Ok you are kind of in trouble that password can NOT be try the passwords that were recommeded above and then try and think if you have any passwords any where else on your computer and try those if not you will have to take it somewhere to have it completely reset and lose all your data....good luck!

    If it's an older Toshiba, you can build a device from an old parallel printer cable. You connect certain pins to certain other pins (like connect 1 to 13, connect 2 to 7 and 10, etc...), plug it into the parallel port and boot up and it will allow you to get into the BIOS and reset the password. From what I remember, when you're in the BIOS, you have to set another password (make it simple like 1234) and the device lets you do this w/o asking for the current unknown password. You then save the changes to BIOS, shut down, remove the parallel cable thingy, reboot, enter the BIOS again, and remove the password you just created (like 1234). The parallel device has a catchy name like a 'boot blocker' or maybe 'BIOS booter' or something. They sell 'em pre-made on EBay but they only work on fairly old Toshiba's. I've only done this once about 4 or 5 years ago; it worked great when this guy's 5 year old go into the BIOS and BS'd his way into setting a password. We were all pretty stoked when this bootlegged printer cable let us reset the password!!! Anyway, I'm rambling... if it's an older Toshiba, look into it on Google or something. You can also get USB devices that do the same thing for newer Toshiba laptops, but they're not cheap; over $100 .... Just Google 'remove Toshiba password' or maybe 'reset {model number of laptop} password' or something. I dunno.... usually, these power on passwords cannot be removed by taking out the CMOS battery, so unless she remembers, or you pay a service or buy a device, you're probably out of luck

How to bypass system password-administrator password dell venue 8 pro tablet

I will attempt to tackle your problem, however, I am uncertain if you need to bypass the bios password or the login password to windows operating system. Some hard drives also have passwords but from your question it seems to be one of the former 2. If it is a bios password or a windows login you can google Hiren's boot CD 15.2 restored v 1.1 DVD Proteus.ISO and follow the directions for creating a Bootable USB or burn it to DVD with any .ISO image burner like roxio or download image's free. At start up you may have to press esc or f-11 or f-12 to get the boot menu, choose the device that the boot CD is on by using the arrows on the keyboard, highlight the device and press enter, you will get the menu from the CD, depending on your issue , bios password you must go into dos mode, if login to windows you can enter either dos or mini windows xp or mini windows 7 and follow the instructions to remove or reset the passwords.
Yes......give me your service tag number and I will generate the password for you, I have the factory service tag to password have a bios password lock. If you also run into a windows password the horns CD will help you.

Continue with a blank password field, since none was manually set.

If that doesn't work, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for several minutes and replace it, that should flash the BIOS to default.

Hi!! Usually DELL Latitude or Inspiron passwords are storedi n eeprom memories that has to be read or writen to remove / bypass the BIOS password!!!
