Hello

as the bios was reset the harddrive password was removed from the bios memory.

To get the password unlocked you will need to remove the harddrive from the laptop, buy a adapter so you can connect it to your pc and then do a few things Il tell you about later if your going to do it.

otherwice you can take the harddrive to a shop to be unlocked / reset to defaults.

    with a shop I mean a PC repair center / shop with the required software and knowledge. NOT bestbuy, NOT wallmart. A real pc repair shop.



    but are you going to do this yourself?

  • Ekse May 10, 2008

    Windows/DOS unlock


    Note: This requires taking the laptop apart, which will void your warranty! - wont matter if you stole the laptop.


    1. Grab atapwd
    2. Create a bootable DOS floppy disk, and put atapwd.exe on it
    3. Remove the harddisk from your laptop and plug it into a standard PC, using a 3.5" => 2.5" IDE adapter
    4. Start up the pc with the bootdisk with atapwd in it
    5. start atapwd
    6. select the locked drive
    7. ... to be continued.

Toshiba Notebook PC's in the A105 series, and A135 series, suffered a lot of issues with asking for a HarDDrive password.

[ BIOS
Basic Input/Output System.
A small program contained in the BIOS chipset.

{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A Processor is an I.C.
Ram Memory uses I.C.'s on the sides. They are DRAM chips.
Just two examples of I.C.'s used in a personal computer }

When you power on your computer the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
{Simple explanation}

WinXP, and Win 7 are two examples of an O/S.

BIOS gave the harddrive in your laptop the moniker of HDD1.
If there was another harddrive installed also, it would be HDD2.
(HDD 1, HDD 2 ]

Reloading the O/S may, or May Not stop the request for the HDD1 password.
Most of the time? No.

Removing the CMOS battery (RTC Battery) will Not fix this issue.
{Real Time Clock}

It's a glitch in the BIOS program.
Toshiba is aware,

One solution (Besides Toshiba Support),

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/10/remove-clear-toshiba-laptop-bios/

{ NOTE*
When you go to perform a BIOS update, make SURE the power will not go out.
If the power goes out during upgrading, you will wind up with an expensive doorstop, or an ornament for a table.

A battery backup device of some sort is recommended }

Hello, I recently had a Toshiba Sattelite L455 that suddenly promped for a BIOS password on startup. There was never a bios password set for this laptop. So I found a workaround using the onboard...


You hit the correct jumpers for this model to remove the motherboard bios lock, which shows you have done your homework well. Toshiba, like Dell set a bios lock and HDD lock on some laptops for security reasons, often when the cmos battery needs changing, it manifests itself.

As to why you got this request for a bios pass is very odd, if you did not change the cmos battery, however, removing the battery as you state would not fix the hard drive problem. The hard drive will remain locked and if, as I suspect, it is a security measure, you will not be able to remove it and externally access files or even format it by slaving it in another computer or docking station.

Your best solution would be to contact a Toshiba service centre and explain the problem and ask them for a bios unlock code. IF this was installed at the factory, they should be able to remove it (you WILL be asked to provide proof of ownership)

I have heard of some laptops being "time locked", which is where the time/ date settings in the bios trigger a request for a bios password for security purposes, but never actually seen this occur. This might explain why the bios pass request appeared randomly as it did. There is the possibility that this was caused by a virus, although, again, I've never heard of this happening.

Can I reset the HDD1 user password on Toshiba satellite?


If the password was set on the hard disk from the laptop that it was install on, then you can reset or remove the hard drive password using the BIOS configuration, you need to enter the existing hard drive password to this.
There are no back door paswords available, if you ca't remove the password then the drive is useless. This protection is use to prevent unauthorized access to data stored on the hard drive.

To get the laptop operational again you need to replace the hard drive and install Windows again.

If the BIOS and the Hard Drive are locked, it's not something you should be attempting yourself. Toshiba would be the people to approach, at one of their dealerships. If the laptop is still under warranty they should unlock it for free, if not there will be a charge. You will also need to prove ownership of the laptop before they can proceed, so remember to take that documentation with you.
