Hi,
i reckon i can help you sort this Problem Out.
I,ll give it My best Shot.
The First Thing To do Is To turn off the power, and remove the battery.
Then Remove the Hard-Drive, Should Be In A Drive-Bay Underneath.

    Ok,

    so now you have the hard-drive out yes.

    Put The Battery Back On, Plug In Mains Charger.

    Leave Hard-Drive out.

  • Mike Waldron Mar 04, 2008

    Then Boot/Start The Laptop And Push F2 Key while Starting Up, This Will Take You To the bios Screen.

  • Mike Waldron Mar 04, 2008

    Let Me Know, if you get there Ok.

    Mike.

  • Mike Waldron Mar 04, 2008

    Ok,

    put windows xp disk or operating system didk in cd/dvd drive.

  • Mike Waldron Mar 04, 2008

    I,m having a look for you now for the simple bootup keys.

    this is usually done with the disk i have, so i,m trying to work other ways round for you.

    Mike.

  • Mike Waldron Mar 04, 2008

    Ok,

    heres what you need to do.

    you have to enter the bios screen, as soon as you power on push F2 Or fn/F2 And enter Bios Setup.

    Then when you get into Bios. You have to tell the Computer to Boot first From The CD Or Floppy Disk Drive.

  • Mike Waldron Mar 04, 2008

    No Problem,

    Sorry turn off, put hard-drive back in, and restart with windows disk in drive.

    If you,re into the Bios we,ve got a great chance.

    Mike.

Answer to your question


You will need to get into the bios, and set the CD drive to boot before the hard drive. Since your in this uncompromising loop, remove the hard drive, then start the machine. It should go to the initial Toshiba screen and you will see the prompt on what to press to get to the bios, or utility set up. Once your in the bios, find the boot order and set the CD drive over the hdd. Then put the hdd back in, the recovery or operating system disc in the CD drive, and start the machine. It should now boot from the disc. At this point you will want to do a system repair. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hdd, and install a new operating system. If the hdd will not format or you have any issues during or after the install, then the hdd has failed and will need replaced. If you need any futher aststance, just ask.

Hi,
Put the password In.
this Will solve This Problem for You :)
Alternatively Install a new hard-drive and re-install Windows et,c.
Or send the hard-drive to be unlocked Or data recovered.
The only other Option, is To purchase A software tools Disk from me, And you,ll Probably unlock it That way.
