Basically, once you unlock it, you should be able to boot into the BIOS and disable the HDD password. I'd say to do that first but you would need the password once you were in the BIOS to be able to disable it thus the recommendation to essentially set it to something you know first via the guide above.
Try "1" or "/" or "A" or some messy combination of keys because it seems like you probably had a typo during setting the new password. Try "Spacebar" try "]" or "[" etc for a password, if you can figure it out you can reset it to nothing again just be careful. Otherwise research acer travelmate bios password removal. Also that computer is kind of old, so if there's nothing on it of importance, I'd replace it. If you need data try your friendly computer shop.
a toshiba c655 brand new in the box as soon as I turn it on it-
says to enter current password. It will not let me use F2 or F12, it
goes right back to enter current password. How can I solve this problem?
i think is a factory fault most systems comes with factory passwords like that.
now u must find out if its a hard drive password which i dont think is thru.if its a bios password then u will need to erase the bios chips which is a risky thing to do if u r not an expert.
hard drive password can not be recovered all u do is change a hard drive.
bios password can be erased if u meet an expert.
i suggest u give them d 100 dollrs n get it fixed.
hope this helps
