Bios password The bios password was lost. No removable cmos battery. Do you know how I can dump the bios to reset pass?


Answers :

When I was doing some research on my mysterious BIOS password problem with my Toshiba.
\015\012
\015\012Long story short, Toshiba is aware of the problem and has released\015\012version 2.20 of the BIOS software which states that they have "Added a\015\012workaround for a BIOS password anomaly."
\015\012
\015\012I know this is not the forum to discuss this stuff but felt compelled\015\012after the many hours of frustration, diconnects and\015\012name-rank-and-serial-number talk with Toshiba Support and Toshiba\015\012Customer Service.
\015\012
\015\012Bottom line is that depending on who you talk to a Toshiba or Toshiba\015\012Customer Service, they may or may not cover the up to $200 charge for\015\012removing a BIOS password..."Toshiba does not warranty software issues".\015\012If you have this problem just be persistant until you get ahold of\015\012someone who is aware that the problem is real and who will listen. And\015\012not that morron who told me "that there is no way a BIOS password can\015\012be set without someone setting it"...idiot. They will send an\015\012"exception code" to your service provider to do the work under\015\012warranty...I mean how can they not if they're aware the problem exist\015\012and post a fix on their own website.
\015\012
\015\012I just got my lab top back from my Service Provider for the second time\015\012for this problem so I don't have many hours running it to see if it\015\012happens again...I've got my fingers crossed. The first time was in July\015\012'06 and the updated software didn't come out until Sept'06. So although\015\012Toshiba gave me an exception to remove the BIOS password, the software\015\012was still corrupt and it happened again in Nov '06.
