If this computer has Windows XP on it, you can start it in safe mode and log on as administrator. Most people never bothered to set a password for the administrator account. If you can do this, you're in! If not, well--we'd have to go through a different process but you'd need a system disk.

I have a Toshiba Tecra 8100 notebook someone gave to me, it asks for a password, and I don't have it. How do I reset it?


You may not need to reset it. Have you tried hitting enter? I have had a number of Toshiba's and never wanted a password so I just got around it by hitting the enter key with no password..

Oh..that one is hard to do specially to novice. I would suggest not to do it. It would be hard for you to dismantle your laptop bit by bit and it is very risky. You might it end up damaging your laptop. Take it to a qualified technician to get it done. okay..:-)

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.

If it's a tecra 8100 model, the power on password can be removed. You can either make your own parallel port adapter that will short out the password (I've done that), or you can buy one (like on ebay) and that'll get your bios password removed.
