Fix BIOS incorrect power-on password prompt on certain Toshiba Laptops

Q: Fix BIOS incorrect power-on password prompt on certain Toshiba Laptops

I turned on my computer last night and was locked out with a BIOS password prompt. Super frustrating and it takes a lot of time to send in laptop for "free" repair as noted on Toshiba Support Notice: http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaS...iceId=&dialogID=33671841&stateId=0 0 33673053

I found the repair info over several blogs and forums regarding this problem. It is a really easy fix, with just a little bit of work and patience. I have a Toshiba Satellite A105-S4014. This should also work on a A100 since they are of the same family.
1) like always with anything that you do when taking your computer apart, take out the battery and unplug it (common sense)
2) Remove the plastic cover piece above the keyboard, called the "keyboard bezel". this is the piece where you can see the speakers. This page gives several pictures as to how to do this. http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a135/remove-mainboard-2.htm
**I found it a little bit difficult to get the plastic retaining clips to "pop" loose, but if you are careful, you can use a small screw driver and slowly "wiggle-pry" between the two screen mounts. this is done with the screen all the way back. you could use a paper clip with a little 1/8" bend at tip to do this also. (it is a tight working area) Once these three retaining clips have come loose the others are fairly easy to "pop" Just be patient and work it slowly. once this is bezel is off the rest is super easy.**
3) Remove the keyboard. Remove the two screws that are evident once the bezel has been removed. These hold the keyboard in place. Lift the keyboard up from the screw side and the retaining clips at the front of the keyboard will lift out. (there is no need to pry here). Once the keyboard is loose you will have to either leave it connected, just off to the side, or disconnect it from the mother board. The keyboard cable connector has a black clip along the top of it. just lift this clip up a little and the keyboard cable will slide out. (the keyboard cable does not have a fixed connector, but is just a ribbon that is held in place by the black clip along the top of the keyboard cable connector) Once you have removed it you will better understand what I mean.
4) Remove the wireless card. It is the only card visible at this point. It is connected by metal spring clips. just unclip in a similar fashion as removing ram. You do not need to disconnect the wires connected to card, just move card over to expose area below card.
5) This is where the magic is... you will see C88 clearly labeled right next the jack that the wireless card plugs into. There are two little solder squares (approx 1/16") at this location. *** At this point plug the power adapter to your computer again. ***
You will have to jump the two solder squares at label C88. I used a paper clip to do this. I used pliers to bend a 1/8" long "L" and then "scuffed" up the paperclip with the teeth of the pliers. (my first try at this did not work because the paperclip had a varnish coating on it and did not adequately conduct electricity.) Once you have your paperclip set up (or the one you used to pry the bezel with) hold it in place on these two solder contact squares and press the power button to boot your computer.
6) Your computer should boot right up and bypass the bios password, which is now reset/ erased. (You might see the Windows Error startup screen that gives you different options of start up to choose. If you disconnected your keyboard, just wait for screen to time-out and it will continue on its own) Once you have booted into windows use your mouse pad to shutdown, via start-shutdown method.
7) Disconnect your power. Reinstall your wireless card and keyboard (with screws). Don't reinstall keyboard bezel at this time. Once everything (but bezel) is reinstalled, restart the computer with battery and AC adapter connected. This should boot right into your computer without any trouble. (if for some reason it does not boot up correctly and asks for the bios password again you will be glad you left the bezel off. just redo the steps again.)
8) Go to Toshiba and get the latest Bios for your laptop. here is the link: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp
Choose your computer in menus provided. download the latest bios version. Using a cd burning program like "Nero" burn the image file to a cd. reboot computer and press F12 to choose boot method and boot from cd. this is the best way to update your bios. there is a way to just run from windows but I do not recommend it. This is a way to get into even worse trouble. If you need software to burn Image files just go to Nero and download their trial. It will work for 30 days and will work perfectly for this important task.
9) If for some reason you are still having trouble just reply to post and I will see if there is more that I can do to help.
I hope this has been of help to those as frustrated as I was. It is long winded but I like things explained fully before diving into a toy that costs a lot of money. I also do not like to send my computer away to some company that may or may not invade my privacy. I have a lot of personal stuff on my computer, as we all do. When the fix is this easy, I would rather do it myself.
SHOULD WORK ON FOLLOWING COMPUTERS: (other models probably follow a similar approach though.)

