some one must have put in a boot password to your laptop,
When booting up, enter your BIOS setup (usually by pressing the F2 key at the appropriate time).
Locate the BIOS Password section and turn the ON STARTUP password to off. There is no standard setup for BIOS, so I can't give you exact instructions.
If this does not work, try:
remove cell & start your pc you will here beep...beep...beep...
then turn off your pc & restore your cell.Start your pc and
password is removed.
there is a battery on motherboard,a button cell,you can try removing that and start computer, then put it back, bios settings will be lost.
you can also try removing any hardware like ram,if you have two,when system is off,turn on , it will prompt for changes , enter bios and try remove password.
Installing a fresh operating system is a good
option, and there might be a feature in the BIOS to restore the system to
factory defaults. Information on how to do this:
Windows XP: Dell PC Restore
Using PC Restore:
1. Turn on the computer.
During the boot process, a blue bar with www.dell.com appears at the top
of the screen.
2. Immediately upon seeing the blue
bar, press <Ctrl><F11>.
If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the computer finish
starting, and then restart the computer again.
NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot.
3. Click Restore and click Confirm.
The restore process takes approximately 6 to 10 minutes to complete.
4. When prompted, click Finish to
reboot the computer.
NOTE: Do not manually shut down the computer. Click Finish and let the computer
5. When prompted, click Yes.
restarts. Because the computer is restored to its original
operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License
Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the computer
was turned on.
6. Click Next.
The System Restore screen appears and the computer restarts.
Try restoring your system bios to factory default and this may fix your problem. If not- post again with results and we'll go from there.
Entering System Setup
Turn on your computer.
When the blue DELL logo is displayed watch for the F2 prompt to appear (black screen / white text).
Once this F2 prompt appears, immdiately press F2 .
The F2 prompt indicates that the keyboard has initialized and is detected. This prompt can appear very quickly. Watch for it to display as the screen powers up, and then press F2. If you press F2 before you are prompted, this keystroke will be lost. There is a small window of time to do this before Windows starts. If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft Windows desktop. Then, shut down your computer and try again to enter setup. At setup check your bios version. It may need to be flashed (upgraded). Select load factory defaults to see if that will resolve your PCI issues.
id reinstall vista ! if you want to do this you need to get in to the bios which u press F2 i believe when the comp first starts up when your in the bios scroll along to boot menu u shud see a boot list with your hard drive at the top ,you need to change your dvd drive to the top so itll boot from dvd , restart your computer with a windows vista disc in the dvd drive and i think it shud give you an option to fix your system if doesnt work then definitly do a clean install of vista using your product code . hope this works
I guess a new software install could have caused the issue. The could be conflict between devices.
Remove all the USB devices connected to the laptop. Remove external mouse and keyboard also if any.
Try booting. If it still does not boot then restart system and keep pressing F8 to view the boot options. If you get the boot screen then choose Safe mode option and try booting in to the desktop. Once the desktop is available go to Start-> Accessories-> System Tools-> System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.
If F8 does not work then probably you can do a complete reinstall of the OS by pressing F11 or Ctrl+F11. You will lose all the data in the system using this option and the system will be restored back to its factory settings. (This option works only if the laptop has manufacturer provided OS in it)
else you need to contact Toshiba tech support for any hardware related issues

Press the down arrow key to highlight Integrated Devices (LegacySelect Options). Press Enter. A small box with a list of devices appears in the middle of the screen. Press the down arrow key to highlight USB Emulation. The default setting is On. Press the Space Bar on your keyboard to change the setting to No Boot. Press the Esc key. The small box disappears.

The recommended changes have now been made to the BIOS.
