Clearing the BIOS Password on Toshiba Laptops: A Few Options
There are three main options when trying to reset the password on a Toshiba Laptop.
Before we get too far, are you sure you have tried every password you can think of? Perhaps you've used a password over and over again in the past, or maybe a friend or family member has one that they used. If you cannot find it, then here are your best options for resetting the BIOS password.
1) Toshiba Repair Centers
Even if your laptop is out of warranty, it is possible to have the password cleared for the cost of only shipping. Toshiba's support site has a page for finding out the status of your warranty, and for helping you find a repair center. Here is the link:
There they can take care of the problem for you.
At http://www.cgsecurity.org/ there are tools for resetting the password. The easiest is KeyDisk. You can find it at the bottom of http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/CmosPwd. The easiest way to aqcuire this utility is by downloading and burning a copy of the Ultimate Boot CD. Insert the disk into the CD-ROM drive and then run the KeyDisk utility. You will find it in the menu under "BIOS" and then "KEYDisk." This utility will let you clear the password. If this does not work, then the last option may be useful to you.
