Passwords is a very delicate thing that I prefer not to explain how to hack unless I am convinced that you are the owner of the computer, but if the password is on the OS then you can enter in safe mode by pressing several times at the F8 key while the computer turns loads

Forgot my password on my toshiba satellite a65

If you are talking about the user account password ..and you forgot it , now you will need to reinstall the operation system ..cause there is no way to retrieve that password..
to do that engage the recovery partition for it ..and choose complete reinstall of operation system ..If you do not have one ..(or disk ) ..use a operation system boot-able one ..Just borrow one ..or buy ..or download an image and burn one ..and reinstall your computer and will work .
let me know if you have any questions or need guidance for that too ..Please explain all facts if you do ..

Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4

The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

I bought a laptop and put password to sign in but its been a while the last time i use my laptop, now i tried to sign in but i forgot my password

The only way you can get back into the system at this point, unless you remember the PW, is to reinstall windows with the option to keep structure intact, this will install a fresh copy of windows while keeping your files safe. The other option you have is to reformat the drive and start fresh. But of course you will loose the files that are already on the system but it will at least allow you to use the computer again. Next time I suggest you do as I do, someone who forgets PW's all the time is buy a memory stick and keep all passwords on it, you might want to password this also but if you forget it also, then your're still stuck, so use one you will allways remember no matter what. Or purchase a program called password keeper.

I bought a Toshiba Satellite L505D-S6952 at A swap meet.They didnt tell me the Password -now I cant find them and I cant use my laptop because I cant bypass the password. please can you help me????

Sure are you looking for the bios password or the OS password?
If your looking for the OS password you can use an program that is advailble on line to recover the password, this will cost you money to get.
I would say to buy the OS cd and reload the system..

You can order replacement cd's from them, or just go buy an OS cd from your computer shop.
