Unlock HDD


it's is locked because it is password protected. if it's not for you, ask the owner for the password.

Even if you enter the BIOS and attempts to remove the HDD password, You will still need to produce the password before you can disable it.

Laptop will not turn on with power cord. Battery light shows but laptop will not boot up. Have double checked all connections. Seems to be locked. Have used lock key on the left and ensured laptop is...


Check AC Adapter/Cables if it is plugged in properly.

Restart system and try going entering the BIOS.

if you cant enter the BIOS
try reseating the memory.

If you cant go the windows
the system more than likely needs a hardware repair.

I recently purchased A aspire 5515 series notebook pc I locked


Depends on what you mean by "locked" it.

Most forms of locking a laptop require you to have entered a password in the 1st place, if it is asking for a password after the CTRL/ALT/DEL (I assume you have windows) then its your windows password.

If it's when you first turn on the laptop then it's probably a BIOS password, if this is the case then it could be anything at all!
The only answer to this is to wipe the BIOS memory & start again, if this is the case then I can give instructions for this but it does mean removing covers etc.

Let me know how you get on

Cheers

Phoenix bios password


The thing is that somebody set bios password. On phoenix bios based on intel platform? like yours normally if you will enter bios password incorrectly 3 times bios will lock the computer and it will generate 12 digit lock code. You will need to contact Toshiba technical support to get bios unlock password. (Normally this is generated by them within couple of hours.)
I would recommend you to check with toshiba support before locking bios (entering password incorrectly 3 times)
