Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4777 Notebook
When I switch on my laptop it prompts me for my BIOS password as usual. However, after I swipe my finger, the laptop shows the windows bar at the bottom of the screen for a few seconds and then goes to a black screen where it just stays. I've tried using the recovery media but my laptop just says "windows is loading files" and then repeats the same start up process as before (without prompting for the Bios password this time).
Its sounds either your windows has been currepted or you have some missing driver/software wich cause re-start.
If it even does not boot in safe mode, then i think you should re-install windows.
Thanks & good luck

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Start Windows Normally
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice
select safe mode with command prompt
Click start run type cmd press Enter

this will vary depending on your operating system
type in net user username
For eg. If you want to change administrator password , type net user Administrator
It will prompt you to enter the new password.
Enter the new password and the password is changed
if this fails you will need to
Select safe mode with networking to download
you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password
A CMOS BIOS password recovery tool
Editors note: This tool should only be used by experienced computer users. Please see the enclosed read me if you would like to run it from Windows. Failure to follow instructions (from Windows) will cause your anti-virus to flag this as a virus.
