Lost password flow chart

If you have lost the administrator password, you cannot adjust system settings and there is not much you can do about it bar purchasing a dodgy disc to find your password. Flea bay can supply one.

Toshiba satellite c660 lost password

Lost windows password?

Do you have another valid administrator account which can normally log on? If so, you can log on as the administrator to change the account you forgotten.

Or,you can think about the Windows Password Reset , it is very usefull and convenient.

I want to restore a satellite pro L450D to factory settings

If you no longer remember the password that you entered when you set up the computer initially, that is a serious problem or impediment. You'll need to get into the administrator account with the stored password to recover to factory settings. Otherwise, a clean install of the windows operating system can be performed with the key printed on the sticker on the laptop, from a disc for windows, but it may stop you from doing that unless you have a full version of the windows install disc, and you have a formatted drive that is blank.

I have a toshiba satellie pro (A105), I forgot my password, now I want to restore to factory settings (im order not to loose the genuinity of my windows)..... I dont have any recovery CD, what do I do?


If you have Windows XP press CTRL+ALT+DEL at the login screen.
A new login screen will appear. Login using Username: Administrator and Password: password
This will log you into the Admin account.
You can then go to the user account in the control panel and reset the password for your user account.

Hope this helps!

I forgot my administrator password on my toshiba lapto a135-s2276, how do i re-boot my laptop to factory setting? be advice that my recovery cd that came with the laptop broke.

You might be able to boot the computer up in safe mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly as soon as you power the machine on until you see a screen that will give you that option. Once the logon screen appears try typing Administrator for the login name and leave the password field blank. There is a "hidden" admin account by default just in case you "forget" your password. This feature can be disabled, however, so it may not work. If that's the case, my suggestion would be to contact Toshiba's customer support dept., explain your situation, and ask them to send you a new Windows OS disk. There are other ways to gwt around the password, but you really asked how to restore your laptop to factory default settings, so I'll leave it at that.
