Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
I have a toshba notebook and had a problem with the HDD password and i got told to just pull out the bios battery and let it set for bout 5 min, well done that and now its telling me to put in the bios password. is there a way to reset the bios password? Thanks
I have a Toshiba satellite M105-S322 and all i had to do is open the ram compartment and pull up the plastic sticker or whatever you want to call it between the motherboard and the ram. There is a jumper called "CMOS_CLR1" use a screwdriver to short out the pins and it clears the CMOS.

Power unit off. Disconnect AC power. Remove battery. Remove the memory cover screw, memory cover and the memory modules. Peel back mylar from JOPEN1 solder pad. Short JOPEN1 solder pads for 30 seconds. Replace mylar. Replace memory modules. Replace battery. Power up unit. If all is well, replace memory cover and screw.

Sometimes it is not possible to clear the bios password on a notebook as the manufacturer guards against it in some cases, but you will probably have to remove the cmos battery and also look for the cmos clearing terminals on the motherboard called clrcmos or clrclk or jbat1 or similair also, to try to delete any password.

Thanks for all your help. I haven't done the work yet, but with all the different methods you've shared I'm sure one will get me past this problem. I just bought the Toshiba and it has a wonderful large screen. I'm looking forward to being able to use now. C. Morgan Richards

All you have to do is find the jumper on the mother board and it will reset itself 100%
