Is this a windows login password or a boot password

you should have Fn key on keyboard
and another coloured key to correspond for turning on keyboard press Fn and the other key simultaneously
Could be fn f3 keys
if you just bought you may find it in your manual
please let me know if you still need help
if you have a switch above scroll pad you may have shut that off but all models don't come with that option

Hi friends i have problem can anyon tell me pls.


Try hooking up a USB Keyboard to it and see if the letters appear then. It could be the keyboard on the netbook its self and it isn't typing characters therefore telling you the password is incorrect. External USB Keyboard , try that.

Type the word "run" in the window that appears.

Boot up or restart your Toshiba laptop.


Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key on your keyboard until the start screen appears to change your BIOS (user) and supervisor

My windows Xp on mac wont run


Hi there,

Try getting the latest version of bootcamp again, and making sure you create the driver cd it asks you to create during the install.

This part is critical as it installs the software needed for your keyboard and mouse to be recognised by windows xp.

Hope this help.

Turned on the 6930 andwhen it gets top the login where it asks for your password it wont type...thought it was the mouse but when I got the external mouse going I still cant type a letter in the space...


i would try plugging in an external keyboard.  if you don't have one laying around, you should be able to find one pretty cheap.  i've seen basic keyboards for $5 or $10 bucks.  just make sure that you get one with the proper connector for your computer.  (ps/2, the round one, or usb).  If the external keyboard works, then you've got an issue with your internal keyboard and will probably need to have it serviced.

I had this problem for a very long time as well. Turns out this is an encryption issue. It's off-balance. You need to reset the encryption, and here's how:

On the LEFT side of your wireless keyboard press and hold Ctrl+Alt, and press F12, then release all three buttons. Now push the Connect button on your Wireless Receiver, then the connect button on your wireless keyboard. Now press Esc. Try it. See if it works. It did for me.
