If the bios already has a password on it then it will not let you boot the computer without you putting it in. It sounds like you are already booted up and into the bios, if that is true don't set a bios password.
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
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.
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.
You didn't say if this is a power on password or a windows password. If you system boot normally and shows a windows splash screen before asking for a password, it is a windows password. If it never gets that far, it is a power on password. In either case, It would not be wise for anyone here to advise you on removing the password. This is because of the large numbers of laptops stolen each year. If you know someone who is a computer techie, they might be able to help. Good luck
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.
