If you have the restore discs, you may be able to use an external disc drive (i.e., USB).

If your BIOS will recognize it on startup, you will need to configure the boot order. A message should appear telling you what key to press when booting on your BIOS splash screen (you need to watch for it, it disappears quickly), generally this is F10 or something similar.

If your computer will not recognize an external disc drive, you may be able to get a new disc drive from Toshiba by calling their support.

Forgot user password


Hi I'm Peter , You can change your user password by going in with your administrator password. Here are a few helps https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid and see
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1274 and



and Kappys answer
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4251616?start=0&tstart=0





In OS X Lion or later, you can reset your user password with your Apple ID.

In Mac OS X v10.6.8 or earlier, follow these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset. "Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above. These steps require an optical drive; if your Mac does not have an optical drive and you have a Mac OS X v10.6 Install disc, see below.

  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.

    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.

    Note
    : The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  4. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  5. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  6. Hope this helps.

I forgot my owner/user password & cant get into my computer.


if no password recovery disc, stick or note, you may need to take the hard drive out and put it in another computer to backup the data and then reinstall operating system. or perform a factory default restore after backing up data if the data is important.

Notebook only goes to f2 or f12 wont boot


If you can't get passed the F2, F12 then maybe the keys are disabled.. Windows does this sometimes. To release just hit "F".. if that doesn't do the trick then probably drive is corrupt..
You will need to restore using restore disc if you have one.

Hi I have a problem. I forgot my password to log in and need to reset my password on my laptop. I didn't create a password reset disk, so I can't use a USB flash drive to reset it.


If you have Win XP, when you start up your computer, hold down the F8 key. A boot menu will appear. Select Safe Mode. If you click your user name, an "administrator" user will appear in the list of users on your system. If you type in your user name, type "administrator", there is no password required. Once you are logged in as administrator, go to the User control panel and click your normal user name and click change password, create a password and you'll all set. If you use Win Vista, there is no way to recover your password. If you have system restore discs, use them to restore your system, remember, all your personal files will be lost and your computer will return to its original factory default settings.
