Hello
If the HDD (Hard Drive) is defective you can't start the computer, the operating system software is on the HDD, if this is not the case for sure and you just think the HDD failed then the only way to overcome the password is to completely reformat the HDD and reinstall the operating systm, sorry but there is no way around this.

    If there is a password then you must have put it in, so I'll assume you diid not do a full format of the system. The only suggestion other than formatting the drive again and relaoding the system software is to try removing the CMOS button battery cell for 5 minutes and see if the system will start.

How to reset hdd/sst password of toshiba satellite c-55-B5299


You can only input the password and then change it. The password protects the owner of the drive from theft and if the owner forgets it ... too bad. Buy a new hard drive and start again. Owners do not forget an important password like that one!

How do I lock my Toshiba Satellite L500 laptop


You can put a Power On Password of your Toshiba, this will prevent unauthorized access to youe laptop. If you forget this password then you will have problems unlocking your Toshiba.
The Power on Password is configured in the BIOS under sercuity settings.
You can also put a password on the hard drive and if your Toshiba is stolen and they remove the hard drive out of your Toshiba into another laptop they cannot get access to the data on your hard drive.
NOTE if you forget the hard disk password you will not be able to access your hard disk.

Can i upgrade my processor?on my toshiba satellite m55-s135 laptop? I am upgrading the ram from 512mb to 2gb and the hard drive to 200gb.


dont know what processor you have. If you have a celeron M you can probably upgrade to a pentium M without any problem. The ram you should check. I believe that motherboard will only support 1.5 gb. Any more you will be waisting your money.

Dual Processors for Toshiba Satellite A205-S5000 533Mhz FSB


you got a cheap laptop. maybe from walmart or some other store that was selling it for about $400. It doesn't have a processor that you can switch out. I'm sure it's horribly slow for Visa, so my advise would be to sell it and get something with a dual core.
