Toshiba locked with a password

Bios screen and boot screen ask for a password I never set. Toshiba Tech support in India says I need to purchase a recovery cd from them for $40 to reset password and wipe all my data off.Will not work with a new HD. I took the laptop apart and was looking for J01 pin to short out. could not find it. Could I remove bios chip for a reset? Let me know..though it would make a nice anchor for my fishing boat

    I have the same problem with a Compaq Armada 1529DMT laptop I recently inherited. I would like to use it as a computer for a grandchild, but cannot get anywhere with booting it up. Even the CD does not seem to start up when 1st booting it up. I just goes to a password log in screen and waits. I have no idea what the user name and password were?

Download the UBCD (ultimate boot CD) burn it to a CD and boot your laptop up with it (you may have to change the boot order to CD)
There is a utility on the UBCD for changing the BIOS password.

    My toshiba satellite c655 laptop has a black screen with a blue box asking for a current password


    Sounds like the HDD password or Bios password got set.

    You may need to talk to the person who set that password to be able to finish booting up the computer.

    If that person is not available - you can call the Toshiba 1-800-457-7777. They may want to charge you for the over the phone support - but they should be able to walk you through how to get around the Bios or Hdd password if that is indeed your problem.

    you will need to take the laptop to a tech, someone set a password for the boot. In order to reset the password you have to take the laptop apart and set the jumper setting to reset the Bios configuration. A tech will know how to do it, they will charge you probably 2-3 hours of labour so your looking at $150-$200 to have it done unless they cut you a really sweet deal.

    Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.

    ** I have downloaded this file myself from the link above and scanned it with microsoft one care, it came up clean **

    Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

    Format the disk to be BOOTABLE using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.
    Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you’ll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you’re asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.

    Cant boot


    If you are sure no one has tampered with it and entered a HDD password and it is not prompting for a password then it is most likely a HDD failure. It is possible the BIOS will still recognize the HDD. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the HDD if you can access it there should be screws on the bottom marked with a cylinder symbol.

    TOSHIBA


    your motherboard's configurations is set to ask for password as soon as booting
    try using the password Toshiba ( with capital T ) or toshiba ( small t ) .. normally that's the backdoor password for Toshiba laptops .. if either don't work .. try to hold the left Shift key as soon as you boot the pc .. this also can be a solution to bypass the password.. if none is working let me know :)
