Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 Notebook

Bios & Supervisor Password

Hi,
I was wondering if you can help please.

As soon as I switch my laptop on it asks for a, I assume, supervisor password & won't boot without it. I also cannot get into the bios due to a password.

I have tried:
1) removing all power ie adapter, main battery & the button cell next to the bios chip for at least 12 hrs.

2) removing Wlan card & shorting "PAD 2" cannot find C738 as someone else suggested.

3) Removed RAM to short the pin on the white square but cannot fing the white square.

If you have any suggestions they will be greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem with my M45 S-331. This is a flaw in the mother board. Toshiba fix mine for free.

Toshiba bios password removal process is meant for use on Toshiba laptops that you own or have had permission from the rightful owner to remove the password. If any of these processes are done incorrectly it may result in complete system failure or permanent system damage (you've been warned!).


Some Toshiba bios passwords can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk. Format the disk using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.

Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you'll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you're asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.

Aside from the KeyDisk, you can build a parallel Loopback plug, this is a simple device that plugs into the parallel port of the machine and removes the password when you boot it up.

To make it you will need a 25 pin DB25 plug, take the plug apart and join these pins using some old cable;
Pins: 1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15, and 18-25

Plug it into your parallel port and boot up your machine, the password should be removed as soon as it boots.

Note: This will work on majority of older Toshiba's (1995 – 2002) and obviously only ones that have a parallel port.

Hi ive got a dell vostro 100 pp23lb and when i switch it on it ask me for the hdd password and will not go any further. can you help thanks...


Hi,

I believe you changed the settings on the BIOS screen, enabling the system password/HDD password. The only way you can access windows is by typing the password you created. But if you already forgot it. Dell technical support can reset the password for you. Dell supervisors have access on reseting it.

Hope this helps.

Ibm thinkpad A30 2652


Some of the older thinkpad had a program you from the OS or a boot floppy to had to run to get change the bios settings. But the BIOS key on most is F1. So if you press that key as soon as you turn the machine on and anything appears on the screen, and once you've provided the password you can then change the password to blank within the bios.

If you don't know the password at all, there may still be a way to reset it, but it may require a call to IBM/Lenov, or some other tedious process.

your motherboard's configurations is set to ask for password as soon as booting
try using the password Toshiba ( with capital T ) or toshiba ( small t ) .. normally that's the backdoor password for Toshiba laptops .. if either don't work .. try to hold the left Shift key as soon as you boot the pc .. this also can be a solution to bypass the password.. if none is working let me know :)
