How do I remove the BIOS password?
Hello! I bought about 30 Toshiba Tecra M2s from a recycler, and while they are nice little machines, a few of them have BIOS passwords in place that prevent them from booting at all. They simply ask for a password when you power them on. BIOS password removal tools do not work because the password prompt appears before the machine even attempts to boot from CD, etc. I've tried removing the battery for 5 minutes, and several other forms of magic suggested by random pages when I Googled the issue. Nothing worked. Unfortunately I'm not very experienced with Toshibas and am therefore pretty clueless about this. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
