First of all, when you tray to unlock it with gmail, you must be near to WiFi network that you used before (you must have connection to the internet).
Second, if your WiFi connection is turned off from before, you can't unlock it with your google account.
Next step is to try wipe data / factory reset from android recovery menu. Press and hold VolUp+PowerON or, VolDn+PowerOn, or any combination like this with PowerOn button. But you will lost all your data.

How do I uninstall poweron password?

Not sure I understand your poweron password issue. Is this within BIOS, or a program you installed in Windows?
If BIOS, then I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool can be effective.:
Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords biospasswordrecovery. com

Toshiba satellite laptop lockout

is it a windows password or poweron password? you must be wondering what are they?
windows password is when you have to enter the password to get into windows and before that you get to see the windows loading screen.
poweron password is hard to crack, it will ask a password on a black screen saying Enter a Password, and the background will be completely black in color.
if its a windows password, press the "Alt+Ctrl+Del" twice, you'll get a screen which will ask you a username and password. in the username and password type in, "Administrator" and password will be blank. hit enter. if it works, then for the rest of the steps, mail me at

My laptop poweron password forget

login password or startup password? Startup password can be bypassed by removing the CMOS battery on the motherboard, shorting the memory pins and replacing the battery and restarting.
If it is the login password, if you are on a domain the domain admin should be able to reset it; if not, did you create a password recovery disk? Is there more than one username on the laptop, and can one of those other users log in and reset your password?

I tried turning my phone off and it didnt work and i have no idea what happened to it...

Take out the battery. Then insert the battery again and see if the phone restarts. if it does then your poweron switch is stuck in pressed position. Or it is faulty. get it repaired. if it does not poweron then the switch may be alright. Poweron the phone. It should. Then try to poweroff the phone. should work.

Password on boot up

This usually works with a bunch of motherboards,

1. Open the CPU.
2. Unplug it from the power.
3. Remove the BIOS Battery.
4. Press Power without pluging it in a power supply.
5. (IF you can) Try and find a pin usually 3 of them with a jumper connecting 2 of them (middle and 1side) remove it and connect the middle and the opposite side and press power on again without plugging it.
(IF you can't find it) Just push the power button for about 30 seconds without pluging it.

Vote if it helps thanks
