There is no such way, microsoft has no sympathy for those who forgotten their passwords.

1. try the hint, you've obviously set a hint word to make you remember the password.

2. try remembering the password

3. last option (but you lose your data and programs) is to load the operating system disks and format the whoe laptop and re-install the OS
or other words reset it to manufacturer settings.

4. a repair shop can do that for you.

5. remove the hard drive, use a hard drive reader and this software called

Is this a bios or windows password?

Posted on Mar 02, 2009

  • Ekse Mar 02, 2009

    If this is a windows password tap f8 before windows starts to load up,
    the advanced boot menu will come up, use safemode, and login with
    Administrator and no password, if you can't login have you set a
    password there?

    If you are unable to login reinstall windows or use a xp password reset cd to reset the administrator password.

    instructions on that are here

    this is a bios start up password, right when you power on the computer,
    please confirm the model of the laptop Satellite and ? provide as much
    detail as possible.

    Also I would appriciate it if you could
    accept my solution so we can communicate better instead of going from
    expert to expert constantly.

    In any case a sure fire way to get
    the bios password reset is to contact toshiba for the repair, it will
    cost you but they will get it reset. I may have instructions depends on
    the model. see the bottom of the laptop.

    if the password is a vista login you have two options

    1) reinstall vista

    2) use one of the tools here

    If the password is bios, then you need to contact toshiba see if they will repair it for you.

    I will have to look up a service manual for your model if you please post it to me with the add a comment link and I'll see if I can find you instructions.

Locked myself out of my hard drive by putting a password on it in BIOS. I cleared the admin and user pwd's, but came up with a new one for the drive. I can't remember it.

You can either remember it to use your hdd or purchase a new hdd and start again with a fresh OS then restoring your data from your backups.

Power the laptop off. Unplug it. Remove the battery. Turn it over. Open the bottom panels. Look for a small battery. Unplug this battery. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. RE-Assemble everything. Turn it back on - hopefully it has cleared the settings and you will be prompted to enter the BIOS.

If you cant find the password or remember it you'll have to do a hard reset on your router.

You can do a hard reset by plugging it in, locating the small hole on the bottom or side with possiblitly the words reset next to it. Insert a pin for about 10-20 seconds and the device should revert to the default settings.

You can then set up a new SSID and password.

A tip to help me remember is to write the password down and tape it to the bottom of my wifi router.

Enjoy your Kindle.

Need to clear bios password

Remove the battery from the laptop.
Turn it upside down and remove the plates after unscrewing them.
Find a button cell on the motherboard.
Remove the button cell for a few minutes and then reinsert it. Remember how it was initially. Reinsert it the same way.
Put the plates back on the laptop.
Connect the main battery and power up.
You will find that the bios password has gone.
And remember not to use and passwords again as we all tend to forget them sooner or later.
