I have a Toshiba P500 Bios is bypassed.Now it shows Enter HDD1 Password ??? hdd type fujitsu mja2320bh


You don't realize this, but the problem you are running up against, is that Toshiba has the best security in the business.


If you had stolen someone's laptop, and you needed to bypass a BIOS password in order to make the stolen laptop usable, would and SHOULD it really be as simple as you are making it out to be? No. It should not.

Toshiba has been leading the pack in this kind of security for years now. The only way to reset the BIOS password on THAT laptop, is to send it back to Toshiba.


Now, do you know what Toshiba will do next? Toshiba will ONLY send the laptop back to the current registered owner.



So, here is what you do. If the previous owner registered their laptop with Toshiba,

THEY have to transfer the ownership to you... you can't do that. THEN, you can send it back to Toshiba to have the BIOS password cleared.

THEN Toshiba will send it back, repaired, to you.

You cannot jump the BIOS chip, since the password is not stored there, but rather it is stored in an EPROM chip that does not require electricity.

So you cannot even remove the CMOS battery to clear the password.


You cannot use a special program and a floppy disc, because that Toshiba will not access the floppy disc before it accesses the BIOS... and since you will hit the password first, you can't access that software to try to clear the password


or you might try


restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

Reboot the computer As the computer is booting repeatadly press the F8 key as the computer is booting


If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
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)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
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


Then type at the C:\> prompt: type

DEBUG

and hit Enter. You'll see a dash (-) at the DEBUG prompt. Now type:

o 70 2e

which will show as -o 70 2e at the DEBUG prompt. Hit Enter. Then type:

o 71 ff

and hit Enter. Finally type:

Q

and hit Enter one last time to quit DEBUG back to the C:\> prompt.
Now you're ready to reboot your PC, and press the appropriate key or key
combo (look it up in your motherboard manual if you don't know it) to access
your BIOS Setup.


Youll notice the password is gone.


if this fails try typing


At command prompt type debug
you will get a - prompt where you can type the following (<enter> means press enter, not type enter*)

A <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>
MOV AX,CX <ENTER>
OUT 70,AL <ENTER>
MOV AX,0 <ENTER>
OUT 71,AL <ENTER>
INC CX <ENTER>
CMP CX,100 <ENTER>
JB 103 <ENTER>
INT 20 <ENTER>
<ENTER> just hit enter on this line
G <ENTER>
Q <ENTER>

Basic BIOS password works 9.9 times out of ten

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

the portable vault programs that come with the USB type flash drives have no give and take, you can recover the drive by deleting the files.

for the password, you need to know it. but there is a way to get an unlimited number of tries. back up all the files to a folder on the hard drive, the program will refuse to run from there but that also means the counter isnt counting. run the original and atempt the passwords. when you think you have used the max tries then delete the files and restore from your back copy and continue trying.

The sandisk flashdrive has on the fly encryption. It encrypts it all the time when you remove it and then decrypts it all the time when you insert it unless you have a password. It's possible that sandisk has not encountered the different environment of windows 7 and did not make flashdrives ready for that os.

Seagate Free Agent 1.5TB doesn't encrypt


I was fumbling around with this as well. I found a manual on my external drive itself. I had to read through it carefully before i saw a small note.

Note: After you open your Encryption folder on the first computer and user account with which
you use Seagate Manager, it will be saved on that computer so that will never need to
enter it again. When opening your Encryption folder from another computer or user
account, however, you will need to enter your password.

I have yet to test it by creating another user account, then attempting to access the files. I am confident that this is the answer.
