This is a feature in newer laptops, to protect the files on a "stolen" laptop from being accessed by the thief.

If you have set a password, enter the password.

If you have not set a password, did one of your friends/family set a password?

If no password has been set, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Reinsert the battery.
Restart the computer, and see if it still asks for the password.

Turned on laptop and message? appeared: Please Enter Built-in HDD1 User Password [ ]


Hard drive password security has been enabled. If you do not know who did it or what the password is you are limited in options. Most times this requires a new hard drive and OS.

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.
