Cant boot up my toshiba lap top. it comes up asking for the BIOS password then shuts down after 3 tries! have tried all the F keys, shift key and removing battery!


the only way to get past the bios password is to open up the case and try to find a jumper on the main board that says bios reset, close that jumper and turn on the computer for one boot, power down and remove the jumper, after that the bios should be reset(bios passwords are usually set as a security measure that is not easy for the average user to bypass such as a windows one that can be removed by formatting the drive and reinstalling windows)

Hdd password frozen on laptop These both worked. Thanks much to Eddie333 and howarthjd2. What I ended up doing was this: Note- I was not replacing the HDD, merely trying to reinstall WindowsXP, which...


if you download the sata drivers from the toshiba website for your specific laptop and then extract them and get nlite ( www.nliteos.com and slipstream the drivers into the xp disc you can then re install xp and it should allow you to boot.

As for the hard drive frozen password that should be in the bios on the hard drive that you set it for so it should remember it

if not you may have to contact toshiba and they should have a back door password that they can produce once you give them the asset tag ( serial number of the laptop ) and once you enter that it should resolve the hard drive frozen issue.

Had a hard drive frozen at a school once and had to call dell ( as it was a dell laptop obviously ) and gave them the serial number and they created a back door password for me - jobs a good one :D

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 notebook HDD problem


I think you may find your hard drive has failed? I suggest that you replace the hard drive with a new one. But, just to check.. remove the hard Drive from the machine... (usually acessable under the machine via a couple of screws and usually just slides out etc) Then try to "Boot" the machine from CD or floppy.. (on say ya Windows XP CD, choosing Boot from CD from PC menu) if it does.. then it IS ya HD, if not then ya may have a Motherboard fault. So do NOT change the drive.. at this juncture I would suggest ya go to a reputable PC repairer and ask for a "Quote" for the fix, and an explanation of what is/was wrong.
