Question about Computers & Internet

I can't access to the welcome screen. It talks about some kind of hard drive. What I don't know is how to get past the blackscreen with codes at the start. One of the problem causers is the frequent use of the recovery disc.

If you are unable to access your welcome screen, and it is giving you a hard drive related error, it may be possible either your operating system is corrupt or your hard drive has failed. If you have already tried your recovery disc, your hard drive itself may be at fault.

First, verify that there are no discs in any drives, such as floppy or CD and then try to turn your computer on. If you cannot get to your welcome screen and you get an error about your hard drive, try using your recovery discs. If that doesn't work, you most likely have a faulty piece of hardware in your system, most likely your hard drive.

How do you unlock a computer


What's locked on it? There are three passwords that can be set on a computer. 1) Bios Password, 2) Hard Drive Password & 3) Windows Welcome Screen User Logon Password. Which one are you talking about?

If you're talking about the Hard Drive Password, then 99% of the time it's a stolen laptop. If you're smart enough to set the hard drive password, you're smart enough to remember it. The Hard Drive Password is set the by original owner to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. Sometimes the original turns on the Hard Drive Password remotely once the laptop is stolen. The only way to break the code is for the original owner to put the password in. The stolen laptop is useless to the thieves without the Hard Drive Password.

M9500f gets into blackscreen at startup with blinking cursor at top left of screen. F11 (system recovery) don't work.


It is having issues booting from the hard drive, there could be a simple file corruption issue or a hard drive issue.
You will need to get hold of recovery discs or a windows disc to attempt to repair it.

Toshiba laptop hdd1/ssd1 password i don't know


You can try calling Toshiba's laptop support line but they will require proof of ownership. If they can't get it removed then your only option is to get a new hard drive. Reason is because when a hard drive password is put on a hard drive its programmed into the circuitry in the hard drive so if you don't remember the password then you can't get past that screen.

I can't get access to my computer's welcome screen. I think it has something to do with the hard drive. I can't get past the black screen with codes. It says NTLDR missing. What can I do? What does it...


Try pressing F8 after you turn on the system, I suggest tapping it because each system has a window to recognize the keystroke. This should bring you to OS selection, choose last known good configuration, and if that doesnt work choose safemode and update, reinstall any missing file reported.

Boot up


The "boot from USB" has to be disabled in your BIOS. If you don't know how, try to put the disk in another USB port - it might work.
