SYSTEM SETUP OR BOOT MENU FOR TOSHIBA A40

I forgot my Windows login password. However, I understand I can reset it by expanding the Security tree and selecting Admin Password. However, I am not sure as to which function key (i.e. F8, F12 etc.) I should select. Is it possible to access the setup or boot menu? The operating system is Windows XP. Do you know of any other way to reset the password?

Restart the computer,

Right after the Toshiba logo appears start tapping the F8 key.

You will get an option to start in Safe Mode.

Select this option and let the computer start in Safe Mode.

If given the option you will want to log in as Administrator.

After you are logged in you will want to go to the Control Panel and then click on the Users link.

Select your account and choose to remove the password.

Reboot the computer and you should be able to access your account.

Forgot window xp password to login for my Toshiba Satellite a105 s2194 system unit Model PsAA5U-00Z01C


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode. XP only.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

I forgot my password my omnibookxe3on windows for


If you forgot your password and the answer to your security question then no, you won't be able to login with that account.
There are free tools on the internet that you can use to reset your password with. Search for linux based windows password recovery tool and you'll get a long list of them.
Depending on the version of windows there is a boot option that at the windows loading screen you can press F8 to login as the system administrator which you can reset the password for your user account from there.

I can't log onto windows on my toshiba 3005-S304 system unit forgot password


What OS are you having?

Here are the solutions to reset windows password on different systems:

On XP you can try this:
Boot computer and press Ctrl+Alt+Delete twice when you See Windows welcome screen / login screen. It'll show classic login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in username field and leave password field blank, press Enter and you should be able to login Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".

On Win 7 or Vista:
Ctrl+Alt+Delete won't work, you have to use some windows password recovery software. I recommend Windows Password Recovery Tool

You may reset the password on your own.

Windows Password Recovery is right what you need in your case.

Here are the step by step tutorial, pretty easy, I am sure you can handle it!

Step 1: Download Windows Password Recovery and install it on another computer.

Step 3: Put it into the CD-ROm and restart your locked computer. Change the BIOS setting of your locked computer to make it boot from the CD-ROM or USB drive. Note: start computer and press F2 or Delete to enter BISO setup
Step 4: Boot your locked computer from the created disk and remove your forgotten password. GOOD LUCK!

Administer password


If you have windows XP, boot the computer in safe mode. When you start the computer keep tapping the F8 key to the advanced boot menu. Select safe mode. It would give you the login screen. Select Administrator, do not enter any password, if you can get through, it means that you did not setup a password for the system administrator. Once you get to the safe mode window with the icons, you go to start, control panel, user accounts, select the user account that you used to login and delete the password. You can retype a password again and exit out of the window and restart the computer. You would be good to go.

If you have windows vista, and you have created the password reset disc, you can use that to reset the password. You need to boot the computer with that disc. if not, you need to run the system recovery on your computer.
