I Got a Toshiba pro L300 laptop for some reason it came with its own head ache "the bios power on password" which i don't know and i am hoping to pass through it with your help so tell me what to do people and thank you in advance.
oh by the way i tired to remove the cimos battery and reinstoled it the password is still there i also thought of using the loop back method but it ant applicable for this model.
how do i getred of the power on password password then??
Pulling the CMOS battery is the primary way to clear the password, if possible. The only other way I know of is to (if you have a phoenix BIOS) to use a recovery disk for phoenix BIOSs that will erase such a password.
Other than that, it can't be done...for all practical purposes.
I don't know where everyone is getting all these notebooks with passwords already on them...this seems to be a suddenly common problem.
