This is a geneic problem with all thoshiba satellite A100 series laptops. When you still have warranty with your machine, HP is liable to fix it for you, otherwise you have to do it yourself. When you are afraid of doing it yourself, just go with the instructions to a certified technician and let him fix it for you.

This is the solution if you have to fix it yourself:

Remove the plastic piece above the keyboard.
Unscrew the 2 screws on the keyboard and lift it up gently. You don't need to disconnect it.
Now unscrew and remove the modem card in the center.
On the system board you will find 2 solder points c88. Short those 2 points out while you press the power button on, which will reset the bios password.

Unlock code for lenovo s10-3


Your hdd is password protected. You can't unlock the hdd at home. Change hdd, or go to a data recovery center with the hdd, they can unlock it. Or find the original password from the last owner.

Unlock hard drive


If the HDD is password protected, you can do CD intallation of the operational system, "removing password and personal data" if that is not an option, go to www.ebay.com Type: HDD password and go through the list of sellers to make a choice of software that reveals or resets passwords.

How to unlock toshiba satellite laptop BIOS and HDD


If you are the original owner Toshiba will reset the bios for a fee and it is not cheap, they may include the HDD reset, if not! www.ebay.com type password, or hard drive password. I would check bios password, probably a lot cheaper if you can find the right seller, also check www.download.com some software may be free.

How do i remove a built-in HDD password?


If it is the password that has been firmware locked, you cannot. This is to stop people who steal laptops from accessing data
If its a BIOS password, access the bios by pressing ( I THINK) F2 or F1 or Del at start up, navigate through the BIOS screens until you find SET Password and remove it

I forgot hdd password how to unlock


Toshiba highly recommends the customer to fully understand what HDD Password is and once registered please keep your "PASSWORD" in a safe place.Your HDD password is different from your BIOS Password. Your BIOS Password is stored in the computer, but your HDD Password is stored in the HDD unit itself. So even the HDD unit is removed from one computer and attached to another, the HDD password is required to access it.If you forget your HDD User Password, TOSHIBA will NOT be able to assist you, and your HDD will be rendered COMPLETELY and PERMANENTLY INOPERABLE. TOSHIBA will NOT be held responsible for any loss of data, any loss of use or access to your HDD, or for any other losses to you or any other person or organization resulting from the loss of access to your HDD. http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB6B01MC000CR01.htm

Will not except my boot password


if it is not accepting your boot password, make sure your password is typed correctly hence no caps or caps num lock or no num lock etc.

If you have tried all that and failed, reset the cmos by removing the battery on the motherboard and leaving it out for atleast a minute to be safe. Place it back in and start the computer up. Everything should be reset to manufactures default and password should be removed. Please do not try this if your not technically trained or certified in this field.
