Toshiba TE2000 Password?

By its_reflexed ·
i forgot my password for my toshiba laptop its a Te2000 with windows xp and has very important documents on there... i have tryed removing both batteries in the laptop the bios one and the charged one... i left them 48hours without batteries and still asks for the password

i called toshiba they said you can connect the laptop to other pc and reset the password or something but i have to send it to them in order to be able to do that and it will cost about $290 or something but i have tryed everything and i was just wondering if anyone noes how to do this\

is it flashed to the |EPROM Chip or something i changed the cpu NO... HDD. No... removed all backup batteries over 48hours .NO

i cant think of anything else

if it allowed boot options i could crack it but it dont allow BIOS access nor Boot Options
Under Password Entered

Someone Must Noe How To Do It\

Tryed Backdoor passwords but they dun work
cause the backdoor passwords are toshiba and bios star default etc... and i forgot the actual password ....

What did you apply the password to? was it the harddisk? If so, there probably isn't an easy or cheap way to do it, then you'd have to send it to toshiba to reset.

If it is the BIOS PAssword you can try this (probably what toshiba meant when you asked there):

See the thread for this question:

Download and unzip onto a floppy, boot from floppy.

You can also remove the drive and install it another laptop or desktop.

Was HDD connected to another PC running XP? If so, what messages did you get when trying to access data on hard disk? Can you access any folders on hard disk?

You said you put the HD in another system and couldn't get the data off. Were you able to connect to Disk at least? Was there an error message booting up, was it recognized by bios or by your OS?

As I said, if the HD is password protected you won't be able to get to its data all by yourself. You'll either have to send to toshiba or the Harddisk manufacturer, and as far as I know they will need proof (proof of purchase) that the disk is yours, including the data on it. Once that is clarified they should be able to reset the password of that disk. But it will be expensive. There might be a chance of other companies being able to reset the password, I'm not sure.

As for reseting the Password of the PC, the link I sent you before should help, but if your going to send in your disk you might as well send in the whole PC.

OK, yOUNG man. I don't care if you think it won't work. Just follow the instructions in ans 2, I don't care about the points. You shouldn't reject answers just because YOU think they won't work.
