Re: there is a password when i open thmy laptop..
If the password comes up after the computer has been turned on, gotten to the desktop, then you close the lid and the computer goes on standby and asks for a password when you open the lid. This is a password set in the screensaver section. Power the laptop off by holding the power button until the computer shuts off. Then turn it back on. Once the desktop loads go into your screensaver options and disable password on resume.

Stuck process. Use Ctrl-Alt-Del to see what is not responding, kill the process.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.
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
Any authorized toshiba dealer can remove the password for you (or should be able to) and some will do it for free, but you must take the unit in. If you cannot find one locally, you can ship the unit to me, and I will remove the password for $25. You must pay shipping.
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.
This is a tricky one because the BIOS password is made to be the hardest password on a computer to break. Some manufacturers allow you to enter BIOS without the BIOS password but most do not. Here are some troubleshooting methods starting with the easiest and moving on to the hardest.
To enter BIOS hit the F2 key repeatedly as
the computer boots up. You should enter BIOS after the first loading
screen. If this does not send you into BIOS, try the ESC, DEL, and F1 keys. Once in
BIOS find where you can set the password and reset it or enter a blank
password as your new password.
If you can't access BIOS or are
prompted for a password once you enter BIOS, try the following methods
to flush the BIOS password cache: 1. Contact your manufacturer's support and ask if they have a backdoor BIOS password that they will allow you to use. This works to allow you to enter that password instead of your own and easily fixes the whole problem, but not all companies will tell you their password. You can also do a google search for your manufacturer's backdoor BIOS password since many of them have been discovered. 2.
Send your laptop to your manufacturer to have them reset the password manually,
although this takes an undisclosed amount of time and they will often make you pay a fee if you are not under warranty. 3. If you don't want to pay your manufacturer, open
your laptop and locate the motherboard. On the motherboard there is a
CMOS battery, if you don't know where this is use your PC manual. Remove
the CMOS battery for an hour and then place it back on the motherboard. This
should reset the password. After this turn on your computer and enter BIOS. This will reset all your BIOS settings so it may take a
few minutes to open. After it is open, just exit BIOS and everything
should be working properly. Just be very careful when opening the laptop and handling the CMOS battery because you can severely damage your laptop if you don't handle it properly.
