How can I unlock the BIOS on a late model Toshiba Satellite Laptop - there is no parallel port on this notebook. I actually asked this question before, and was referred to an e-bay USB Unlock device, they were running about $188 and I ordered it for the last Toshiba I ran across like this, it worked, but I can't find the guy who bought it and I can't find the e-bay auction anymore, can anyone point me in the right direction?? HELP!! This is like the 3rd laptop I have run across like this.
When he came to me he wanted me to change the BIOS Password for him, I told him I was not comfortable doing that, so he took it home and attempted it himself, NOW he is locked out of the computer and Toshiba wants too much money from him to fix it. Warranty has expired. I have it apart but cannot find the CMOS Battery, which many times if it is removed when you put it back the BIOS password is no longer required, but I cannot find any type of Battery inside this notebook. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
