Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba Satellite A215. I booted it up, and all of a sudden I started getting a box that says I have to insert a password. The screen is black with the password box blue. Is this fixable and how?

    I tried press enter just three times and it didn't do anything differently. Then I tried hitting enter over and over until a code came up, but nothing happened. Anything else to try?

Toshiba satellite a215-s4697 Please help me how to reset password


Hi gv2jae..

Start up your computer
1. Keep pressing "F8" as the laptop computer starts.
2. When the window "Advanced Boot Options" opens, choose "Safe Mode" with arrow key and confim by pressing the Enter key, then PC enters the Safe Mode.
3. Once you are in the Safe mode Click "Administrator" on the Windows login screen.
Take note that you have set the Administrator password before, you need to input the changed password instead of leaving "Password" field blank.
4. Then click Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Select the account that is locked and change the password.
5. Restart laptop and login into the account you just created using your new password.

I have a previously owned Toshiba A215 S7444 Satellite Laptop, when booting up I get a black screen and it asks for the Phoenix Bios Password. The previous owner does not know the password and it is NOT...


You can either find the CMOS backup battery and take it out for a while to let the memory discharge, or look online to find a program which will crack the Phoenix password (these do exist, I had to use them when I was in business fixing computers).

Please help me to remove bios password on a laptop toshiba satellite A215-SP5811. my e-mail is asalazar@ssaver.gob.mx


There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

Toshiba satellite a215s7422 screen blackout problem, however, computer powers up and fan is running. external monitor will start in safe mode. sometimes i see the word signal on external monitor. help


Sounds like your refresh rate is incorrect

Boot into safe mode. Go to Start > Control Panel > Under Appearance and Personalization , select Adjust screen resolution ,
Selct your laptops display , set the resolution to 1024x768 , click on advanced settings then click the monitor tab at the top.
In the box below , select Use hardware default setting .

Hit ok.

If that doesnt fix it something is wrong with the drivers.

Start in safe mode with networking and get the drivers from here and install them.

Toshiba satilite a215 s7422 bios password how to cleare


You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.

Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.
