Question about Toshiba Satellite 5205-S503 Notebook

1 Answer

5205-s503 just froze on me and the little screen in front says HD1 Password. I have no password for this laptop and when I just hit enter, it just shuts down. I want to get into BIOS so I can change the boot sequence to boot from a utilities cd but can't seem to get past this "In Toch With tomorrow" screen.

Try plugging it into a different outlet. If that doesn't work, test your ac adapter. Check the voltage for 19.5v.

Upon bootup attempt there is no itial beep, comes up w/ hdp1password= on display and monitor displays toshiba splashscreen...?


The hard disk has a password on it. If you haven't activated yourself then it went active on its own, a sign that the disk electronic board is dying. This can't be fixed, the hard disk is practically dead so take it out of your laptop before it damages something else. Then put in a new one and reinstall Windows.

Forget password bios toshiba satlite 5205


To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of your Toshiba Satellite laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

I want to restore my toshiba satellite 5205-s503 to factory settings. please help. i tried the whole pressing f8 repeatedly thing and there are no options to restore the computer to factory settings.


Hi,
You will need the restore cds that came with your laptop. Insert the restore cd in your dvd drive and restart your computer. When the message "Press any key to boot from cd" press enter.
Then follow the on screen instructions to restore your computer.

Toshiba satellite 5005-S504 boots over and over and over non stop


It sounds like the hard drive is dying. I had a computer do the same thing and it turned out to be the hard drive. You should still be able to access the bios though. Try hittind either delete or F1 as soon as your toshiba screen appears.
