Log in in Safe Mode (pressing F8 befor the Windows logo appears); select Safe mode from the list. Once logged in (As Administrator) go to Control Panel> User Accounts, select the user account and select "Remove my password". Restart the PC, and you will be back to business.

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite A305-S6916 from a guy, he gave me some codes to it, but not a password. I don't have it and how can I unlock the laptop?


If the system has a start up password and you do not have it you will need to contact Toshiba. The information you are looking for is not public to help protect against laptop theft. If the laptop is not reported as stolen, Toshiba will unlock it for a fee.

Good luck, Jim

The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE
You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port.Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg this is a picture of the finished dongle


Wire the pins as follows :-1-5-10, 2-11, 3-17, 4-12, 6-16, 7-13, 8-14, 9-15
Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password..
OR there are other places that will sell you a "Key" for a price.
OR you can provide "Proof of Ownership" to Toshiba, and they will sell you a "Code" to remove the Anti-Tamper, Anti-theft, protection.

Emachine laptop hard disc is password protected


If it is a hard drive password, you don't. You will have to install a new hard drive, reload the operating system and all device drivers.

If that is the power on password (BIOS) password, that can be removed by a repair center authorized by Toshiba for Toshiba laptops. If you are referring to the Windows password, that can be removed using full system recovery (like reformatting and reloading of the operating system and original programs and drivers) but you need to have the recovery disk for it. You can call Toshiba to check if you can purchase the recovery disks for it. Hope this helps. Thank you.

UNLOCKING MY TOSHIBA SATELLITE L45-S2416


Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".

Power off the system, then power it back on and see if you can get to the desktop. If you can, then go to the screen saver settings and uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box.

If you cannot boot into windows, then power off again, the power on and tap F8 to get the Windows Startup menu, select SAFE MODE and see if you get a login prompt, if you do select the username ADMIN with a blank password and see if you can get to Windows. If you do, go to control panel, user Accounts and remove the password from the user account.

If none of that works, then here is a last ditch alternative.

Bought a laptop and can't get passed the password screen


Hi,

If this is a BIOS password, it will be difficult to to bypass without removing the CMOS battery.

If it is a windows password, you will need to reinstall the OS.
