Password fix

by jmgarvin In reply to password

Typically I don't answer these because laptops are too easily stolen.

However, you need to decide if it is a BIOS or OS password.

If it is an OS password, simply reinstall the OS and you'll be fine.

If it is a BIOS password, you don't have much of a choice and you are going to need to contact tech support.

same problem with Toshiba

by alimsms In reply to password

It seems that all new Toshiba's have problem of sudden asking of BIOS password. I have the same problem with Toshiba A135-2276. When i switched it on in the morning it suddenly started asking for BIOS password.
There are too many people in the tech forums. I think Toshiba knows about this problem but it's not giving any solution other than charging 100$ for removing password. and what should customers who stay in countries without toshiba support do with this problem? send laptops to USA? Shame on Toshiba.
If anyone have found the way to resolve this issue please post it.

suggestions

by contact@resetwindowspass In reply to password

As far as I know , there are two main methods to solve the windows password problem as follows:
1st Method:
Start system and when you see Windows Welcome screen / Login screen, press ctrl+alt+del keys twice and it'll show Classic Login box. Now type "Administrator" (without quotes) in Username and leave Password field blank. Now press Enter and you should be able to log in Windows.
Now you can reset your account password from "Control Panel -> User Accounts".
Same thing can be done using Safe Mode. In Safe Mode Windows will show this in-built Administrator account in Login screen.
2th Method:
Windows password reset software:
for example:Windows Password Reset. It is easy and convenient to use.

That method doesn't work !! ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to suggestions

The subject of THIS thread, very old as it may be, was regarding a BOOT password - not a Windows password.

If there is a boot password -a POWER-ON password- the user won't be able to use your solution because they won't be able to get to the point of using Ctrl+Alt+Del.
