SOURCE: entered built in HDD1 user password

Hello

as the bios was reset the harddrive password was removed from the bios memory.

To get the password unlocked you will need to remove the harddrive from the laptop, buy a adapter so you can connect it to your pc and then do a few things Il tell you about later if your going to do it.

otherwice you can take the harddrive to a shop to be unlocked / reset to defaults.

SOURCE: i forgot bios password on

  Inorder to reset the password, you must open the case,  and on the Motherboard there is a round battery. Its the size of a nickel.  In some cases you can just remove the battery and wait a few seconds and then replace it.
  Another alternative is to short some pins that will clear the bios password.  In close proximity to that battery you should find a set of pins. Normally there are 3 pins together and there will be a jumper on one end of the 3 pins. What you have to do is to remove the jumper and move it to the other end of the pins. In other words if the pins are labeled 1-2-3 and right now there is jumper on 2 and 3., Then you will remove the jumper from there and place it on pins 1 and 2.    Once doing so will reset the password on the bios.  Wait a minute and then replace the jumper on 2 and 3. And then you should have your problem resolved....

SOURCE: toshiba SPM30 bios password remove

Hello,
All you need to do is open one of the covers on the backside of the laptop and remove the CMOS battery (it looks like the size of a quarter) for a few seconds, then place it back into it's holder and put the cover back on. You can then power up the laptop and then re-set up all the settings in the BIOS in order for the laptop to work correctly as all previous settings have been forgotten including the password.

Good Luck!

If you know the current password, use it to enter BIOS SETUP.
Then, type a "blank" ("space-bar") as the "new" password.

If you don't know the current password, you're stuck;
this is a "security" feature to prevent a stolen laptop from being used by the thief.

How do I fing toshiba A60 equium password


Hi,
pull the battery out and leave it out for a few minutes and then put it back in - if you can reach the bios then reset optimum settings - if there is a windows password then reformatting will get rid of that one.

Ive got a toshiba equium laptop bois password


Your BIOS password can only be removed if you can open the bottom plates and remove the button cell for a few minutes and reinsert it and close all plates and boot up. Also promise not to use passwords in future as we all tend to forget them sooner or later.

My toshiba equium just wont except the main password, cant reboot..cant get into bios


At this time you need to cleat the BIOS password first so that you can get into BIOS. To cleat the BIOS password you need to open your laptop you just remove the battery first. Remove the screw and open the back cover. Locate the CMOS battery, all password are stored in CMOS memory.

Remove the CMOS battery to clear the stored BIOS password, Or you can remove also the CMOS jamper near the CMOS battery and turn on the unit with in 10 second and turn off. Reinsert the jamper. Now the BIOS password are already clear you can get now in BIOS to change some settings. Good luck
