New computers recommend an administrator password so you can set it up. The password would be one that you want to put in. So just use one that you will remember and it will then ask you to confirm the password that you entered. Remember to write your chosen password down somewhere in case you forget it at a later date. For example if oyu ever have to restore your computer to factory default settings it will ask you for the password that you created here. So enter anything as long as you remember what it is. Lots of people just put the word admin for their password because it is easy to remember. But it is up to you.

You can do a reset on it (but you will lose all your files) by shutting off the laptop and during the start-up press F4 or F8 if F4 doesn't work and it should bring you to another screen to follow steps to factory reset it!
Unplug printer shut down computer, plug in printer, reboot computer try update again. The password , is it a network printer? Open Network and Sharing Center, Look for Password protected printing, change password or set to no. It's a default setting .
There is no default password for Administrator user. Normally you can set the Administrator during installation. If you don't know or you didn't install the system yourself ask who install the windows for the password.
If you set the hard drive password yourself and forgot it, you out of luck. I don?t know if you would be able to recover it. After a quick search on Google I found a utility called A-FF Repair Station. They support a lot of drives and license for 1 recovery will cost you about $50. I have never tried this software myself.
If you didn?t set the hard drive password and the laptop still asking for it on start up, then I have a suggestion. Check the version of BIOS installed on your laptop. Three wil be some fix in the latest version like: ?Prevented the message asking for HDD password when there is a problem with the HDD?. In other words, if there is a problem with your hard drive, the laptop might ask you about the hard drive password even if you didn?t set it up. Go to Toshiba tech support website, update the BIOS on your laptop and see if you can bypass the HDD password message.
According to the BIOS fix in v.1.50, the HDD password message might indicate that you have a bad hard drive. If after the BIOS update you can bypass the hard drive password message and access the data, I would recommend back it up as soon as possible.
