    It'll clear if you take the little battery off the motherboard for a minute or so. Problem is it's not exactly a walk in the park to get to it - will probably require you disassembling the laptop unless there's a cover on the underside of the laptop which reveals it when you take it off (like in this pic: media.wiley.com/Lux…jpg)

    Not the laptop battery itself - the CMOS battery: ]like this one

    also..
    this article: technibble.com/how…rd/
    lists some "backdoor" passwords. I assume they are some sort of master passwords so they could be worth a shot before taking anything apart.

    edit2: been doing some reading on sites I found via a google search and some people seem to be saying you need to contact Toshiba themselves and the password can't be removed. I thought it might be clear-able but then again maybe not.. years ago, my Dad had a work laptop which got locked down with a BIOS password and it was only removable by getting a code from tech support. Maybe a similar security system is used by Toshiba?

    You cant, it needs to be done by Toshiba.

    This happened to my old laptop. I took it to a pc shop, cost me £90.

    It was also a toshiba, l30.

    I know theres some chips you can short on the mainboard to clear bios just thought someone mght know.

    Hey!! boring person find something better to do,

    I care for your response why? hahahahah

    :thumbsup:

    Have you tried any of the suggested solutions yet?

    So, so, many times I post on PC help threads and we never hear back from the OP about whether they got it sorted or not.

    Also, I might add that to be a manager of an IT team you don't need to be an IT genius. My neighbour manages some team of council IT people but it by no means a computer expert! Also, see The IT Crowd - perfect example :-D
