When I press F2 to enter setup I am prompted to enter a password, but I forgot it. How can I remove it so I can go into setup?


Try removing the CMOS battery which might allow setup to be entered without a password.

Try googling instructions to reset the bios. I remember seeing some videos about this on Youtube.

Access my password


If it's your windows password you've forgot, this situation is recoverable. You need to make a PASSWORD RESET DISK, which you will have to google for on the internet. You will probably require your Windows COA 25 character code from the underside of your laptop/back of PC. Instructions from MicroSoft are here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/create-password-reset-disk#1TC=windows-vista
That was for Vista but the procedure is similar for XP/7/8 I believe.
Obviously you will have to borrow another computer with similar OS OR get a friend to make you one.Once done, put in CDROM and reboot (set reboot frm CDROM in BIOS if necessary). BIOS is got by pressing F1 or F2 or other key (google it) depending on your model. Good Luck

Notebook only goes to f2 or f12 wont boot


If you can't get passed the F2, F12 then maybe the keys are disabled.. Windows does this sometimes. To release just hit "F".. if that doesn't do the trick then probably drive is corrupt..
You will need to restore using restore disc if you have one.

When i boot up my laptop and press f2 it asks me for a password. i forgot it. what can i do?


That could be the BIOS password. If you have any idea who could have set it up ask them. If not you have to ask hp to reset it. NOTE: This service is not covered under the standard warranty. It's a high possibility that they will charge you. The BIOS is a kind of software and hard ware at the same time. Its a software because it provides instruction to the devices to your notebook. (hard drive, processors etc). It is also a hard ware because its embedded to the motherboard. So to reset the Bios password. they will replace this part

Forgot password to toshiba with vista operating system


Is it the windows password? Or did he set the bios password for booting up? If it is just the logon for windows, then the F2 setup won't be able to touch it. You can go here to fix the windows password:
