Flipping great! can't lock down bios
Just got in some Toshiba Satellite Pro C850-10V's for students, and to cut a long story short I've discovered you cannot stop someone (students) from being able to set a power on password in the bios unless you set one of your own. Toshiba support confirm this not to be a bug, but just the way it is (great!). Yes we can set one of our own, but the teachers have to know / remember and not disclose what it is and type it in each time the a student powers the laptop on (nightmare!). So, I'm looking at ways to reset the bios if we leave it open, if anyone has some trusted methods?? I've tried removing the CMOS battery for a minute and that didn't work (currently trying for a longer time to see if that works). Toshiba support unsurprisingly won't let on to any method other than sending it back to them (plus cash) for a reset. Any help greatly received as these laptops needed to be ready yesterday.
