Re: HDD password for Toshiba Satellite 1400
You get 3 attempts,if after which you have'nt got it right you need to shut it down and try again. But the easiest way is to contact Toshiba,Because if the laptop is genuinely yours you would have registered it when you bought it!!, if you did'nt then your stuck in a sticky place,like when Sticky the stick insect got stuck on a sticky bun!! Basically you will have to prove that you are the rightful owner i.e. Proof of purchase

The BIOS and Supervisor passwords cannot be removed or changed unless
you know the existing password(s). If you forget your BIOS or Supervisor
password, you will have to have the password removed by a Toshiba
Authorized Service Provider
If you get prompted for the HDD password when turning on the computer, and you do not know it you will need to call Toshiba support. Circumventing an HDD password is not an easy task.
Also there where Toshiba laptops, model 6100, that when the user was suddenly prompted for the HDD password Toshiba replaced the HDD under warranty.

1800 series is an older Tosh laptop..and unfortunately there isnt an easy way to reset it. Since I have a Tosh laptop also, I was more than just casually interested in your dilemma..what I found is that you have to get whats called a loopback adapter and attach to the parellel port and start it up. The loopback is altered so that certain pins are shorted across(not as bad as it sounds) so that the BIOS resets.
