First, you need to find the model number of your laptop. Then, you can either post it here for me to give you the instructions or find them yourself from the manufacturers website. Your optical drive can either be removed completely or just disconnected. You should be able to accomplish the task with a phillips screwdriver.

The HDD and Bios passwords are there for extra security.
You would never usually see this message unless you where trying to change bios settings, or re install windows.
If you are not trying to do either of these, then your windows installation must be damaged (old age or maybe a virus).
If you have no knowledge of installing/fixing a windows installation, you will need to find a friend, or a local shop to fix this for you

I turn laptop on and it is asking for bios passwor, but i thought i knew password but it ain't that


Hi,
Thank you for contacting Fixya. This is Anil.
I understand that whenever you turn ON the computer it pops for HDD password.

Inorder to reset it please follow the steps mentioned below:

If you have forgot BIOS/HDD password then you have to reset CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battrey, remove it &
then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with
a screwdriver while turning ON). It will short the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battrey & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

I believe the above resolution should resolve the issue, however, if the issue still persists, please contact us. We will be glad to help you.
Thank you. Have Great Day.

Regards,
Anil.B.R

The BIOS being locked by a password will not stop the laptop starting up, it will just stop acess to the BIOS to change any settings so there is more here than we know.

Can you acess the boot sequence on start up and is the HDD listed?

Bios password can usually reset by removing laptop battery and clock battery from motherboard, but HDD password as i know cant remove. You should change your HDD.

hi, If you set the hard drive password yourself and forgot it, you out of luck. I don?t know if you would be able to recover it. After a quick search on Google I found a utility called A-FF Repair Station. They support a lot of drives and license for 1 recovery will cost you about $50. I have never tried this software myself. If you didn?t set the hard drive password and the laptop still asking for it on start up, then I have a suggestion. Check the version of BIOS installed on your laptop. Three wil be some fix in the latest version like: ?Prevented the message asking for HDD password when there is a problem with the HDD?. In other words, if there is a problem with your hard drive, the laptop might ask you about the hard drive password even if you didn?t set it up. Go to Toshiba tech support website, update the BIOS on your laptop and see if you can bypass the HDD password message. According to the BIOS fix in v.1.50, the HDD password message might indicate that you have a bad hard drive. If after the BIOS update you can bypass the hard drive password message and access the data, I would recommend back it up as soon as possible. regards sreejith
