    Most modern Toshiba satellite laptops would require you to contact Toshiba Customer support for the information needed, and their web site is not available tonight to contact that way. Unsure if your model is old enough to allow one of the other methods shown on Youtube to work.

    new pc's TPM/UEFI fitted out the reset jumper is gone by law, about 2012 onward.
    old PCs had jumper , PWreset
    or you pull the coin cell, all old PCs did that. 1 way or the other,... and is covered in the manual ever like RTM? to see what it says.
    toshiba show no service manual, only a lame users manual.
    but fails to even discuss the lost pw issues.
    that means they dont want you to do that.
    2012 is the years this began.
    your only options are pull an pry.
    pull the battery main
    pull the AC pack
    pull the RTC coin cell ,
    push power button for 30 seconds
    not put all that back and pray it works.

    or option 2 join their forum
    and ask them now to reset it.
    most newer PCs 2012 they make you prove you own it. New laws on that.

    if you see no PW reset jumper, then there is none. as is normal now.

SOURCE: Reset BIOS password at Toshiba 4030 CDS

If the password is stored in the BIOS and not on an EEPROM chip then you can remove the BIOS battery and wait for 1/2+ hour before inserting the battery back in. If you don't want to wait then short out the battery contacts on the motherboard. The BIOS settings will now be set to the factory default.
Alternately some laptops allow you to select an alternate boot up device by pressing the F12 key as you power up.

How to reset toshiba bios on my p845-4200 satilite

BIOS password or Windows password? If it is the BIOS password, see if there is a pin sized hole in the bottom of the laptop. If so, pressing the pinhole with an object such as a paperclip will clear CMOS and reset the BIOS password. If you don't have one of these holes, the only other option is temporarily removing the CMOS battery from the motherboard.

If you are referring to your Windows password, you can use a utility called OPHcrack to brute force/dictionary attack your password. See the website for more details.

How to reset cmoss password in toshiba satelite A135-S2276 service manual

You can try some BIOS hacks, just google them. Or you can try and take your laptop apart (use the manual), locate the BIOS battery, take it out and leave it for 5-10 minutes and the password should be reset either to default or nothing.

I have forget my bios password please help me toshiba satelite pro M10

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.

If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.

If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.

If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

I have toshiba satelite model A 135- S2266. after instaling Nokia Software, my laptop totaly was freezed and shutdown. when i tried put On , everything was blank and looking for bios pasword Phoenix Bios...

To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.
