    if it were a desktop I could help you, but since it is a laptop I do not know how to reset the bios passwords on laptops. It is most likely specific to your laptop so head on over to the manufacturers website and look for a maintenance manual that will tell you how to do that.

Cannot help with that as the password is set by the owner and can be any combination of letters, numbers or characters. If it it the hdd password,purchase a new hdd if you cannot remember it. There is no way around that one.

How do i find my hdd security password


Hi,

As a technical support for a computer manufacturer, HDD Security Password which is asked upon computer boot up process cannot be retrieved unless you remember what it was. This HDD as well cannot be reformatted as you will be asked for the Password upon doing so. Resolution to the problem is to replace the HDD. Files can no longer be retrieved as well in this case.

Had a problem with Toshiba Satellite A205-S5800. Could not remember password, or the laptop created a new password after 3 tries at trying to remember. Ran recovery disc, and now the HDD password box...


Power the laptop off. Unplug it. Remove the battery. Turn it over. Open the bottom panels. Look for a small battery. Unplug this battery. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. RE-Assemble everything. Turn it back on - hopefully it has cleared the settings and you will be prompted to enter the BIOS.
