I need help resetting bios password on my Toshiba A200 PSAE3A

By sales ·
Hi pplz i am new on this forum so bare with me plz, i have a Toshiba A200 laptop model number (PSAE3A-07MOO7).
I recently done a bios update and once it was finished the pc rebooted and first thing that came up after toshiba splash screen was it asking for a password that has never been set, now i have been quoted $189.00 by toshiba australia to repair it as it is no longer under warranty.
Is there anyone here who can give me some good advice and plz take note this laptop does not repond to the former solutions ie: parallel plugs or backdoor passwords or tripping (c88 capacitor)... thanks for your time

No kidding.
You will have to deal with Toshiba. This may help you, if it applies. \

Otherwise, you are out $189, or a laptop.

BTW, we don't assist with any sort of password recovery, cracking, etc. here. As a new member posting in the forum, you should make yourself familiar with forum rules before posting. Searching the forum before posting might help as well, as there a million questions just like yours, especially for Toshiba laptops, including one or two current threads. (Just sayin'.)

I'm sure that more terse and colorful responses will follow. Don't be surprised.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g.

Here you need to deal with Toshiba AU but you may be required to fight with them over a price.
