A usb keyboard will do the trick but you have to start the laptop with the keyboard plugged in, you can use that to activate the on screen keyboard if you desire until you work out what is wrong with the laptop keyboard and if you need to replace it

Good luck

How t master reset a toshiba satellite pro 420 cdt


Which Password? Bios Password? Hard Drive Password? Windows Welcom Screen User Logon Password?

Which Operating System? Windows XP? Windows Vista? Windows 7?

OK, if you are running Windows 7, Microsoft tightenedsecurity on it so you've got to have a password reset disk which 99% of thepeople who own laptops with windows 7 fail to do. It should be one of thefirst things you do when you buy the laptop. Otherwise, you're faced withreinstalling the Operating System or possibly doing a System Recovery.

If you're on Windows XP or Vista try this:

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on andimmediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see the Safe Modeoption. Select SAFE MODE and let the computer boot up. When it getsto the User Login screen it will show the Administrator userid and the useridfor which you forgot the password. Sign in as the Administrator (hopefullyyou didn't put a password on it and forgot it too). Once the desktopappears it will look different, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger,but this is normal for safe mode.

Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts
When the User Accounts screen opens, click on the userid for which you forgotthe password. Select the option to REMOVE PASSWORD.

Reboot your machine.

I had a hard drive go bad and replaced it with "a good deal" second hand one that has a password missing. Is there anyway around this problem? As it stands i cant get past the boot up screen....



Remove a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.

Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computerthe location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.

click start control panel Open User Accounts in Control Panel. On the Users tab, click the name of the user whose password you want to change, and then click Reset Password. In New password and Confirm new password, type the new password, and then click OK. Notes You can change passwords only for local computer accounts, such as guest, administrator, or accounts you create for your computer. You cannot change your network logon password in User Accounts. To change your own password, press CTRL ALT DELETE and then click Change Password

Cant get past request for password on load-up


Supervisor password in the BIOS? then more passwords in the OS?

If so, remove the Real time clock RTC battery to reset the BIOS pasword.

The others are trickier but tapping F8 upon rebooting and choose command line safe mode

hit return as the password, often the administrator password hasn't been set if this was a home computer. At work, usually IT departments make sure this doesn't happen.

activate the administrator account if it hasn't been touched net user administrator /active:yes.

You might be blocked but there are straight forward ways to recover passwords and that is a deeper dive discussion. I tread lightly due to security issues but publicly available utilities have been known to work: about.com re: Ophcrack

Try not to go too far down the hacking path. The tables turns instantly and you will be worse off than going into data recovery education.

Cannot get past the log in screen asking for user/password


There are Linux password recovery programs on the Internet that allow you to remove the passwords on User accounts.
You can Google search and download the program, you then need to make a boot CD with this program.

ALternately you can purchase a copy of Windows XP or Vista and wipe Windows 2K and install XP or Vista on the laptop.

Cant log on forgot user account password for hp pavilion zd8000


Oh, you must be an Administrator, right? If there is another Administrator account on the PC, it can restore your password through User Account Settings -> Manage Another Account.

If not, I have a complex way. First, restart the PC. When it shows the HP logo when booting up, press the button for Setup (it is shown at the bottom of the screen, and it is F8 on my HP tx2001au).

Now, don't get scared by what appears. It looks a bit complex, but it is very simple and easy.

Navigate using the keyboard. Press the right button to move to the Security section. Here, press Enter on the Administrator Password option. Now enter and confirm a new password and you're done.

See the bottom of the screen for the button for 'Quit Saving Changes' and the computer will reboot. Now, I guess you can enter the new password.

If this doesn't work, see online for ways to reset a password in Vista. There are some softwares to burn to a CD and use.

If it is an XP, I guess there is nothing to do. Just press Ctrl+Alt+Del on the logon screen to see the classic logon screen. Type in the username 'Administrator' without quotation marks and the password blank. Press Enter and enjoy.
