Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000 and 6100 14.1 LCD Display LQ141X1LH53 (P000316660) CD-ROM Drive
Hi, depends on the laptop in question. If it's a newer model I am afraid your pretty well knackered as the the hard drive will be encrypted using the security chip in the laptop and one won't work without the other so I don't think a new hard drive will work either unfortunately but it might do. If this is the case you have 4 options
1 - Re-solder a new security chip onto the board (good luck with that).
2 - Replace the motherboard (expensive unless you can pick one up on Ebay).
3 - Try a new hard drive (might be lucky)
4 - Remember the password
You could also search Google for a hack, As I said depend on the age of the laptop but are some for older chips but not for the newer ones as far as I know. I have been successful with older HP's and Toshiba's but I haven't had to break into one for a while and as I said last time I tried with a lenovo I spoke to lenovo and they told me it wasn't possible.
Hope that helps
