What if computer will not take password to your account


If you forgot your BIOS password. see this... http://www.wikihow.com/Break-a-BIOS-Password
If you forgot your windows Account Login password, the following page is a good description of your choices... http://pcsupport.about.com/od/tipstricks/tp/find-lost-windows-passwords.htm
Also, check out... http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/
If the above does not work, and you have important files that you don't want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. At least you may not lose you files.
Good luck

I am looking for my bios password on my toshiba deskstop it was locked i do not have password harddrive password is locked


You're definitely out of luck if there is a Password on the Hard Drive. The only way you can get the system to ever work again is to get that someone that put the password on the hard drive to take it off.

99% of the time if a computer has a Password on the hard drive and the person it possession of the computer does not know the password, it's a stolen computer. The original owner put the password lock on it to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data if it is stolen.

Locked password


Locked Password where? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows User Account (userid) Password? And which operating system?

If it's the Bios Password, then you will need to remove the CMOS Battery and let the computer sit for a couple of hours. Then put the battery back in and try rebooting. You'll have to go back into the BIOS or Setup to put the correct date and time in but the password should be gone from memory.

If it's the Hard Drive Password, you're kinda out of luck. Hard drives are locked 99% of the time when the computer is stolen. The original owner either locked it while he had possession of it or he could have locked it remotely when it was stolen to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The only way around it is to have the original put the password in, or Purchase a new hard drive to put in the computer, reload the operating system, reload the drivers and reload application programs.

If it's the Windows Password for User Account turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key until you see the SAFE MODE Option. Take the Safe Mode option to boot the computer. When it comes to the login screen it will show you the Administrator account and the Account for which you forgot or don't know the password. Log into the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it). When windows desktop comes up click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When the User Accounts window opens up click on the User Account for which you forgot the password then select Remove Password. Reboot the machine

How do i remove the harddrive


Hi,

What you will do is turn the case around and loosen the two case screws on the right side of the back case. Then slip off the side panel. Inside you will probably find a casing that the hard drive is sitting in, sometimes it's facing you , aometimes it not. If it's not, there is a lever that you can pull to release the casing with the hard drive in it. Then there will be a couple of screws on the side of the casing that need to be taken out to remove the drive completely. Opps, almost forgot, you'll have a cable that comes from the back of the hard drive that goes to the motherboard, You only need to remove the side that's connected to the hard drive, and your done. Reverse these instructions in order to put in a new drive.

Good Luck

Laptop HDD is now locked


The hard drive password is setup from the BIOS configuration.
To remove the password you need to go into the BIOS configuration and you need to get the password from your brother.
There are no backdoor passwords, if you cannot get the password or guess the password then you need a new hard disk. If he has also set a BIOS password (you need this to get into the BIOS configuration), otherwise he owes you a new computer.
