Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra 9100 Notebook ?

I have a tosiba tecra 9100 laptop that when I boot up it ask for a bios password, i bought from a garage sale and noone seems to know the password is there neway i can clear that password and start over without knowing the original password?


Answers :

BIOS passwords on the 9100's can be cleared by using one of them parallel port password removal key - cheap ones are under $10 on eBay (and you can make your own, too!). Don't bother with the CMOS battery - you can unplug it and wait 10 years and it'll still be there :)
If you unplug both the battery and wall jack (DC Power), then open up the laptop, and remove the CMOS battery. Once the CMOS battery is removed with out anything powered push the power button and hold it for about 10-30seconds to perform a power drain on the CMOS this should reset your BIOS, also look to see if there is a BIOS/CMOS reset jumper if there is, place the jumper to reset and plug in some type of power, in order to turn on the computer, then turn the computer off... Reseed the battery, plug into the wall if needed, and then your should be able to get into the BIOS/CMOS with out any problem.
