Windows 7 is one of the more secure versions of windows.

If you did whats known as a "factory" restore then the password will also have been reset to the default.

If you did just a staged restore back to a date when you were one of the users then the password should still be the same.

Windows 7 does offer you the option of making a password reset disc and if you did not do that then you would need to try log in with the admin account.

The default on most (but not all) is username = Administrator and the password is either empty or = admin or administrator

If that fails you could try by downloading UBCD or a copy of HIRENS boot CD
UBCD is here

This has password reset tools etc

Burn it on a clean computer and then boot from the CD itself to get access o the reset programs.

Hope you get it sorted

Toshiba has had a problem with their laptops locking out the system with a BIOS password. They are providing support for some of their users if you call them by Oct 31 2010. I have been able to get 2 laptops fixed by Toshiba because of this problem.

The down side of this is that you have to send them your laptop so they can do the repair.

Hope this helps

I got a new Toshiba L455-S5009 with Windows 7 (64 bit) pre-installed. I want to install Windows Xp. Everytime I run Windows xp installation cd it gives blue screen of death and stops the installation....

I would strongly recommend against downgrading to Windows XP. The hardware in your machine is designed to run and perform at it's best on the newer operating systems Vista/7. You may run into several issues trying to actually locate drivers for your machine.

I have looked on the Toshiba's support site for your particular model and some of the critical drivers are not listed for Windows Xp (sound,video,LAN,wireless)

Not to mention the fact that your system is running a 64 bit processor and you are going to be downgrading to a 32bit operating system and not utilizing your processor's potential.

To answer your question though it is most likely because your system needs a driver for the hard drive controller that is not included on the Windows XP installation media. I did search on the for a controller driver but was not able to find one. Can't say with 100% certainty that is why you are receiving the BSOD but most likely the case
