    Toshiba notebook BIOS password

    For those who forget their Toshiba notebook BIOS password...
    Found the following in the web and posted before I forget again.

    The one and only way to bypass the Power On BIOS password
    of a Toshiba Notebook. This method works on all models.

    This is what you need:

    1. Your notebook
    2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
    3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
    4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)

    This is what you have to do:

    1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
    2. Put the disk in drive A:
    3. Change the first five bytes of sector 2 (boot sector is sector 1) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
    4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
    5. Remove the disk from drive A:
    6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
    7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
    8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
    9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
    10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password.
