Bios screen and boot screen ask for a
password I never set. Toshiba Tech support in India says I need to
purchase a recovery cd from them for $40 to reset password and wipe all
my data off.Will not work with a new HD. I took the laptop apart and was looking for J01 pin
to short out. could not find it. Could I remove bios chip for a reset?
Let me know..though it would make a nice anchor for my fishing boat

Re: toshiba locked with a password
Download the UBCD (ultimate boot CD) burn it to a CD and boot your laptop up with it (you may have to change the boot order to CD)
There is a utility on the UBCD for changing the BIOS password. http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

Sounds like the HDD password or Bios password got set.
You may need to talk to the person who set that password to be able to finish booting up the computer.
If that person is not available - you can call the Toshiba 1-800-457-7777. They may want to charge you for the over the phone support - but they should be able to walk you through how to get around the Bios or Hdd password if that is indeed your problem.
you will need to take the laptop to a tech, someone set a password for the boot. In order to reset the password you have to take the laptop apart and set the jumper setting to reset the Bios configuration. A tech will know how to do it, they will charge you probably 2-3 hours of labour so your looking at $150-$200 to have it done unless they cut you a really sweet deal.

Some Toshiba bios passwords can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to
do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk.
Format the disk to be BOOTABLE using Windows and then
with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59
Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you’ll be asked for a
password, just press Enter. Then when you’re asked to set the password, type Y
then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then
type in a new password.
If you are sure no one has tampered with it and entered a HDD password and it is not prompting for a password then it is most likely a HDD failure. It is possible the BIOS will still recognize the HDD. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the HDD if you can access it there should be screws on the bottom marked with a cylinder symbol.
Hello Oldnovii This Toshiba notebook has both a BIOS and hard drive lock on it. The client has already paid $ 25 to the Toshiba depot to have the BIOS lock removed now they want $ 100 to remove the hard drive lock. The hard drive lock cannot be removed by trying to bypass it using a boot cd or disabling the hard drive boot option in the BIOS. Any help will be appreciated since my client has now had the notebook for 2 weeks and cannot use it. Thanks
your motherboard's configurations is set to ask for password as soon as booting try using the password Toshiba ( with capital T ) or toshiba ( small t ) .. normally that's the backdoor password for Toshiba laptops .. if either don't work .. try to hold the left Shift key as soon as you boot the pc .. this also can be a solution to bypass the password.. if none is working let me know :)
