Forgot code to open up computer


LOL, what code? If you're talking about the password, which password? The Bios Password, the Hard Drive Password or the Windows User Account Password? Which Operating System? If it's the hard drive password, I'd bet my house you either stole the laptop or bought it hot from someone. If you're not smart enough to remember the password, then you're definitely not smart enough to know how to set a password on the hard drive.

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

Call barring has been activated i dont know what is the barring password


Call Barring is a network feature. The Password for this feature is set by network. So don't need to worry. Just call your Network Service providers and ask them for the code, they will first authenticate you and will give you your code in return.
Note: Don't get spammed by someone telling you he can give you the code.

My laptop turned off and now its asking for a primary user hdd password witch i dont have how do i unlock it?


You have to unlock the hard drive from within BIOS if you don't want to see that screen again. However, if you don't know that password then the laptop is not going to usable by you. Normally this prevents access to a computer in case someone steals it, since the thief won't know the hdd password and can't unlock it to access any data.

Wen i turn it on it is asking for password and i dont know it what do i do


Does it ask for a password Immediately when you turn it on? (CMOS password) or does windows boot up and then ask for both a username and password?

If the first, and you don't know what your password is, you can try clearing the CMOS by pulling the battery from the motherboard.

If it's a windows password, you or someone else created a password for it. Try just clicking OK, or enter Administrator as the username and leave password blank. Otherwise you may have to reset using ultimate boot CD.

I bought the toshiba computer today and it was the display model but when I go to turn it on it is asking for a password and have no clue what it is


Sounds like some clown at the place you bought it from password protected it.People play on those computers and someone enabled the password protect.The business you bought it from will need to get it removed for you.Next time you post,include your computer name ,model ,and operating system.There are a few ways around password protection,but we need to know what you have for an OS to be able to help.

Blank screen on desktop (dell inspiron 530s); requesting a password.


Someone has turned on the BIOS password on you and therefore the PC will not let you boot up unless you enter the correct password. The problem is you cannot turn off the password option unless you know the password. I would start by asking other people who had access to you computer what they set the password to. If nobody comes clean, then you will have to call Dell Tech Support to get them to reset the password for you. They will give you a master BIOS password to override the one set and turn off the option.
