YOU NEED TO GET INTO THE C-MODE SETUP TO DELETE ANY PASSWORD AND USER NAME. go to www.toshiba.com look for the support and go there. the fee they charge may be a whole lot less that bringing it to a shop.

BUT--this is a tricky issue..you need to contact toshiba as to the keys to get into C-Mode setup to do this.

the message referes to the fact that a removable drive (CD ) or ( mass storage device) was taken out before the computer could close out that program properly. It is looking for it to close it right.

How can I get my login password for windows


I take it you are running Windows Vista Home Basic? Do you have more than the one account on it that can download programs?If the answer to both is yes, then try this:
1.Download and install ophcrack with recommended settings.
2. Run the ophcrack program and it will scan your laptop for all Windows user accounts.
3. The Windows user names will appear in the top region of the screen once the search is complete.
4. Click on the user name you desire to recover a password for. Your password will be extracted and displayed in the "NT Pwd" column on the right side of the screen next to your user name.
5. WRITE THE PASSWORD DOWN.
6. Restart the computer through the Start menu.
7. Login to the account you just recovered the password for.

I can't remember my Toshiba L300 setup password to enable me boot from CD.


There is usually a couple of pads underneath the laptop that will short out the BIOS battery which will reset the BIOS settings.

  • Disconnect the AC and remove the battery
  • Remove the memory
  • Peel back the black plastic film underneath but don't remove it entirely
  • Attach a piece of adhesive tape on the underside
  • Insert a memory stick
  • Stick the tape down on the case
  • You now have access to the two shorting pads named B500
  • Reconnect the AC and short out these pads.
  • Power on the laptop with these pads shorted out until the Toshiba logo disappears
  • Remove the AC and remove the memory stick
  • Remove the tape and replace the black plastic film
  • Reinstall all the memory
  • Replace the battery and the AC
This should have wiped out the BIOS passwords. Use enter to get into the password protected areas.

When i type in my password to unlock computer it says user name and password is incorrect


The user name or password is incorrect. Verify that CAPS LOCK is not on, and then retype the current user name and password. Or you must be trying a wrong password.

Try reseting password using boot disk

I have a toshiba satellie pro (A105), I forgot my password, now I want to restore to factory settings (im order not to loose the genuinity of my windows)..... I dont have any recovery CD, what do I do?


Hi,

If you have Windows XP press CTRL+ALT+DEL at the login screen.
A new login screen will appear. Login using Username: Administrator and Password: password
This will log you into the Admin account.
You can then go to the user account in the control panel and reset the password for your user account.

Hope this helps!

Hi when i turn on my laptop it powers up then screen goes black ,in the top left hand corner it says password there is a horiizontal little line flashing and it wont let me type in the password,please...


Sounds like the BIOS password has been set to prevent unauthorized usage. If you don't know the password, you can't use the computer and it can't be reset except by Toshiba.
