locked BIOS, and forgoted a password
Hi, my lapotop is Toshiba Satellite C870-17L, I locked BIOS, and forgoted a password. Does anyone know how unlock it?
Is this a good question?
Try the password three times, when a dialog pops up with a code, enter it here...
Pulling batteries and looking for CMOS reset jumpers on modern laptops doesn't work in the cases I've seen.
Note, if the drive is password protected (BIOS level), that password is stored on a chip on the drive. this is to protect stolen drives. And in that case, you'll have to shop it off to the drive manufacturer to be unlocked.
