Re: Help!

This sounds like it is the BIOS Password, the only way I know how to reset it, is to take out the onboard Battery from the Motherboard and to put it back again, so that your Bios losses its Memory, but then all your other settings are also reset. I would suggest that you take it in to a shop to let it be done, if you do not know much about Laptops. Regards

Black screen blue box saying

some one must have put in a boot password to your laptop,
follow this:
When booting up, enter your BIOS setup (usually by pressing the F2 key at the appropriate time).

Locate the BIOS Password section and turn the ON STARTUP password to off. There is no standard setup for BIOS, so I can't give you exact instructions.

If this does not work, try:
remove cell & start your pc you will here beep...beep...beep...

then turn off your pc & restore your cell.Start your pc and
password is removed.

there is a battery on motherboard,a button cell,you can try removing that and start computer, then put it back, bios settings will be lost.
you can also try removing any hardware like ram,if you have two,when system is off,turn on , it will prompt for changes , enter bios and try remove password.

Black screen ask for password

Black screen with "Enter Password" in blue box. - BIOS password.
To reset: take the CMOS battery out then place it back again.

Black screen with Enter password in the upper right left corner - could be hard disc password.,
If you set up the password before, you can only bypass that by entering the correct password. If not, it will render the hard disc useless.

Blank screen asking for password

I presume this is the CMOS or BIOS password.
Turn the unit over and find the ram cover, remove the ram locate the two brass bars near where the ram was. Take a paper clip and bridge them to short out and reset bios password.

replace ram and turn on

Not able to enable password login

Firstly start by opening your run box and enter control userpasswords2

When the user accounts window opens, check the box which states 'Users must enter a username and password to use this computer' and apply the setting.

You will be requested for the username and password of the account you wish to automatically logon as for following reboots of your system.

hi, 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. regards sreejith
