Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
So my cousin did something to his laptop and now when it turns on it asks for A password after the Toshiba screen (before the Microsoft Windows Screen). I tried entering into the BIOS but it asks for A password before it lets me in the BIOS so it doesnt let me do anything. So I have no idea what to do, can anyone help me out??
Thanks I appreciate it!!
You are going to have to open the laptop up and reset the bios password. Is this something you are comfortable doing?
If so this site gives you step by step instructions. The bios battery looks like a large watch battery or car clicker (unlock remote) battery. (silver dollar) just take the battery out for about ten seconds and assemble the computer.
This will take care of the password problem. If you need more help let me know
Please don't forget to rate this response and don't let your cousin around your computer anymore :)

You will have to send this machine back to Toshiba to get this removed. They do not provide a utility to download and fix it, or a way for you to do this yourself. If it is still under warranty, take it back to where you purchased the machine and have them send it in. If it is out of warranty, call Toshiba tech support and have them give you a RMA # so that you can send it to them and they will remove the password. It's ridiculous that they handle it this way, but that's their choice. BACK UP your hard disk before sending it in also! You can do that by removing the hard disk and putting it into a hard disk enclosure for notebook drives. Then attach it as a USB drive to another machine and backup your files before sending the machine in.
