Re: Startup Password


It is simple turn off your laptop.Restart and press the F8 key repeatedly until you get a menu that has an option to go into safe mode. Select the relevant option number then press enter.
Then it wont ask you for any password,just go to control panel>user accounts>add or remove user account,here change your password or remove it. Thats it you are done,shut it down and thn restart it and at your welcome screen enter da new pass.

How to access startup forgot password?


If you mean your BIOS password you will need to remove the battery and then remove the case from your laptop to access the main board, there will be a battery on there that holds the setting when powered off, remove this leave out for 2 mins replace and then put back together and power up, your BIOS should now have no password so you can access the settings again.

You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc.

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.

Forgot startup password cant get in to my laptop it's window 7

If it is the main password, you have a problem because that is a security issue. Talk to Toshiba and let them know your problem. When you prove you own it, they should help you remove the password. Alternatively, take it to a computer store for service.

Black screen with password= in white writing

you have a bios or startup password ( assuming startup password ) so if you go into the bios of the laptops / computers and disable the startup and passwords ( except the bios password ) it should be fine.

Forgot password


On the Thinkpad's, it's a fairly easy process to reset the passwords. Try the following steps and you should be able to access the computer...

1. Power off the lpatop.
2. Flip the laptop over and open the Memory cover. It should have the diagram of a Dimm on it.
3. Short-circuit the two password pads or put a jumper on the contacts to short the circuit.
4. Remove the jumper, or whatever you used to short the password pads and put the cover back on the bottom of the laptop.
5. Power on the laptop and you should be fine.

Forgot startup password

For the Windows password you will need to reformat your hard drive. If that would not be done or if there is another way of removing the password without removing and reinstalling the operating system or of using your laptop by working around, windows password does not make sense at all. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Bios/startup password

yes, it will still be charged, to reset the bios password you need to locate the cmos battery on the motherboard and remove it for 10 mins or so, but where exactly the battery is situated, i'm not sure.
