I have Toshiba C55-B5202 laptop. Yesterday when I turned on It showed Enter Password out of nowhere. To my knowledge it must be BIOS password. I searched for this in google, and I found few people had the same problem with different models of Toshiba laptops. Some people sorted out the problem by using jumpers on the motherboard.
I don't know which jumer to short in my laptop model. I had assembled PCs, so I have no hesitation in opening my laptop .Please help me. I am out of warranty.

For rules don't allow us to help you bypass a password as it's considered hacking, sorry.

You need to remove the CMOS battery, let it sit for 10-15 minutes , then put it back in.
Here's a guide: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=227UWKDfnzQ - that's not the same laptop but the battery should be located in the same place.

Hi itmoba. Thanks for the reply.
Its not hacking. Its servicing. I didn't set password. It came out of firmware fault. I contacted an authorised service centre of Toshiba. They replied that I may have to spend around $200 for thier products fault. Please help me save my laptop. Since I totally own the product I believe it won't be any kinda hacking.
