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.

SOURCE: booting

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,

Matt

SOURCE: I HAVE A TOSHIBA SATELLITE L355 S7831 AND I FORGOT

Hello,

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

When I log on it says the user profile failed to upload. I can purposly put in an incorrect password and it says that is is incorrect, but with the correct password,it just says failed to upload.


It's exactly what it says - your user profile is corrupted. Login as admin, create a new user and move all your file to it. Login in the new user, make sure it's ok and all the files are there then rebbot, login again as admin and delete the old user.

Windows cannot load the locally stored profile. Possible causes of this error include insufficient security rights or a corrupt local profile. If this problem persists contact your network administrator.


It looks your profile is corrupted. You can login with administrator's login id other than the local profile user id and rename the old profile located in c:\documents and settings\ your user login name folder
and rename the folder. After that logout and login again with your user id, one having problem with profile and again go to the c:\documents and settings\ your user id name folder which you renamed and move your critical data on desktop or my documents to the new profile.

My desktop wont show, my icons, my start bar, nothin will show


Chances are your profile has become corrupt. There are a few ways to fix this. The one surefire way is to make a new profile and copy your My Documents from the old profile to the new one, as well as My Pictures to My Pictures, etc. To do this you should turn on the pc, and after the first black background screen with logo (most likely) goes away, start tapping the F8 button every second or two until a menu comes up with options like "safe mode" "safe mode with networking" etc. Use the arrow key on your computer and move the highlight to "safe mode with networking". Hit enter on you keyboard. You may need to hint enter once or twice more until you get to a login screen like what you may be used to. Choose your username and login. Hit ok on the initial safe mode screen. If your desktop loads with icons, then your profile is ok, something else is wrong. If your icons don't show up, then we know your profile is corrupt. If your icons are gone, shut down, follow steps to enter safe mode, but choose Administrator as the user, and hit enter with a blank password to enter Administrator profile. Once in there go to Control Panel, and then User Accounts and make a new user. Then restart the comptuter, log in as the new user, and copy your files from the old profile to the new one.
Let me know if this doesn't work and we will try something else.

The computer won't log me on.


Make a backup copy of all your data, including passwords, emails, settings, etc

Find another windows xp computer whether its a friends or another computer you have and get a memory stick or external hard drive ( which you will need ) on the working computer go into

c:\documents and settings

make a copy of the default user folder and copy that over the one on your laptop and try again.

I rebooted my system in 'safe mode' (which allowed me to login as
administrator), moved my files to the public area, and then deleted my
profile (using the Users option in Control Panel).

When I rebooted again, in normal mode, I could login as administrator, and
then moved my files back and rebuilt my profile manually.

The only problem was my forgetting about e-mail messages, which I did not
backup and have been lost permanently. Ug!!!

When i turn my computer on it will not allow me to login in. Once I enter my password it tell me that ''the user profile service service failed the logon, user profile cannot be loaded".


reinstall windows.  it may be a virus disabled and destroyed the profile service, so even if you were to boot into safe mode and attempt to access windows services and turn it on and start it automatically, when you rebooted to normal operation, it would still tell you it wasn't working or that it was corrupt.  you can try a repair install and that could possibly get things back to normal, but not remove the virus.  for that, you will need to connect the hard drive to another uninfected computer and run a full scan.

Forgottten password


Press F8 on the onset of the pc's startup. You'll be redirected to the advanced boot configuration. Select Safe Mode and will be redirected to the login screen. Choose Administrator as the login. As soon as you were able to login under the administrator profile, follow this. Go to control panel --> User Accounts --> select the Account that you're having difficulty loggin in --> remove password ---> delete all characters under the field ---> click OK. Restart the computer normally.
If it happens that the administrator login also asks the same password, this would mean that your own profile is the administrator and the only way to eliminate this would be to do a Repair or OS reinstallation.

This is normal with Vista, Vista log in users as standard (not Administrator privileges) , then ask if to run programs as administrator for security reasons. Once you tell the system to run program as administrator it should install with no problems.
If you really cannot install the program, you can restart computer and login as administrator:
At the "pick a user to login" screen, hit CTRL-ALT-DEL to get the classic login screen. Then you can type in Administrator for the user name, default password is blank.
