Question about Computers & Internet

Hi, I bought a laptop from a lost and found auction which was for a charitable organization. The operating system is password protected. It doesn't even allow me to format and re-install when I use a windows XP CD to boot the laptop (CF- Y7). Your help will be appreciated thanks :)

Hi, 
Does it have floppy disk drive? If so, try creating a boot disk. Boot from the floppy, then format or re-partition. Then boot from XP CD to install XP.

    Lost password for toshiba L355-S7827


    So this is asking for a password at boot up?? Sounds like the Admin/System password is enabled.

    Try this:
    1. As the computer is booting press F1, F2, or Del to enter CMOS setup.
    2. In CMOS setup when prompted for a password, guess three times until you're giving the code. If after entering the wrong password three times the computer is displaying a 5 to 8 code, as shown in the picture, continue to the next step.
    3. Write down the code and visit Dogbert's BIOS Password Backdoors scripts page to download Python and the free Python scripts to clear many of these types of passwords.

    Hello robyn496
    The disc is normaly delivered with the purchase of the laptop . If you recently bought yours , you could ask the vendor for help .
    Sometimes , it's also possible to get one at the unit manufacturer's site , it depends on the model .
    Otherwise , you will probably need to buy an install disc to try a repair operation . If this still doesn't succeed , you will have to reinstall Windows but all your data will be lost .
    Best regards ,

    I bought this toshiba satellite m20 in an auction. its asking for an administrator password. HOw can i remove the password?


    Is the BIOS asking for a password or is Windows asking for a password? If it's the BIOS then you might never get the password off. Seldom can you remove the password from a laptop's BIOS without already knowing the password. If it's Windows that's asking for the password, then try reinstalling your operating system. This will get rid of the password and anything else that may be lurking around in the computer from the previous owner.

    Computer is password protected and don't know password


    My company offers this service for $50 per computer but I'll tell you how to do it yourself if you're halfway savvy. Download the Microsoft ERD Commander, burn the iso image to a dvd, change the boot sequence on the laptop to boot to cd/dvd first, the ERD commander will install and prompt you which operating system you would like to manipulate. Select your operating system rather than none. A small windows environment will open and you can select locksmith from the start menu. This will allow you to reset all passwords. Reboot while removing the disk, and you're in.
