    Default Reset BIOS on Toshiba laptop

    Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop (C650) that decided to envoke the BIOS password. Was shut down normally one night then on startuo just give the enter password prompt.... gggrrrrr

    I get the F2 for setup and the F12 boot options (if your quick you see it) but neither work, always end up back at enter password!!

    It is a insyde H20 BIOS

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers

    You need to know the password in order to reset the password.

    Failing that you've got only two other options:

    A backdoor (factory) password
    Removing the battery or shorting the BIOS to reset it - either way, it'll likely involve pulling it apart, unless you can find a tiny hole leading to a reset button.

    Some (Older) Toshiba laptops let you reset the password with a special parallel-port connected dongle.

    You plugged it in and turned the machine on, and the password was automatically removed.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
