How to reset hard drive password, toshiba sattlite reset forgotten hard drive password,satelite. L655D S5093


Chris Hingee is absolutely correct. Even if you reset the laptop bios password, you will not be able to reset the hard drive bios password. That old hard drive is your new paper weight after you purchase a new hard drive.

Is there a way to bypass a bios password?


If you set your BIOS password but have forgotten what it is, then the simplest way to reset it is to remove the BIOS battery. You need to be somewhat technically proficient to do so, especially if it's the BIOS on a laptop you want to reset. Some machines have a BIOS reset button on the back of them to reset the BIOS after a failed overclock, but I've never seen such a function on a laptop. You may also try typing in "Toshiba" as your BIOS password if that's the make of your laptop as it's been use a backdoor BIOS password in the past.

How do i reset the bios password for my lenovo a310?


User passwords:
Power on
BIOS execution can be controlled by a Power On Password. This password is set in the BIOS Configuration screen, accessed by pressing the F1 key after pressing the power on switch to turn on the PC. If the person at the keyboard does not know the Power On Password, then BIOS execution halts.

Hard drive
The hard drive is controlled by the Hard Drive Password. After the Power On Password is entered, the person at the keyboard must be able to enter the Hard Drive Password, otherwise the disk drive will not spin up for use. Like the Power On Password, the Hard Drive Password is set in the BIOS configuration screen.

Administrative passwords:
Each of the two user passwords can be controlled by a Master or administrative password. If the administrative password is not set, then anyone who knows the user password can change it in the BIOS configuration screen. If the administration password is set, then it is impossible to reset the user password unless you know the administrative password. The Supervisor Password is the administrative password for the Power On Password. The Master Hard Drive Password controls the Hard Drive Password.

Password Recovery is a feature of Client Security Solution 6.0. This makes it possible for an end user to recover from the problem of "I forgot my Power On Password or Hard Drive Password."

Sounds like the hard drive was locked, or the BIOS was locked. If the hard drive was locked, you must replace the hard drive. if the BIOS was locked you willl need to reset the bios. You can likely remove the CMOS battery to reset the bios.

I need to reset the BIOS on a w2260 model. cant


The BIOS is the "Basic Input/Output System".
It is stored on a chip on your motherboard.
Generally, the BIOS _never_ needs to be updated ("flashed").

You can change hardware (amount of RAM, add/remove add-in audio/video/network cards, new hard-drive) and the BIOS will detect the new & changed devices, without needing to be "reset".

If you can press DELETE and get to "BIOS setup", then re-enable that "BIOS Guardian", save changes, and exit from setup.

So, exactly what "prompt" are you getting?

When switching on the laptop, the error check media cable comes up and that is it


reset the BIOS defaut settings. Go to the BIOS, if it allows you, then look for the option to reset the bios defaults. Also, confirm that the system list your hard disk in the BIOS after resetting the BIOS default. Removing and reconnecting the hard disk and memory can also help.

Turned on and is asking for bios password


Hello,

If you have the hard drive installed in a desktop, remove your CMOS battery for about 5 minutes. Replace and you should be good to go. You will need to reset the time and date on your pc.

Good Luck

First check in bios that your harddisk is detected or not?

You can ente rin bios with following method:

When u powerup press F2 or "del" F1 key to enter in bios.
but if u have problem of bios password followbelow procedure

here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user passsword

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.
