Hi

You could try to start up in safe mode ( quite often f8 ) sign in as administrator and cancel the password

Also if you get into safe mode try a system restore back to when it was ok

Or hit delete key a few times when starting up hopefully this will take you into the bios because the f12 or f2 key may be disabled

Be very careful what you change in your bios because on a laptop its not very easy to change jumpers on bios battery so only enable the f2 or f12 then hit save and exit windows will then restart

But be very very carefull not to play around in the bios if you dont understand it you may end up with BIG BIG Problems

Wont run windows at all. Says: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM


You have a corrupt registry and it needs to be replaced.
Doing a System Restore will do this. Since you cannot run it from the hard drive, you will have to boot from a Windows DVD.
Here is the procedure

You did not specify which version of Windows you have so I just picked W7 as an example. If you need more specific instructions, you need to give more specific information.

Tip

For Windows OS PC's


If you have forgotten your password on your PC Desktop Computer, or Laptop:

1. Start (restart) the computer
2. When the computer first starts, look in the lower left corner of the screen and look for two "F" commands. One is F2, the other either F11 or F12.
3. Press the F2 (or F12) to enter the setup configuration. (some are set for either, but only one will take you into setup; it will say on the screen)
4. Once this loads, you'll see a file menu. Using your arrow keys, move through the file menu and use the down arrow key to view the list of options for each, and look for the password reset option.
5. Once you have found this,it will ask for the current password. Leave this blank unless you know or think you know what the old password is (best if you know). The next two lines will ask you to enter, and re-enter the new password. For now, you will want to leave them blank, but select them using the down arrow key, and press enter for each.
6. Scroll to the far right (last menu item) and scroll down to select "exit while saving". The OS will restart and reload the OS. Once prompted for the password, (for windows 7) press enter. If using and older version of windows is being used, you may not be prompted for a password (except windows xp) and the OS will automatically load to the Desktop.
7. If doing this does not work, or if when in setup the old password was deemed incorrect, try another password or leave it blank, select that box, and press enter, as well as for the new password and confirm new password boxes, exit while saving, and restart OS.

Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you.

I received a toshiba satellite l305-S5919 laptop as a gift. the first time i turned it off, it's never turned back on. when i turn it on the F1, F2 and F12 keys do not work at all during the 1 second...


This is what we call a BIOS password, I have worked in the PC repair field for years, and this is something that you are simply not able to "crack" or get around. There are a couple things you can try though, if you can find an locate the BIOS BATTERY inside the notebook, you can pull it out, and SOMETIMES it will reset that password....this is very rare, and you only mostly see this is older computers that it actually works. Two questions: Is this used? Is it still under warranty? (check by going to Toshiba.com) Hope this helps!

No operating system found


If the error message says "No operating system found" it is most likely a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
Reseat the hard disk, if this doesn't work you need to test the hard disk another way. Remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard disk adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files then the hard disk is OK and the fault is the disk controller on the the 4115c laptop.
If the hard disk is not detected then the hard disk is faulty. You need to install a new hard disk, install Windows and the laptop's device drivers and programs to get a working laptop again.
