Satellite U400 - Reset BIOS password
Posted: 22-Feb-2009 19:14
 
Hi,

Is it possible to reset the BIOS password on my notebook Toshiba Satellite U400?

My friend have changed my password in BIOS. And unfortunately he has forgotten it.

Any ideas?

P.S.: I don't want to disassembly my notebook and clear CMOS settings by removing the CMOS battery...

Hi!

The BIOS password can only be reset from an ASP.
Sorry but this is the only way.

On the Toshiba website you can search for an ASP:
http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com => Support & Downloads => Find an authorized service provider

Bye

Hi!

As far as I know this is not include in warranty because this problem is caused of the user and not the manufacture.

Bye
