    Do you mean that your BIOS (pre OS boot) password has been changed and lost?

    When you say "she set the HDD/SSD password", do you mean your "Log-on" password?

HDD Master passwords generally disable access to the HDD altogether. I used to be a Toshia technician and if you wanted to get rid of the HDD master Password, you needed to get a new HDD. It is recommended that you take the laptop to your local service repairer for that brand, and they may be able to use a workaround or use a backdoor password, but I wouldn't hold out that hope.

The other option is to get your sister to reset the HDD master password.

My TOSHIBA LAPTOP SAT#L505-S5990 shows HDD#1SSD #1User Password.


Up to my knowledge, you really have some problem here. Is that password yours or did you buy this SSD drive used?
I understand that SSD password only can be removed by a Master password and only provider has accesss to this master password. So if you have a receipt of your purchase, you should contact original provider (i.e. if it's a Samsung drive, with Samsung distribuitor) explan and prove your situation and they should remove tha password with their master password.

Check my answer, actually I've never encountered this situation just remember the case of a friend who bought a used SSD and had this problem

Toshiba nb505 the screen says enter built in hdd/ssd user password


Somehow, the HDD password has been set. Unless you can remember it, you MAY need to replace the HDD to get around this. I have 'bricked' an HDD in the past in this way.

There is a company on the Web that, for a fee, will help you break that password. The fee depends on the size of the drive. However, to get access again, the HDD will have to removed and reinstalled into an empty SATA/IDE port on a 32-bit desktop so their online server can remove the password. Might be easier just replacing the drive...

I GOT A TOSHIBA SATELLITE LAPTOP HOW DO I RESET THE HDD/SSD PASSWORD I BOUGHT IT THIS WAY


I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop. It is impossible to remove a HD/SSD drive password, there are no backdoor passwords and if the Toshiba has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the HD/SSD is password locked then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new HD or SSD, install Windows plus the Toshiba device drivers and programs to get a working laptop.

I got a laptop as a gift and it was working fine but now it is asking me for a HDD/SSD user password and i dont have a password for it is there anyway iam able to bypass it please help me


An HDD/SSD password is located on the HDD itself and cannot be accessed to change it like Operating system passwords can be.

It is at sector level and only manufacturer can advise.May be easier (and cheaper) to replace the HDD.

MY SISTER GAVE ME HER LAPTOP BEFORE SHE WENT TO BOOT CAMP. WHEN I TURN IT ON IT SAYS HDD PASSWORD . PLEASE HELP!!!


Have you already asked your sister on the HDD password that she had set on the laptop before she gave it to you? Only your sister may know it since she was the owner of the laptop before.
