Default BIOS passwords

Manufacturers build "safety backdoor passwords" into the chips. Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX. Toshiba's known backdoor password is toshiba. Not sure, however, if these are case sensitive. This may save you from having to pull the battery, which should also work to reset the password.
