    Default Toshiba Satellite, BIOS password

    I have been handed a Toshiba Satellite A10 laptop.
    As soon as you turn it on you are greeted by the users name, a phone number, and password =
    The thing is, noone can remember the password
    If this were a desktop, I would have no problems, but I know next to nothing about laptops other that there are a lot of things you can do to a desktop that you can't do to a laptop. (Like wipe a BIOS password)

    Need help

    Something here might work

    Some sites say you can pull it to bits, put a dongle in the parallel port, or you'll have to contact toshiba

    Incidentally, no parallel port

    TOSHIBA BIOS

    Most Toshiba laptops and some desktop systems will bypass the BIOS password if the left shift key is held down during boot

    Alternatively, clear the settings by removing the cmos battery for 10 minutes (if its easily accessable), as mentioned in Speedy's site.
