    Toshiba Notebook BIOS password backdoor 2

    An other way to bypass the Power On Password of a Toshiba Notebook. This method dose not work on all models Known not to work on Tecra 8000

    This is what you need:

    1. Your notebook
    2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
    3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
    4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)

    This is what you have to do:

    1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
    2. Put the disk in drive A:
    3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
    4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
    5. Remove the disk from drive A:
    6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
    7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
    8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
    9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
    10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password.

    It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree.

    Toshiba Notebook BIOS password backdoor 1

    How to make the computer lose the password
    after you did!

    Connect these pins on a DB25 plug to make the dongle:
    1-5-10
    2-11
    3-17
    4-12
    6-16
    7-13
    8-14
    9-15



    get a spare plug and make the links listed above ie link 1-5-10, 2-11 etc.
    then plug it into the port.hope this is clearer.

    A couple of longshots.................

    These may sound a bit off the wall but...:idea:

    Some Toshiba laptop systems will bypass the BIOS password if the left shift key is held down during boot.

    Try using Toshiba or toshiba as the cmos password. (cmos passwords can be case sensitive)

    Many motherboards feature a set of jumpers or dipswitches that will clear the CMOS and wipe all of the custom settings including BIOS passwords. The locations of these jumpers / dipswitches will vary depending on the motherboard manufacturer and ideally you should always refer to the motherboard or computer manufacturers documentation. If the documentation is unavailable, the jumpers/dipswitches can sometimes be found along the edge of the motherboard, next to the CMOS battery, or near the processor. Some manufacturers may label the jumper / dipswitch CLEAR - CLEAR CMOS - CLR - CLRPWD - PASSWD - PASSWORD - PWD. On laptop computers, the dipswitches are usually found under the keyboard or within a compartment at the bottom of the laptop.
    Please remember to unplug and remove the battery from your Laptop and use a grounding strip before reaching into your PC and touching the motherboard. If your laptop has this jumper you can reset the jumper switches.To reset the CMOS Settings/Password, move the jumper to the 2-3 position if it is currently 1-2, or 1-2 if it is currently 2-3, then turn on the system, wait a few seconds, then turn the power off.Unplug................ Now, move the jumper back to the original pins. Then reboot.
