Hello! On your model, (and most newer models of Toshiba laptop) the BIOS and power on password ***** be cleared using the jumper on the bottom of the machine, see following link for instructions!

Please let me know if you have any further questions, and don't forget to accept and rate! :)

The link works fine from here, are you sure you do not have a virus?

Expert:  Chris Baxter replied 1 year ago.

You could try also renewing your DHCP by restarting your seems you either are being blocked by a network administrator or you reside in a country that is blocked. If that I would assume is your IP address there, I think that is probably the issue!

This jumper

Really sorry, but cannote locate on portege mobo can you enlarge or advise where to look?
seems near memory?

Expert:  Chris Baxter replied 1 year ago.

It would be near the Mobo battery, likely on the back side. It will be as in the picture I linked, (which is for shorting manually with a flat head screwdriver, or it will be 3pins with a jumper across them. May have a printed label on the MOBO near it "CLR" or "CLEAR BIOS" or any variation between. I will see if I can get you a better picture.

Computer completely disassembled no sign clear ... or any other suggestions found near the battery or anything else !
Case is not solved and you didn't brought me a solution ! Why then billed me 36 € for an unsolved solution ?
Expert:  Chris Baxter replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry but if you cannot find one, it is possible your model of mobo does not have the pin. There are two other solutions that could be possible, one requires you to have the computer partially apart as it is going to require jumping the pins. The second is a program. Try the program first if possible, (understandably putting the computer back together can be a pain in the behind!) Let me know if you have other questions!

The portable doesnt want to boot on anything before I give a pasword ! ! !
What's your other proposal
thks rgds
Expert:  Chris Baxter replied 1 year ago.

The only remaining solution is to jumper the printer port (short the printer port) and force reset via the pin method described above and in the following link:

This may not work with the printer model you have, and typically the pin I spoke of is found under some plastic that would be required to be peeled back to see the pin, (most computers have this under the RAM chips, under a bit of mylar, (at least most Toshibas do).
