Question about Toshiba Satellite 5105-S501 Notebook
If there is no option to change boot sequence outside of the bios there are very few options left. Most laptops allow for changing the boot sequence at start up without going into Bios by pressing F10 or F8 when you see the initial splash screen. If you can't get into Bios because of forgotten password you can search the internet for LCrack which is a free download that will, in most cases, allow you access to the passwords on the computer to include Bios. If this fails look for a reset switch on the bottom. This will be a small hole that you use a toothpick to press the reset button inside. If that is not present you can try removing the battery and the power cord then holding the Power button down for 30 secs. This is a back door reset that works on some systems. If all of these fail to rest the Bios password then you are left with opening the computer, removing the CMOS battery and then putting it all back together. If you just need to boot from the CD and not access the hard drive then you can remove the hard Drive and force the system to boot from another device but you won't be able to install the hard drive after the computer boots. It won't recognize it and will most likely damage the drive if you try.
