How Do I Reset BIOS Password On Toshiba E45W-C4200X?

Specs: N/A, N/A
I have a laptop that I am trying to help a family member get back into since they forgot their BIOS password (boot) but I can not locate the jumper pins to reset it.

I've also tried letting it sit off the power cord for a few days (no cmos battery and internal battery is dead), holding down the shift key on boot, and using TOSHIBA/Toshiba/toshiba as an override password without any luck.

Am I missing something?

The whole point of passwords is to protect something. If they could be easily changed they wouldn't be very effective.

Take your computer to a Toshiba authorized dealer and ask if they can reset the password. They may ask you to prove ownership of the computer.

Laptop security is much more stringent than desktop security. The methods you tried will generally work on a desktop but they will NOT work on a laptop. What exactly is displayed on the screen when you boot the laptop?
