    If this is the system password in the BIOS, and it's still under warranty, follow Frank's advice and send it into the manufacturer, as the fix involves a partial disassembly of the unit, and will void the warranty. If it's not under warrenty, or it's the Window's password, not the BIOS system password, let me know.

    Ok is this the admin password in windows or the system password when you boot it up.
    If this is a Toshiba laptop and it happened this year..
    If it is under warranty, send it in.
    If not, you need to reset your bios using one of two methods..

Do not attempt to short out the jumpers on your own. As simple as it is, you can also kill the board. Also, the RTC battery will not effect the BIOS password. Take it in to the nearest Toshiba ASP center and they will reset the BIOS password as well as update it to the latest BIOS revision to avoid it from happening again UNDER WARRANTY. You do not have to pay for this repair.

How do i restore a toshiba Satellite A215-S5839 back to factory settings but thge hdd has a built in password


You my friend are up the creek without a paddle. How could you forget the Hard Drive Password? Oh I know, it's a stolen laptop. If you're smart enough to set a password on the hard drive, then you're smart enough to remember it. 99% of computers with passwords on the hard drive and the person that has the laptop doesn't know the password, either stole it or bought it hot off the streets. The real owner set the password to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data if it is ever stolen. They might have even set the password remotely once it was stolen. The laptop is useless unless the real owner puts the password in to unlock it.

I have toshiba satellite A215-S5837 but no remember my pasword


if you cant remember your password you must use your recovery disk but this will mean you'll format your hard drive so all your files will be deleted or you could use a program called hdd unlock youll need a computer to do this because laptops only have one docking station for a hard drive to save space if you do have a computer connect your hard rive using a docking station download this program for your hard drive to be usable again http://www.hddunlock.com/download/.

How do i reset or remove build-in HDD user password on a toshiba satelite A215-S5808 laptop


if you are talking about the user password that prompts you when you log in to windows...(and you do not know it ) just reinstall the password...if you know the password and want to remove it ...go to control panel ...user accounts ..press the admin account you are logged in ...and after that click remove password...
But I repeat ..if it is the user password and you do not know it ..and it boots until the password prompt in windows...than the only options is to reinstall ...If you have another user with admin rights on it ..you can remove the other account from user accounts also ...

My Toshiba A215-S5818 Shows up enter password


Hello,

The problem can be due to incorrect power on password prompt. This problem is noticed with some older BIOS versions. The system is looking for a non-existing power-on password.

The only solution for this is to send the system back to Toshiba. They will repair this problem free of cost.

Hello,
I am not sure that the removal of the CMOS battery would erase the passord on boot. Better take it to a Toshiba Certified Service Center.
Hope it helps.
