Question about Toshiba Satellite P775S7236 Notebook
Cannot get to start. Is asking for password, the telling me user profile corrupt- How can I get computer to go to "Start"
Ok, just did this on my partners Toshiba. dont get any 3rd party software, all you need is a boot disc. find a friend with the same operation system and ask them to make one. can go on a cd. ok, when u start press F2, this will bring up bios settings. using keyboard and the arrow keys you can scroll along, go to boot disc. set this to cd and put the main disc to the bottom. trust me, it helps. F10 will save settings. make sure while doing this u put in the boot cd. when it refires up u may have to keep shutting down and up to get to boot from disc. now is the tricky part... get with another pc and go on youtube, look up how to remove a profile, lost password stuff. find the one which says you need the boot disc. let it fire up and first let it repair windows, could be lost file, if not, then do it again but u need command promp up. this is the trick part, punch in c:dir. this will access the main drive if that is your drive, thenc:dirwordpad.exe if you do it right wordpad will be there, wow. now with wordpad you start the search, c then windows, then system 32. scroll down to sethe make sure you got all files first in wordpad or u wont see it, change to sethe1 then find up cmd. change this to sethe. close window, do a shut down and restart without boot disc
i did this and it had to do a repair, because setting have been changed, if u had a password, punch in when it starts, this will set up the password and wow, one pc all running, did this, took me 2 days of searching but i got the pc to work, then change the password or better still, forget it totally. hope this works

SOURCE: Password needed
Hello nic208, The problem is you have a BIOS level password installed. Laptop owners and computer departments sometimes install them in case the laptop is lost or stolen to prevent unauthorized users from gaining access.

It sounds as if this is a BIOS password request.
Has anyone been changing setting in the BIOS recently?
Occasionally, static or electrical interference can cause a BIOS password to reset to it's default.
Bypassing the BIOS password is not easy, but is possible. First of all, I would suggest you try some of the common manufacturers default passowrda. You can find lists here and here.
Failing that, there are software programs available to recover/reset lost BIOS password or you can manually reset the BIOS. Details of how you do this are here and here.
If you are not 100% sure what you are doing, I would not advise you to reset your BIOS. There are setting in here that you will need to set in order for your computer to work properly. Wrong values could prevent it from working at all, or could even cause permanent damage.
Google for 'reset bios password' - You'll find lots more information...
Hope this helps,

When you installed the system, you entered a BIOS password.
There is nothing you can do to bypass that password. The only solution is to take laptop to Toshiba Certified Service Center to have password disabled.
Hope it helps
