Hi Elim, I don't think its a password, sounds like you didn't activate Windows. Windows only gives you 30 days to activate it then you have to call Microsoft and they will give you the activation code.Good Luck.

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

i think the password you are mentioning is of bios password right.

boot up password.

just do the following settings.
either remove the battery.(sometimes will not work)

short jumper pins on motherboard for resetting or CLEAR CMOS. then your password and all other settings in boot will be cleared.

just after that you can reboot and logon to pc

My 13 year old has passworded her lap top and now cant remember the passwords how can i unlock this for her any help would be great dee


Try holding CTRL ALT DELETE key combination three times when you get the login screen.

This should open a login box.

Enter user : Administrator and blank password.

If this does not work, you usually need to have windows reinstalled when you lose the password.

I have two Toshiba lap tops, I had the same problems which you have, tell you the truth, I took them to Bevely Hills factory warranty shop changed the mother board and then after eight months, I had some other problems, total five times in the repaire shop and finally passed the warranty. It is totally gone.

I know this can not help you at all, remember four years ago, Toshiba been suit, finally I got two years factory warranty for my lap tops, I wasted too much of my time to solve the problems but both lap top I can not use anymore,
