How can i unlock poweron password for toshiba A300?

As you describe your problem I can see that your laptop ask for password just in the begining, in black screen so you need a bios password. That's diferent from the password that sometimes windows ask to (usually user - password).
Well you have to open the case of the laptop and locate a small circle battery, this is the bios battery. Eject this battery and the laptop's battery and unplug the power cord. Try 2-3 times to power up the laptop (without batteries or power supply, just for the capasitors to discharge). Wait 5 minutes. After that plug in again the bios battery, the main battery and the power supply. Start up your laptop. Just before Windows logo comes up hit del (or F2) repeatly in order to get in to bios settings. Find the command "load bios default" and hit enter. Adjust the date and time and any other settings you wish (boot order e.t.c.). Save the changes and reboot. As you can see you are ready.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Computer has been working fine. Now all of a

When system boots press the key to get into BIOS. Usually it is 'Del' Key. Once you get into BIOS, if not asking a password, get into admin menu and set the password option disabled.
If asking for a password while you get in to BIOS and you dont know the password, the only option is to reset the BIOS.
To reset BIOS u've to remove the back cover and remove and re-insert the CMOS battery while the laptop is powered off. After that, power on the laptop and set the bios to normal setting, especially the time. This wont harm any of your data.
Please come back and vote for me if this finds helpful for you. Thnx

There is a jumper located on your motherboard that you need to use to reset your bios password. You can generally find this information in the manual that came with the notebook. If you don't have the manual you'll need to go to the toshiba website.

Please note that resetting a jumper on a motherboard is not the easiest thing to do on a notebook computer. You're talking about taking apart and putting on eback together. Be very careful not to let any static electricity hit the machine.

Black screen after windows xp screen nothing else

Sometimes the function keys get depressed by accident and it takes away your display. Press the FN+F5 and FN+F6 three times each and see if your display comes back on.

Laptop died!!!

THe power controller in a laptop manages both AC power and battery. A laptop can power on without a battery as long as it is connected to the charger. That's because both battery and AC power have same power specifications. If the laptop fails to power from AC charger, then you may have an internal hardware failure. If no LED's flash, no light and no noise is made when you connect the charger, the problem is most likely to be a simple one, a faulty connector or something like. First of all, please specify me, what laptop model you have, and, exactly, what does it do when you connect the AC charger.
