When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?


Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

I forgot my password and cannot get into my notebook


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there hope this helps

also:

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased:. Hope this helps

Update available for HP BIOS PTools Security


Usually you don't flash the bios while you are in the bios. Sometimes if you flash the bios, it will go to default settings and there will no longer be a password. Sometimes removing the CMOS battery for a few seconds and replacing it will also do it.

Computer says something about verifying pool data


If it says something along the lines of verifying dmi pool data then you might have a problem with your BIOS ( the setup utility you refer to ). Here is a URL that describes a solution to this problem, it is pretty intense if you don't have at least above average computer skills - http://www.duxcw.com/faq/computer/dmi.html. Let me know if you need any further assistance with this.

My IBM Thinkpad is not switching on?


The error message relates to the date and time setting in the BIOS, it has a wrong due to a flat BIOS battery. The needs to be replaced and the date and time corrected,
The padlock symbol indicates the laptop's BIOS has been set with a password and you cannot enter and change the BIOS settings without this password.

Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then boot up and enter your BIOS password, then change the time & date, then save and exit.

Friend Locked out of her laptop.


What make/model of computer?  What operating system? What BIOS type/version/revision?

 

There IS a way to reset it without losing the data on the drive. It sounds like he has set up a password in the system BIOS or either password protected an entire volume in Win 200x/Vista.

 

If he has set a BIOS pw, you can remove the batteries and jumper the CMOS reset pin for a few seconds...IF you can get to it.  If you can determine the BIOS name/version, I can probably put you onto a boot diskette that will clear the BIOS.

 

For 3 bucks, I'll send the boyfriend a virus!!!   lol
