Enter." This is the backdoor BIOS password for HP brand computers. You will now bypass the user defined password and the BIOS screen will load as normal.

Most laptop or notebook computers feature enhanced BIOS security, and BIOS passwords on laptops are hard to bypass. Several companies offer laptop security chip services that can be used to bypass the BIOS password on Dell laptops or notebooks and reset the security. They can provide a master password from the Dell Service Tag of your Dell laptop. This master password will allow you to bypass the existing password and enter the BIOS and reset the unknown password. To generate the master password they need to know the Dell Service Tag of your unit. Dell Master Password Recovery does not require soldering or disassembly of the laptop and supports most Dell models.

Dell BIOS passwords can also be reset by replacing the laptop security chip. Passwords can also be recovered from security chips that have been removed from laptop or notebook systems. These passwords may be required to attempt to unlock protected hard disks. Passwords recovered from these chips are the original BIOS passwords and may be the same as the hard disk password, but are not guaranteed to be the same and may not unlock the hard disk.These are usually damaged in the process of recovering the passwords and are not suitable for replacement into a computer.

Bios m45 password

You cannot bypass it the only way is to remove the battery inside the laptop for an hour or so, if you do this, it resets the bios. There is no other way unless of course you remember the password.
