You probably found this suggestion, but just in case...
You used to be able to do it by rewiring a parallel connector on some of the Tosh's, but the A100 doesn't seem to have a parallel port!
Hi, does anybody know how to reset the system/bios password on a toshiba A100?
proving to be a difficult one.
cheers for the reply, we spent about 10 minutes looking for C88 on the board can I see it no point c87 and c89 see them fine
I think I ahve the same problem with one of mine in the cupboard. I never did find a solution. All the guides seemed to point to a slightly different model.
I'm pretty sure last time I got locked out of one of our Toshibas there was one of the several CMOS reset utilities on the slightly iffy "Hiren's Boot CD" (google it) that successfully managed to nuke it.. Don't have one handy ATM to set the password then test it on but trial and error worked for me.
Ended up returning some of ours to Toshiba as there is a known fault where the BIOS sets its own password. Something like that anyway. I couldn't find a way to reset the password myself.
It looks like we have a expensive paper weight
