    I've tried removing the battery already and it didn't work...what do you mean "jummer setting" is it "jumper setting"...if that is so, the Toshiba Tecra M4 doesn't have a clear bios/cmos jumper setting...Although there are two solder points under the keyboard that says "RESET"... I've touched these two solder points together with a paper clip but nothing happened...Please anyone knows how to reset the bios password??

The BIOS pwd last time I checked could not be reset. You would have to contact the Toshiba Support and they may have another work around for the BIOS password. This is used commonly as an anti theft measure.

Toshiba laptop tecra M4 bios password

The password may be saved in flash memory that needs no battery to retain it.
There is surely a 'cheat' to reset the password but I suspect the method is not real public since it could be used to reset a stolen unit too. You might check for a retail outlet that sells Toshiba and call them to see if they can do this for you. Most service techs will want to see some proof of ownership before accepting it for resetting.
