I carnt log on

try to answer your secret questions and reset your password by chosing "forgot password" option. If it is BIOS password you are referring to, go ahead and remove CMOS battery for 30 seconds and plug it in. Password gets cleared.

I have a used dell laptop. It wouldn't boot so I went into the boot sequence utility. It has the primary boot path as NIC CARDBUS. I wen to change it and there is a password on it. I have no idea

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 Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.

You need to open the PC case, then look for a 20mm (3/4") shiny lithium button cell.

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

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 the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop -

If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch

(almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

hope this helps

I forgot BIOS Password

Get onlineand got to In the google search box type: "ToshibaSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for Bios Password or Bios Password Reset.
I searched and Toshiba did not have any manuals or drivers for this model. Must be really old.
Anyway try the link below for removing the bios password.
You could try removing the cmos battery.

You will have to remove the power cord, remove the batteryand remove the CMOS Battery that is located on the motherboard. On mostcomputers you will have to take the laptop apart to get to the cmosbattery. On some systems it looks like a silver nickel that you will needa small flat head screw driver to pop it out. On other systems it will beinside a vinyl covering and has a cable that plugs into the motherboard. Once you remove the CMOS Battery, let it sit for an hour or two then put itback in and put the laptop back together. Boot the machine and you'llprobably have to go into the Bios or System Setup because the system will haveforgotten the date, time and password.

How can see my bios psswrd

BIOS passwords are only being generated if you do it manually. Just try to access your Bios and try a password that you often use. But try it only twice. Your unit will be screwed up if you do it the third time and it was the worng passowrd. or have someone probably a technician reset the CMOS battery inside the unit. This will surely remove the BIOS passowrd however your unit have to be opened physically.

Hope this helps.

Dear Sir I forgot bios password in lenovo g430. Computer is start. i want to fomatte pc at that time passowrd is ask i foget it so waht to do.

Disconnect all power sources, including the battery. Open the laptop and remove the CMOS battery (the little round silver thing). Hold the power button to drain any residual charge for 10 seconds. Boot the computer without the CMOS battery inserted. it should say password disabled. Reassemble the computer and you're done!

Actually you can clear the BIOS password by resetting the CMOS jamper. If you are familiar with CMOS jamper it is easy for you. Open your laptop with the use of screw driver. Once you are already open it locate the CMOS jamper near the CMOS battery at the south bridge of your laptop motherboard. Remove the jamper with in 5 seconds after that reinsert and trun on your laptop.
