Bios password

Assuming you're looking to reset the BIOS password of the'll have to reset the BIOS.
Turn off the laptop and disconnect the power source. Turn the laptop over, remove the battery. Remove the HDD too just to be safe. Remove the panel for the memory module. Underneath there should be a jumper which is know as the BIOS jumper. Take a piece of wire with both end exposed. Place one end on each of the BIOS jumper and hold them in place. While still holding your make shift jumper in place, turn on the laptop. You should see the Toshiba logo appear then go away. After that you should get a "no bootable device" message because we remove the HDD in an earlier step.
The password is no longer shutdown the laptop.
Now, reinstall the HDD, battery, and memory panel. Turn on the laptop and you should no longer be prompted for a password.

Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4

The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Locked out of bios on my Toshiba u205.

Synopsis: When a Supervisor password is set, access to the BIOS is restricted by default unless the Supervisor Password is entered at the "Password=" prompt when starting the notebook. However, should the User/Power-on Password NOT be set then no such prompt will appear, and access to the BIOS will not be possible.

Solution: To access the BIOS set-up routine in the above scenario it is necessary to start the notebook from cold (not from standby or hibernation) whilst holding down the "INS" key. This will force the "Password=" prompt to appear. After entering the Supervisor Password a small menu will be displayed, and one option on this menu is to access the BIOS set-up ro

When i turn the computer on it prompts for a bios password.

Apparently, this laptop sets the password by itself because of some kind of glitch in the earlier BIOS releases. I believe this problem was fixed with the latest BIOS release.
But how can you upgrade the laptop BIOS to the latest version if you cannot bypass the password?
1. If the laptop is still under warranty take it to an authorized repair center. They should clear the BIOS password without any charge.
2. If the laptop is not under warranty, you can try to clear the BIOS password yourself. You’ll find instructions here and here.
After the password has been cleared, upgrade the laptop BIOS to the latest version. You can download it from the Toshiba website.
