Hello,
you're out of luck, unless you're familiar with "shorting" the bios chip.
Of course, you can contact Toshiba for a workaround. Proof of ownership is necessary.
good luck

To get into the BIOS as the machine is starting up Tap the F2 key. It may also be F1, Delete, or Esc so try all of them until one works.

Screen says reboot and select proper bootdevice


Guessing, but it sounds like your hard drive has been damaged. You may need a new drive, or at least repairs. If you have a "rescue disk", give that a try.

Bootable device has not been dectected


When the PC cannot see a boot file/disk on either thehard disk or floppy drive it gives an error message "No bootable device. Insert boot disk and press anykey" First thing, check to see if the is a floppy disk inthe floppy drive, if so removes this disk. If there was no disk in the floppy drive then it maybe a hard disk problem.
Check the BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected, if not open the case andre-seat the data cable on the hard drive and also where it connects to themotherboard disk controller.
If it still gives this error message and the BIOS does not detect this harddrive, then the hard drive is probably faulty.
A further check on the hard drive, remove the hard drive and connect it to anUSB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port, if thiscomputer does not detect it as an external storage device then the hard driveis faulty.
To get the computer operating again, install a new hard drive in your computerand then install Windows on this hard drive plus the computer's devicedrivers and your programs.

How to unlock password for a HP 2140 Mini-Note


If you are talking about the login to Windows password then here is one way to do it:
Create a bootable USB stick using this tool: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-multiboot-usb-creator/

Use the image from Ophcrack to load onto the USB: http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php Choose the XP LIVE CD Option
1. Download the YUMI exe to your desktop 2.. Save the LIVE CD of Ophcrack to your desktop. 3. Plug in the usb stick you want to use (make sure it is at least 500MB. 1GB if possible) 4. Run the YUMI EXE and follow the instructions. Make sure to choose the USB Drive Letter ("D:" E:" etc) 5. Choose the Ophcrack ISO for the image. 6. Install to USB 7. Click Finished and exit the program and close any other open programs. 8. Restart the computer. Leave USB plugged in. 9. As soon as the computer restarts, tap the F10 button to enter the BIOS Menu. 10. Scroll to the Boot / Advanced Menu and change the boot order to USB first, HDD second. 11. Save and exit BIOS. Computer will restart. 12. Once booted up the computer will bypass the HDD and boot into the USB 13. elect Ophcrack from the list and hit Enter. 14. Follow the on-screen instructions to have Ophcrack force the password.

(If you're using Linux then use the Linux LIVE CD Image instead of XP)

Hi, how do i do a clean reinstallation of windows xp on sony vaio VGN-NR310E with bootable xp disk?


First of all you need to boot from the DVD - enter BIOS and in Boot order put the dvd first and the hdd second.
If it's a recovery disk all you need to do is to put the disk in and follow the instructions on the screen.
If it's a retail one you will need a lot more - starting with the fact that retail XP disks cannot install on SATA disks without modifications either in themselves or in the way the BIOS manages them. More details are needed for that.

I purchased an ex lease acer travelmate 6592 and I now find the hdd is password protected, I have tried another hard drive but the computer does not recognise either drive.How do I get around this problem...


There is software available to remove HDD passwords, or a computer store may be able to remove it.

You do not need an OS installed in order to update the BIOS; you can use a floppy disk and a BIOS update program to update the BIOS.

Sometimes, you have to restart the computer a few times to get the BIOS to recognize another HDD. You could install the other HDD, and try to boot with a bootable CD with partitioning capabilities

Cant boot


In your bios you should be able to change your settings for the hdd. Make sure everything in bios matches your hdd & then save changes & reboot. Hopefully that will allow you to enter windows.

Boot problem


There are three possible options ranging from free (if you are not afraid to open your laptop, locate and remove the bios battery) to $170 (for a new hard drive and a cloning kit).

Option 1: Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays.

Option 2: Resetting an Acer BIOS Password Using Hardware.
If you cannot boot the Acer and don't want to send your computer back to Acer for an unknown amount of time, you can try to reset the BIOS password via hardware.
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Option 3: Possibly resetting BIOS Password using Hard Drive Upgrade Kit and a new Hard Drive.
A colegue told me that he used a hard drive upgrade kit and during the cloning process the hard drive password was erased. He can not recall providing the password when he booted from the bootable cloning CD provided with the Kit and when he replaced the hard drive with the cloned one and botted the laptop, the hard drive password was gone! He had to go into bios to manually enter a new hard drive password.
The kit he used was about $50 - APRICORN EZ-UP-UNIVERSAL 2.5" USB 2.0 Hard Drive Upgrade Kit - Retail. He paid for a bigger hard drive separately, but he just needed bigger hard drive (and found out about the password erasure by accident).
