Question about Toshiba Satellite X205-SLI1 Notebook
I have someone screwing with my laptop. I now have passwords on the above and every time I wipe my HHD and reload the original software, in a short time I am having computer operation problems and software being on my computer I did not put on it. Toshiba tells me I have to take it to a aurthorized repair dealer. Is the a solution to my problems, or do I have to send it in to the company?
Bios and Cmos are the same thing, HDD is the hard drive, if you are able to use and wipe the hdd then you don't need to worry about the hdd password as its not relevant. Bios/cmos password on the other hand blocks you from either starting the computer or entering the bios/cmos setup.
The bios password can be bypassed/reset if you are able to start the computer from a cd or diskette/usb stick. But if you reset the bios, the hdd password will be gone and that point you will need to send it to toshiba dealer for unlocking.
Are you able to enter the bios right when you start up the computer? the computer says at somepart of the screen what button to press to enter bios. are you able to open it? what happens does a password prompt come up?
Can you also tell me what kind of software is getting into the computer?
