Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook

Requires password on start up

My Dads Toshiba A60 has not been charged for ages and when I went to check it out for him I had to re-enter the date and time. After that it says to press F1, once I pressed that it is asking for a password. Do not know what this password is, can anyone help.

    Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately we have tried using the restore disk, nothing happens and still goes to black screen asking for password.



    We have tried pressing keys to take to another menu but again nothing happens. On start up the Toshiba logo appears and then goes straight to black screen asking for password. Pressing keys does not seem to work either.

You have a bios lock and the only oe who can open this is your father , unless you have your operating system disk
but using this will erase ard drive and all data will be lost , but can be reloaded via system disk
hope this helped

    tony sorry that didnt help but my next step is just what cheekychop posted





    Run computer in safe mode press f8 on start up, then using the control panel you can turn the password off under the user accounts section.


    if that doesnt work then , my next thing would be to pull the hard drive

Turn on your Toshiba > press F8 repeatedly >>> Select SAFE MODE >>> ( if you are not sure what went wrong >>> Click yes on system restore >>> ) (it will restore yoour system to the date previously you select >>> let says 1 month earlier)
Your unit will restart automatic

If your unit keeps restart after enter the safe mode >>> Insert Windows vista CD/DVD >> boot with it

Toshiba a60-155. keep getting press f1 setup screen. have to enter date. keys 1 and 2 don't seem to work. can I bypass this page


Don't think you can bypass this thing because the RTC (Real Time Clock) battery is, most likely, dead. But if you can replace the just the keyboard, then you'll still have a working computer. I'd leave the RTC battery alone and use software (such as Atomic Clock Sync) to set the date and time automatically every time the computer boots into Windows.

Tochiba Satellite A60 VGA Driver


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

How do I fing toshiba A60 equium password


Hi,
pull the battery out and leave it out for a few minutes and then put it back in - if you can reach the bios then reset optimum settings - if there is a windows password then reformatting will get rid of that one.

Turn on, asks for password, computer works for a min & blank scre


If you keep pressing F8 before Windows starts to load it should display a menu, if you choose "safe mode" it may then load into Windows. If you're using WinXP you can try a system restore - click start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. It should display a calendar. Click on any date in bold and restore to that date. It may solve the problem for you. Did you install a new game or anything just before it went wrong?
