SOURCE: Satelite a100 bios password

How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.
Reasoning: IBM compatible users may need to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup to setup or change how their computer's hardware is currently configured.
Solution: Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password please see document CH000235.
New computers Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot.

A user will know when to press this key when they see a message similar to the below example as the computer is booting. Some older computers may also display a flashing block to indicate when to press the F1 or F2 keys.
Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup
Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding any key on the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.

If the above steps didnt work can do this:

start
control panel
user account
Click on : Computer Administrator

Good Luck hope this gets ya back on line

SOURCE: my toshiba laptop is a black screen asking for a password.

hi friend,

If you have lost or forgotten the XP administrator password, first reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" without the quotes.

You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.

Just click the administrators user account, and then click Reset Password.

You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.

All done, you have recovered the lost administrators password! Source(s): http://www.hsinlin.com/tips/lost_passwor…

If it’s a BIOS password then there are several ways to do it, on older Toshiba's there is a “key” that you put in the parallel port to unlock it, or you can remove the BIOS battery (with the main battery and the mains out) then short out the pins for a few seconds (sometimes you have to strip down the base of the laptop to get to it, maybe half to an hours work if you know what you’re doing). If it has been written to a fixed memory, you’re stuffed and need to contact Toshiba with proof that it’s yours.
If it’s an XP / Vista user account password then you can either log in as Admin using safe mode (F8), or, as happens sometimes) you’ve removed/disabled the Admin account or forgotten ITS password as well then you need to clear the user account password file (ther are a number of programs that do this, I know which ones I prefer, others may have different choices)
If you’re still stuck let me know.
thank u for using fixya regards, sivaranjini

The BIOS and Supervisor passwords cannot be removed or changed unless you know the existing password(s). If you forget your BIOS or Supervisor password, you will have to have the password removed by a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider

Hi, i have a toshiba l305 laptop i often to ask hdd password to open. but i am scared to have it, as well more difficult for me to rebuilt


The hard disk password is used to protect data on your hard disk.
If the hard disk is moved to another laptop the hard disk cannot be access unless you enter the password.
To remove the hard disk, go into your laptop BIOS configuration - security - BIOS & Hard disk password - go to hard disk password - remove password (you need to enter the hard disk password to get permission to remove this password).

You can remove a BIOS password by removing the CMOS battery for about 1/2 hour. Find a manual on your system to help, if you don't know where it is.

This is a known issue with some newer Toshiba laptops. The laptop can set the BIOS password on its own and I believe it happens because of a glitch in the BIOS.

Be sure to go to the Toshiba website and get all the updates for your model, once you're back in.

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.

Toshiba notebook HDD problem


I think you may find your hard drive has failed? I suggest that you replace the hard drive with a new one. But, just to check.. remove the hard Drive from the machine... (usually acessable under the machine via a couple of screws and usually just slides out etc) Then try to "Boot" the machine from CD or floppy.. (on say ya Windows XP CD, choosing Boot from CD from PC menu) if it does.. then it IS ya HD, if not then ya may have a Motherboard fault. So do NOT change the drive.. at this juncture I would suggest ya go to a reputable PC repairer and ask for a "Quote" for the fix, and an explanation of what is/was wrong.
