Question BIOS PASSWORD LOCKUP

I HAVE A TOSHIBA SATELLITE U205-S5067 WHICH ONE GOOD DAY UPON BEING TURNED ON REQUESTED A PASSWORD:_ SINCE I HAVE NEVER USED A PASSWORD ON THIS LAPTOP THE CONTRAPTION HAS BECOME A PAPERWEIGHT!! DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHAT TO DO TO GET IT OPERATIONAL AGAIN?

Do not write in all caps. It is a form of yelling. We will get to you in time if you are simply frustrated.

Do you know how that password got on there? Did you let a friend use it?

This may help:

If he's not used to opening the laptop case, getting at the battery will be hard. The YouTube link I provided is an easier way.

Yeah, just change the jumpers for the bios reset and leave it changed for like half a minute and switch the jumper back.

Easy fix :P
