Help with Bios password on laptop
I have an old laptop which I am going to give to a young lad in Turkey but in the process of tyding it up ie deleting all except win98.
When I start to boot the laptop I have to put in a password it then accepts the password and continues to boot and load win98.
What I want to do is eliminate the need for the password at `boot` and the new owner can set a password for windows if he wishes.
I can get access to the BIOS and have found the box for `password` below that the word `registered` and then a blank part which is presumably where my current password is.
Anyone know how to eliminate the ols password?

OK, you just saved me the job of digging old some old Toshiba workshop manuals!

Had to do this a few times with IBM's and Toshiba's but not for a few years. Seem to recall there is somewhere in the Toshiba BIOS menu that lets you change BIOS/HDD passwords, as long as you have the current ones. How did you do it?

Not 100% sure but I got into the BIOs as I had the password, but at that point was reluctant to mess around, so my son came in and took it out in 2 seconds..and that was that. Apparently you can disconnect the bios battery for 20 minutes and that takes it out, but sounded a bit dodgy for me.
You got any links for any games for win98 as I will put a few on for him before I get the laptop to him, I doubt if he will get internet connection
