Bios password on toshiba


Some Toshiba laptops come with a system BIOS password, making anyone without the password unable to get past the BIOS screen at system startup. This is a strong security measure, as it renders a stolen computer useless unless the password is known. If you have a Toshiba laptop and want to change the BIOS password, you can quickly do it.

1. Power on the computer while holding down the "Esc" key. Enter your current password when prompted and press "Enter."
2. Press "F1" to enter the BIOS setup menu. Highlight "REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your password and press "Enter."
3. Restart the computer while holding "Esc" and hit "F1" again to enter the BIOS menu. Highlight "NOT REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your new password and press "Enter." Type the password again for verification and hit "Enter." Press "End" to save the changes, and "Y" to exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I cannot unlock it


What's your problem?
Can't get into the PC without the password or anything else.
If you lost the password, i think i can help you.
Just hit the set up key as your machineboots up, usually, F2-F3 or F8. Go to safe mode using the up-down arrowsand where it says set/change password, simply hit the enter button, enter a newpassword in and close, using the save function. You can now use that new password and arenow officially the administrator! Or else, you need some Windows passwordreset program to help you do that job.

After boot, appears ENTER PRIMARY MASTER HDD USER Password i need the password @ solution to boot up my lappy... thanks


How Do I Change the Primary Master HDD User Password?

Prior to loading an operating system, your computer will first execute the BIOS program. The BIOS has an extra password feature, called the hard disk drive (HDD) user password, that can't be bypassed and provides a layer of defense to keep your data secure. To change an existing HDD user password you will have to load the BIOS menu, which is only accessible during the computer's operating system reboot procedure.

Instructions

1. Close any windows that are currently open on your computer. Eject any discs inserted into the optical drive and disconnect any peripheral USB devices.

2. Open the "Start" menu and select "Shut Down." Turn on your computer once the operating system finishes shutting down.

3. Press the key your computer uses to load the BIOS menu. For example, with Dell computers tap "F2" when the "Press F2 for Setup" option appears. Press the "Access IBM" key on IBM laptops or "F10" on HP desktops.

4. Navigate to the BIOS tab that contains the HDD password option, which will usually be the "Security" tab. Some computer manufactures instead include the password option in the "Advanced" tab.

5. Scroll down to the option labeled either "User Password" or "BIOS lock" and hit "Enter." Type the current master HDD user password when the prompt appears and press "Enter."

6. Input a new HDD user password and hit "Enter" again. Navigate to the BIOS tab labeled "Exit" or something similar.

7. Move over to the "Save and Exit" entry and press "Enter." Select "Yes" and tap "Enter."

If there is a cancel button with the password prompt, hit cancel without entering a password, or hit enter without entering a password. Sometimes if there was a password, even though there may not be a password currently, the system will still prompt for one, if you enter a password then it locks. The other things you can try is: At start up, hit the F8 key and go into safe mode, log on under the administrator and clear any user passwords in the user accounts. You can also try, at start up, entering the bios or utility set up and check to see if the bios password setting is enabled, then disable it. Rarely, but on occasion, a hard drive will fail and cause the password prompt. If this is the case, then the hard drive will need to be replaced.
