Question about Computers & Internet
I have a toshiba satelite 2410 S185 notebook,i tried to turn it on and somehow i dont know what happened it wont boot up.. it keep asking me for a HDD password, which i never had....it wont let me goes to the bios and anything.. is there some code i have to type in for the Hardrive or so?
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.

Nope, I have two harddrives with the same problem. I know both harddrives work fine just keeps asking for the HDD password no matter which i put in but the origional failing drive dose not ask for this HDD password it may be the formatting I'm going to try re-partitioning, and look on toshiba's technical site for more and try and post it back
