SOURCE: reset bios password

it's the 'clear cmos' jumper you need to move on the motherboard. If you move that over one pin for a moment, then back, then boot up, your p/word will be cleared.

SOURCE: Hdd password frozen on laptop

if you download the sata drivers from the toshiba website for your specific laptop and then extract them and get nlite ( www.nliteos.com and slipstream the drivers into the xp disc you can then re install xp and it should allow you to boot.

As for the hard drive frozen password that should be in the bios on the hard drive that you set it for so it should remember it

if not you may have to contact toshiba and they should have a back door password that they can produce once you give them the asset tag ( serial number of the laptop ) and once you enter that it should resolve the hard drive frozen issue.

Had a hard drive frozen at a school once and had to call dell ( as it was a dell laptop obviously ) and gave them the serial number and they created a back door password for me - jobs a good one :D

like windows command prompt, if you know the command then you can use it otherwise you can use Recover My(windows admin) Password utility software.

For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD

Usually, the hdd password is set the same as bios password. So we can recover the BIOS password directly from the laptop security chip. But if the hdd password is set not the same as bios password, how do you remove hdd password for Dell inspiron?

Therefore, you have to use password cracker only. If you still remember hard disk password, or you remember bios password and bios password is the same as hard drive password, follows the below article to remove it.
