Question about Dell Pentium 4, 2.26 GHz (1W391)
Help! I haven't used my computer for about six months. Today, when I tried to use it again, the computer will not allow me to enter my password to log on at startup, instead it says 'more than seven attempts have been made' and then it powers down again. What is wrong?
IF YOU TALK ABOUT A NOTEBOOK AND THE BIOS PASSWORD, CONTINUE READING THIS, otherwise if you are talking about operative system pass or PC... please let me know what os are you using to tell you explain that.
It seems that someone else has tryed to use your computer... what you should do is the following. Firs of all, some notebooks have a little well hidden button to reset BIOS, you notebook manual should tell you so, if not you should disassemble your notebook, so you will need very much help... I can guide you but first I must know if I understood you.
If you have a PC and its the bios password you are talking about, just open the case, remove all cables and let the case alone, take the lithium battery out for 30 minutes and start the system again, the bios will be in zero point so no password will be asked... Mother also has a jumper that resets the bios if you change its possition for a couple of minutes... you can see that in the manual (that jumper is called CMOS jumper).
If your problem is Windows or any OS password there are some things you can do, but please let me know first to guide you well.

The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.
During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.
This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.
The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.
You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.
This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.
Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.
Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.
Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.
Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.
Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.
Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.
Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.
Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.
Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.
Hope this helps
