Laptop Asks for Password Right Away?

So when I turn on the laptop right after it loads the "In Touch With Tomorrow, Toshiba" right before the windows logo shows up it asks for a password. I tried entering the BIOS but it asks for a Password once I hit F2. I heard two ways to fix this but I am unsure.

The First:
Take out the CMOS clock battery for 12 hours. Hopefully, this will clear out the BIOS settings along with this password. What does the CMOS clock look like on the Toshiba Satellite and is this easier compared to the 2nd?

The Second:
If this doesn't clear the password (sometimes the stored electricity in the capacitors is enough to keep it), there's usually a jumper somewhere on the motherboard to clear BIOS. Where is the jumper or is there a manual or some diagram that can show me how?

Or Is there an easier way, I really appreciate it!!! Thank You

Dont know password for toshiba c660

I suggest you call the tech support for your laptop. If it's something that's really easy for the common folk to answer, then that feature is useless. Am I right?

Check system then press f1 key

Try this:

    • 1

      Insert the Toshiba A60 recovery disc into the CD/DVD-ROM drive.

    • 2

      Power off the Toshiba (with the recovery disc still loaded inside the optical drive).

    • 3 Hold down the "F12" key, at the same time hit the "Power" button to turn the system back on. You don't have to hold down the Power button, but keep holding the F12 key.
    • 4

      Release the "F12" key when the" In Touch with Tomorrow TOSHIBA" screen is displayed. This will open up the BIOS.

    • 5

      Change the boot order by using the arrow keys to select "CD/DVD ROM" icon in the menu. The Toshiba will now boot from the recovery disc and restore the system. Follow any additional on-screen instructions.

My Acer Aspire 5050 asks for password at startup

If the password is the Windows password, the one with the userd icon displayed and Windows logo, then you need to reinstall Windows.

If instead the password pops up right when you turn on the computer, and it is a password with no user id, that pops up right at startup, that is the BIOS supervisor password, in that case to reset it you need to access the motherboard, to do this the laptop must be taken apart, and this job must be done at a repair shop , if you do not want to risk damaging the laptop.

Resetting the password

There are two places when you may be asked for a password - can you please clarify which one it is.
  1. The BIOS password which will ask you for a password BEFORE you see the Windows loading screen
  2. The Windows password, which will ask you for the password after the computer has started, but before you can see your desktop.
There is a reasonably easy solution for both of these.
