Question about Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook
You should be able to boot off of the recovery disc... When you first turn on the computer it should have an option at the bottom of the screen for BOOT LIST or BOOT MENU... Usually something like F12, or you can just put the disc in and see if it tries to boot to it by default, on most Toshibas it will. But try to get to that boot list, put the CD in the drive, and tell it to boot from CD.
The password you are referring to must be a windows password if it's asking for a fingerprint... you can wipe out any passwords like that by just running the recovery disc and it will be back to "new" condition so to speak.
Please let me know if you have any problems, questions, or concerns, just reply to my answer here.
