I put a bios password in a toshiba satellite laptop A300 - 20C. I want to reset it. Does anyone know how to do that?
According to the Toshiba website you need a piece of software, usually pre-installed, called Toshiba Assist. the BIOS password is managed from the security tab within that software.
it's so easy!!! i contact with Toshiba Customer Support and gave me those instructions:
When the system start
press F2 get inside the bios sytem, go to Security field and then to set a password. Set the password that already use then press Enter and press Enter 2 times again. The password now has been disabled from the laptop.
It is ok now! i solve the problem!
thanks for your interest!
Remove the battery
Remove the memory slot cover
Remove the memory
Look for a small '◄ ►' shaped area and short it against the case.
This method is not clearing bios password even after shorting ◄ ► shaped area . can you guide me further ? Do you have to turn power on when you are shorting this area or you have to do without turning on laptop.
Thanks in advance
Im having same problem with my toshiba equium a200, trying to find the 'W' underneath the RAM slots but cant find it. does anyone have a picture of what im looking for?, would be much much appreciated.
I am also having this problem with my A200 after updating the bios from toshiba website it will no longer accept my user password no matter how I boot. When I enter my regular password it always says incorrect. I can not find the W. Please be specific where it is or provide diagram. Kind thanks

Old post I know!But this worked a treat for me Tosh-Sat Pro A300! Cant believe Toshiba wanted £120 to fix it..Cheers Guys!
Yeah an old post, but just to add to it... Leave the battery in (with some charge) it didn't work with the battery out. My two connectors were hiding under a sticker!
Once I shorted them together with a screwdriver with the battery in, it worked a dream.
Most laptops have this feature under the RAM slot... just to make note ;-)
