I currently have a Toshiba Satellite p205d-s7439 and I set a bios password a while back and can't remember it. I am running Windows Vista 64bit and I tried using the debug command in the command prompt and still no change. Is there a CMOS battery I can remove or a jumper I could take out to reset it?

  • You would have to take the CMOS battery out. This will also reset all of the other BIOS settings, but you won't lose any other data. – MoonRunestar Sep 25 '17 at 15:19

  • You'd have to find out what motherboard is being used in the laptop. Thanks to OEMs using specialised motherboards and/or not filling out the details of the motherboard for utilities like CPU-Z to retrieve, this might prove difficult unless you're willing to open up the laptop. – MoonRunestar Sep 25 '17 at 15:23