I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.

I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.

Has anybody had any similar experience like this?
I would really appreciate any help its driving me crazy.

I recently purchased a 2nd ThinkPad 240 on eBay.  My existing unit boots just fine but sometimes the display goes nuts until I press on the bezel beneath the LCD a few times.  I was hoping the 2nd unit would be an easy fix so I could use it instead of the original unit.  The 2nd unit was identified as having a password prompt that comes up and the seller included a screen shot that showed it to be the "power-up password" prompt.  According to the Service Manual for this model, it should be a simple fix by powering down, disconnect the AC power, remove the battery pack, unscrew 3 screws and lift the keyboard out of the way then short the J1 jumper to clear the BIOS.  That was easily enough done but unfortunately it has yet to remove the power-up password prompt.  I tried pulling the battery pack overnight but that didn't have any affect.  I have not been able to see a backup battery in the unit so far.  Both of my 240's have serial numbers in the BA-98xxx range which I believe indicates they have the Type A LCD display.  Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!

Welcome to the forum!What you're looking at is known as Supervisor Password, and there is little that you can do with the board unless you know the password.Forum rules prohibit password cracking techniques.You should have no issues transplanting the screen from the unit #2 to unit #1, though.Good luck.

Hello. I'm new to this forum, and I'm not super experienced, so I hope I'm not overlooking something basic or don't understand something, but here's my question:

I set the "supervisor password" and the "user password" in the BIOS set-up in windows xp professional (pavilion a1010, p4). After turning off the computer and then powering it back up, I am not prompted for the "user password" (which is the power-on password, right?). I am, however, prompted for the "supervisor password", if I try to enter BIOS set-up, indicating to me that the CMOS battery is good. When I do enter BIOS set-up the "supervisor password" and the "user password" are still indicated to be "enabled". Any insights on why my computer is not prompting me for the power-on password would much appreciated. Thank you.

Our firm has had many Latitude e5520, 30, 40 and 50 computers over the past 6 years.  I always set up the BIOS system password option.  We also use the Dell port replicators with multiple external monitors.  When the user turns on the computer using the power button on the port replicator the BIOS password prompt screen would appear on the external monitor so they can enter the password.  We have recently purchased 5 new Latitude e5570 computers.  I set up the BIOS password on these new computers just like I have done in the past on the older models.  However it seems that the Dell logo and the BIOS password prompt does not appear on an external monitor.  I removed the computer from the port replicator and connected a VGA monitor to the external monitor port on the back of the e5570 and still the BIOS password screen does not appear.  I have to open the laptop to view the BIOS password prompt to enter the password then the external monitor will display the Windows 7 boot up screen.  I spoke with Dell tech support and they said that this is normal.  How can this be normal when all Latitude model e5520, 5530, 5540 and 5550 never had this problem. I even downloaded the most recent BIOS update and that did not fix the issue.   I cannot have the user open the laptop just to see the BIOS password prompt.  I told Dell support that something is not right with their BIOS software but they again said the e5570 is working ...

Have a Satellite PRO S300 (PSSB0A-06500T) which is BSOD-ing with Stop 7B and I want to get into the full part of the BIOS so I can reset boot order to enable me to re-install Win XP.

Esc - F1 just gets me into the restricted part of Page 1 of the ACPI BIOS set-up. I know the Supervisor password! So how do I get to a password prompt that will allow me into both pages of the BIOS set-up.

I have tried F12 on boot to attempt to get into the boot options on the Toshiba splash screen, but that does not work.

yesterday i set the bios/supervisor password.

When i now turn on the notebook, i can see the Toshiba - Leading innovations screen and then it goes dark and won't boot any further.

The harddisk / fan / graphics card etc is working - but i don't see anything nor do i get some kind of prompt or shell or whatsoever.

I tried all those "Press, ESC, Press F2, Press F1, Press INS" stuff, nothing worked out.
I removed the battery for several mins while pressing the power button, nothing.

