Bios password on toshiba


Some Toshiba laptops come with a system BIOS password, making anyone without the password unable to get past the BIOS screen at system startup. This is a strong security measure, as it renders a stolen computer useless unless the password is known. If you have a Toshiba laptop and want to change the BIOS password, you can quickly do it.

1. Power on the computer while holding down the "Esc" key. Enter your current password when prompted and press "Enter."
2. Press "F1" to enter the BIOS setup menu. Highlight "REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your password and press "Enter."
3. Restart the computer while holding "Esc" and hit "F1" again to enter the BIOS menu. Highlight "NOT REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your new password and press "Enter." Type the password again for verification and hit "Enter." Press "End" to save the changes, and "Y" to exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I have forgotten my old password to log on


Hi,

Start the computer and get to the logon screen.

Hold down Ctrl and Alt and then hit the Del key twice, it should take you to an advanced log on screen. Clear the name and type in administrator in the user name pane, leave the the password pane blank and hit enter.

It should now take you through to admin account. Go to the control panel>User Accounts and from there you can change or completely remove the password.


Good luck and kind regards.

My toshiba laptop is a black screen asking for a password.


hi friend,

If you have lost or forgotten the XP administrator password, first reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes.

You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.

Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password.

You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.

All done, you have recovered the lost administrators password! Source(s): http://www.hsinlin.com/tips/lost_passwor…

If it’s a BIOS password then there are several ways to do it, on older Toshiba's there is a “key” that you put in the parallel port to unlock it, or you can remove the BIOS battery (with the main battery and the mains out) then short out the pins for a few seconds (sometimes you have to strip down the base of the laptop to get to it, maybe half to an hours work if you know what you’re doing). If it has been written to a fixed memory, you’re stuffed and need to contact Toshiba with proof that it’s yours.
If it’s an XP / Vista user account password then you can either log in as Admin using safe mode (F8), or, as happens sometimes) you’ve removed/disabled the Admin account or forgotten ITS password as well then you need to clear the user account password file (ther are a number of programs that do this, I know which ones I prefer, others may have different choices)
If you’re still stuck let me know.
thank u for using fixya regards, sivaranjini
