BIOS password
Hi everybody, I have a Toshiba protege r200 it was stolen from and when I get it back there is a start up password (BIOS password). Just about 5 seconds after I push the button on I can't access to anything. Does anybody have any idea how can I bypass the password? I tried every thing (keydisk/parallel port/usb security key/shortcircuiting the bios chip/removing cmos battery). Please help me.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Usually you can reset the BIOS password by either removing the battery from the mother board for about a minute, or some time there is a jumper marked “RST PWD” or similar on the MB.
You could try this:

BUT I HAVE NOT TESTED THEM…TRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

You might also try contacting Toshiba.
Good Luck

    You will probably have to contact Toshiba and get a master password from them, or get them to send you Bios Update Disc so you can reflash the Bios to reset the password to defaults.  It appears that you have attempted to via jumper and removing the battery so I would contact Toshiba.Tech Support.

    If this is a recovered computer that was stolen, I'd be very careful about using it. Who knows what it may be infected with or even contain illegal material. It may be best to take it to a pro.
