I can't find a decent manual for your laptop but there will be 2 pins on the motherboard that will say BIOS Clear. Short these 2 pins and turn the computer on. This is the only way to bypass the BIOS password. This operation will clear the BIOS and reset to factory defaults. After the BIOS is cleared, turn the computer off and take off the short.
Thats a Power On Password...I believe the only way that you can get around/reset/disable it...is by taking out the battery out of the Cmos. I will be looking for more ways other then that but thats one that i know works...
If you would like to attempt it...i dont recommend it for the no computer people...look up fourms and see if others have had the same problem or if people have taken the computer apart and replaced the cmos battery
BIOS passwords on Toshiba notebooks have to be reset by an authorized service technician who has the CD available to run the utility. Their notebooks don't contain a battery reset to erase the password. It was done as a safety feature to prevent theft from happening and it is a very good one.
If you take it into Best Buy or a computer dealer to get it done, you might have to prove that you are the new owner of the computer before it can happen.
Which Windows operating system you are using. If its XP you stuffed you will need to reinstall Windows. But try this sometimes the Administrator has no password and you may be lucky. Startup the machine holding the f8 key to safe mode if the the Administrator is available remove the password from you login in the Users Mode. If it is locked than the alternate is to reinstall there is no other solution.
yes, it will still be charged, to reset the bios password you need to locate the cmos battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so, but where exactly the battery is situated, i'm not sure.
