Sounds like your CPU and HeatSink needs a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on them. You'd have to take the laptop apart to do it. It's shortening out because the paste is dry and causing metal to touch metal and shortening out.

If you pull the fridge out into the room, that will give you more movement. It will only need 6" or so.

If you get prompted for the HDD password when turning on the computer, and you do not know it you will need to call Toshiba support. Circumventing an HDD password is not an easy task.
Also there where Toshiba laptops, model 6100, that when the user was suddenly prompted for the HDD password Toshiba replaced the HDD under warranty.

You have a choice. Type in the correct password or replace the hard drive. There is no other option.

I have bought a used toshiba satellite L555D-S7006 with windows 7 home premium 64 bit with the amd processor, it was working great. Well the other day I turned it on and it said to enter the bios password, I never put a bios password into the computer. I did some research on this and took the motherboard over to a freinds and he removed the cmos battery, after i reinstalled the motherboard now its asking for a HDD1/SSD1 password. So does anybody have any ideas about how to fixx this problem

Ask your network administrator.

You hit the correct jumpers for this model to remove the motherboard bios lock, which shows you have done your homework well. Toshiba, like Dell set a bios lock and HDD lock on some laptops for security reasons, often when the cmos battery needs changing, it manifests itself.

As to why you got this request for a bios pass is very odd, if you did not change the cmos battery, however, removing the battery as you state would not fix the hard drive problem. The hard drive will remain locked and if, as I suspect, it is a security measure, you will not be able to remove it and externally access files or even format it by slaving it in another computer or docking station.

Your best solution would be to contact a Toshiba service centre and explain the problem and ask them for a bios unlock code. IF this was installed at the factory, they should be able to remove it (you WILL be asked to provide proof of ownership)

I have heard of some laptops being "time locked", which is where the time/ date settings in the bios trigger a request for a bios password for security purposes, but never actually seen this occur. This might explain why the bios pass request appeared randomly as it did. There is the possibility that this was caused by a virus, although, again, I've never heard of this happening.

I presume that this message comes up when you first turn the laptop on. In that case the Hard Drive has been lock with a password. The is no way to remove this with either knowing the password or sending the laptop to a specialist who can remove the password for you.

Lost Windows password:

  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html
