Most Toshiba laptops you need an adapter that jumps several wires across the Parallel port which triggers the BIOS to reset. You can purchase those online at places like EBAY.

Toshiba Notebook PC's in the A105 series, and A135 series, suffered a lot of issues with asking for a HarDDrive password.

[ BIOS
Basic Input/Output System.
A small program contained in the BIOS chipset.

{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A Processor is an I.C.
Ram Memory uses I.C.'s on the sides. They are DRAM chips.
Just two examples of I.C.'s used in a personal computer }

When you power on your computer the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
{Simple explanation}

WinXP, and Win 7 are two examples of an O/S.

BIOS gave the harddrive in your laptop the moniker of HDD1.
If there was another harddrive installed also, it would be HDD2.
(HDD 1, HDD 2 ]

Reloading the O/S may, or May Not stop the request for the HDD1 password.
Most of the time? No.

Removing the CMOS battery (RTC Battery) will Not fix this issue.
{Real Time Clock}

It's a glitch in the BIOS program.
Toshiba is aware,

One solution (Besides Toshiba Support),

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/10/remove-clear-toshiba-laptop-bios/

{ NOTE*
When you go to perform a BIOS update, make SURE the power will not go out.
If the power goes out during upgrading, you will wind up with an expensive doorstop, or an ornament for a table.

A battery backup device of some sort is recommended }

The BIOS can't access the hdd because the controller of it has been put behind a password. If you haven't done that then he hdd controller has did it on its own - your hdd is indeed dead. Replace it and reinstall.

You've probably got to have your computer configured to boot from a rescue CD before it can recognize and install the new harddrive. Also make sure that there is an operating system installed on the hard drive . If not it will not do anything until you install one. This will be automatic if you install a new XP or Vista DVD into the computer's DVD drive the reboot.

Can I reset the HDD1 user password on Toshiba satellite?


If the password was set on the hard disk from the laptop that it was install on, then you can reset or remove the hard drive password using the BIOS configuration, you need to enter the existing hard drive password to this.
There are no back door paswords available, if you ca't remove the password then the drive is useless. This protection is use to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on the hard drive.

To get the laptop operational again you need to replace the hard drive and install Windows again.

FixYa is a free service and advice is given freely by its members but for some services there is a charge.
