TR members do not assist with password recovery.

by cmiller5400 In reply to where to remove bios pass ...

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

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. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc..

Usually there are 2 BIOS passwords ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to where to remove bios pass ...

One password to get past the BOOT password screen and boot into the operating system.

The other password is to ENTER the BIOS.

I suggest you use the second password to enter the BIOS, then delete the BOOT password once inside.

Well for starters there is no BIOS Battery

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to where to remove bios pass ...

These use what is called Smart Socket Technology which replaces the need for short term unreliable battery technology and can last for years if left unpowered unlike a battery.

So even if you pull it all apart there is no battery to disconnect and depending on which password you are talking about here the BIOS or Power On Password you need to take it to a Authorized Toshiba Service Agent and have them clear the Password.

After you prove Ownership of the NB they will charge you a fee to remove all the Passwords.
