There are a few windows crack software programs on the internet. Just google "crack windows password". They are usually free or a couple of bucks. You will need to boot from the password cracker CD and then follow the prompts. Passware makes a real nice one we use here in the shop.

My laptop Toshiba Satellite Pro A210 is locked with password in BIOS SETUP It does not recognise the original password

Wow, as I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro. I'm sorry, but there is no easy way out of this if you have enabled a bios lock. It is looking for a password that "someone" set up. I say that because there is no bios password when you setup the machine. Also, the bios password is completely different from the user or system password. (Although you could make them the same.)

Please find the person you got the computer from; type in the correct password; and be aware that it is case sensitive. Make sure the caps key is not accidentally down.

- there is no original bios password; you would have needed to set it, and remember it. There is no recovery (that I'm aware of) to a mis-placed bios password.

Cannot log in it won't recognise my password

make sure caps locks is off, if still not working turn caps lock on(this is in case a shift key is stuck down) im assuming this is in request for a windows passwd? go to and you can download a recovery disk by putting in your info and that will remove any personal passwords that are active