Maybe somebody has some kind of clue whats wrong with this maschine....

Did you use some high ASCII character like ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? etc in your BIOS / Supervisor password?

In the past the usage of such characters prevented the notebook from booting up.
In such case you had to contact the service partner in order to solve this problem.

HiAbout week ago, my Toshiba laptop spontaneously crashed, so I used the "Delete/Pwr Button" method to shut it down. When I booted up again, it asked me for a password (right after the intro screen which proudly states "Toshiba", and use the F2, F12 keys now to choose boot setting and/or setup). I didn't know the password, so after three random (and wrong) combinations, the system shut itself down. I tried it several times, and I tried the F2 and F12 keys, but both of them require the same password. So, naturally, I started researching online. I found some "back way" passwords, but none of them worked. I also found a PCI plug, a floppy disk, but the laptop can't use either of those (curse buying good computers in the 21st century!). Any advice?

I bought a Toshiba SA50-112 on EBay and have found that the BIOS is passworded. I have hunted for a solution, removed the CMOS battery and taken it apart to try to find anything to short across and have not found anything that works.
It does not have a parallel port so cant use that device. No floppy drive for a software solution. The person I bought it from said he picked it up in a job lot and cant help. Toshiba are, as always, utterly useless unless I pay them more than the laptop is worth (their standard way of doing business).
Can anyone help me, please?

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2. If you KNOW the password this is the procedure
If you know the password for the BIOS or UEFI or don't have one set, you can change or remove a password through the UEFI/BIOS settings, Hardware Setup Utility, or TOSHIBA Security Assist Utility.
As explained on the link with the sub links to the appropriate OS
3. The procedure you appear to refer to, irrespective of where you found it is - I would think part of a suggested method when you do NOT know the password.
4. If that is the case, then one of the rules of this site is

Passwords - Please do not ask for assistance with (or ways to bypass) a forgotten or unknown password, personal identification number (PIN) or any other type of access code that may be required on a computer, mobile device or web site.

I just had my toshiba satellite 2410, pentium 4, xp-sp2, mobile processor,512 RAM, 40 gigs into the authorize warranty depot for a replacement of the mouse pad as the warranty was almost up.
It is now over. (this was May 23) I had called a week and a half earlier, however they said the parts were delayed and did not arrive until the day before my warranty was up.

I had to go in for medical surgery directly after and did not use the computer until this past week and noticed when I took the notebook down to my software techie who was removing Norton Systemworks for me as I don't how to do it cleanly, that my BIOS password was not in place.

He tried to replace it, however it would not set.
I phoned the warranty depot and I am not a tech oriented person and know little about BIOS and I should say that my software techie called them as well.

I should say that I have used this software techie since I have owned the computer and he knew that I had a BIOS password and so he discussed the issue with the warranty depot tech who replaced my mouse pad.

Not sure where to send this but I was just reviewing your Alienware 15 systems to purchase a new system for myself here
and noticed typos for the 1st two systems regarding the graphics cards, it states "NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with 8GB GDDR5X", they are in fact only 6GB and should not have the "X" in GDDR5X. Just thought I would bring this to your attention as it was causing me great confusion and much time researching when shopping for a new system and will need to be updated/changed. Also while I have you could you advise me if Dell has a loyalty program available?

A:BIOS power on password

Hello smokeR48,  There is no master password or generator for EliteBooks or ProBooks. This is to inform you that all HP Business Notebooks such as Probooks  or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models infact they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial Number and thecode is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. Please have a look at this link. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/49497-HP-Probook-Elitebook-BIOS-Password-Reset-Utility Replace the BIOS chiphttp://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-Elitebook-8470p-8470w-8570p-8570w-8770w-Programmed-Bios-Chip-No-Password-... Please Contact HP Business Notebook support they should be able to send you a customized SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password.  When talking to the HP rep ask them to escalate your service request.  Hope this helps, for any further queries reply to the post and feel free to join us again  **Click the White Thumbs Up Button on the right to say Thanks**Make it easier for other people to find solutions by marking a Reply 'Accept as Solution' if it solves your problem. Thank You,GBL84I am not an HP Employee
