Hi

I had recently purchased a toshiba 2590 cdt at an online auction for $50. But when i booted it up after showing a toshiba sign it asks for a password. I have tried various backdoor passwords but none worked. Could you please help me?
The specifications are: 400MHZ Celeron CPU, 192mb sdram (maximmum ram installed), cdrom/floppy drive,6.4 gig hd,unknown os.

You need to take out motherboard battery.
When you took it out all bios settings will be lost. And password will be deleted.

I have already tried that. I had left it out for 2 whole days and it still asked for a password.

Is this a laptop? If so, there are two batteries you need to remove, one is the large laptop batter and the other is a small battery that saves the BIOS information/password. You'll also need to remove the power cord, and it helps to press the power button down for four seconds or so. You won't need to wait any longer, at this point you can plug everything back in.

I haven't heard of a dongle for toshiba laptops but maybe there is i'll check. Any way today i decided to explore my laptop more in depth and i found out that there was no hard drive installed. I am going to buy a hdd off ebay but i was wondering if the laptop was asking for a password because it has no hdd or because of the bios?
