    Thanks for the quick reply. The password is entered in a blue box with 8 charachters which is done with numbers in my case. they only thing i have done lately is transfer lots of pics and videos to an external hard drive because the disc was almost full but that was 3 days ago and this seems to have happened yesterday... the other thing i did was change the power mode as in the laptop would turn itself off afetr say 30 mins... i changed the setting so it had to be turned off manually.. would this have caused the problem?

This must be the Bios Password asking you to enter. But did you do anything with it? Sometimes this happens itself when the Bios is bad or the motherboard is old.

If you haven't changed or if you haven't done anything with the bios settings and messed up, then the password should "toshiba" (without quotes and small letters only).

If this doesn't work, you'll have to go a long way to reset the bios password. Will need to disassemble the laptop and remove the bios the battery or to short two small contacts.

First try with the default generic password and let me know if you need further help.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    I don't think those changes are the cause, but it's indefinite, and I can't make it sure since many laptop used to ask for password without any reason and in most cases, they'd automatically reset or would not ask on the next start up or after unplugging/remove/uninstalling power chord/rams/hard disk respectively. The only last option is to disassemble it and take out the bios battery and again reinstall it after it's left outside for few minutes.




    With old toshiba laptops, it was possible to work with wires on the Parallel port, but it's no longer applicable on newer models.




    There a small bios reset tool called keydisk for toshiba laptops, but honestly, i haven't tried it as I just open apart and work with the motherboard to reset it. If you wanna try, with keydisk (click here to download). I don't have the tutorial on how to use this, but i found this while googling and have saved it on my pc for several years if in case it's badly needed. If I am right, it's installed on a usb drive or flopping drive and boot from the drive. Let me try to find a tutorial or instructions about this tool.




    Good luck.

When I turn the laptop on I see the Toshiba screen for just a second and then it instantly goes to this lovely black screen that says password= How this got there I have know idea. Can anyone help?


Dear beanbean,
This "lovely black screen" is a BIOS password screen. This shows up because somebody has set a boot-up password in the BIOS Setup. If you're lucky, the BIOS Setup is still unprotected, and you can access it as follows:
When you turn it on, look for something that says "Press [button] to enter Setup" or "Press [button] to enter Setup Utilities." Press the corresponding button on your keyboard, and you should enter BIOS Setup.

Now two things can happen. Either you are permitted to access Setup, or you are prompted for the password.
If you can access Setup, navigate to the Security tab and clear all set passwords.If not... then you can either reset BIOS by unplugging the computer, taking off the back, and removing the CMOS Battery (unrecommended), or you can call Toshiba support and ask for the master password (Most manufacturers have a master password, which will allow you to access Setup and remove the boot-up password)
Hope this helps,Ericthecmh

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.

Toshiba satellite laptop lockout


is it a windows password or poweron password? you must be wondering what are they?
windows password is when you have to enter the password to get into windows and before that you get to see the windows loading screen.
poweron password is hard to crack, it will ask a password on a black screen saying Enter a Password, and the background will be completely black in color.
if its a windows password, press the "Alt+Ctrl+Del" twice, you'll get a screen which will ask you a username and password. in the username and password type in, "Administrator" and password will be blank. hit enter. if it works, then for the rest of the steps, mail me at L2support.hp@gmail.com

Format the disk to be BOOTABLE using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.
Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you’ll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you’re asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.

I'm not clear on your description, so here goes:

If it showed the Toshiba start screen, then asked for a password, then your hard drive is password protected.

If it showed the Toshiba screen, then asked for password, and you entered it, and then it goes "insert disk", then your hard drive is passworded and wiped.

If the first thing it does is ask for a password, then the password is in the BIOS.
