Toshiba A205-S5000 laptop vista home premium how


Try factory reset if you don't have anything important on it. To do so try either F10, F12 or F8. press the button repeatedly before the windows logo shows up. Read and follow instructions If none of the F buttons work try holding the ALT button while pressing one of the other repeatedly. Once you reset to factory you should not have a password.

Mind you hopefully previous owner didn't replace hard drive or delete the factory reset partition. Other wise you could be screwed until you get a system disk (Windows).
