Satellite Pro C660-29W; How to remove Supervisor Password

Q: Satellite Pro C660-29W; How to remove Supervisor Password

Hi all,
I have been locked out of my bios and I don't know the password either. My little brother was playing with my laptop and accidently set the supervisor password. Is there any way I can recover the password or reset it? I really need to change my boot sequence as I just bought a new SSD and need to format my notebook. Suggestions will be highly appreciated.

The following are my laptop details and bios version

Toshiba satellite Pro C660-29W

CPU Intel Core i5 2410M

8GB DDR3 Ram

BIOS: AMI BIOS - Aptio Setup Utility
System Bios ver: 1.50
EC Version: 1.50

Thank you

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Satellite Pro C660-29W; How to remove Supervisor Password

Supervisor password is very important security feature and some kind of ?user reset? is not possible. You can cancel it but you must know the right password to confirm that you are the real notebook owner.

Toshiba service provider in your country can help you with this. You must just approve that you are notebook owner and they can cancel it for you. Of course you must pay for it.

As far as I know there are several techniques for password removal and it depends on notebook model.

Contact nearest Toshiba ASP and ask for help.

Hi,

Can someone please help,

I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite C660/C660D for my nephew, We have forgotten the administrator password and we don't have password reset disk is there anyway around this.

Thanks

A:I forgot my administrator password on Satellite C660/C660

Hi

I assume you are talking about windows system password and not about BIOS password. Right?
It?s not very big problem if you forgotten the System password but if you mean BIOS password then you are in trouble because the BIOS password can be deleted just by an Toshiba ASP technicians?

So I assume you mean Windows password? so start the notebook and press F8
Now you can choose Repair my Computer and then choose HDD recovery.
This would start a HDD recovery procedure which would reinstall the system? during the setup you can set anther admin password.

Of course there are some other methods but as far as I know this requires 3rd party software/tools or Win 7 DVD? so I think the HDD recovery is the fastest solution.

Hello

About this I can only say check your user manual!!! ;)

There I have founded the following information:

+This utility lets you do the following:+
+Register, delete or change the supervisor password+
+Create or invalidate a supervisor password token+

Check this and then you should be able to delete the password if you know the current.

Lets start off with this statement, so I don't get a load of replies on how to clear the BIOS PASSWORD. This is the SUPERVISOR Password which is set via the "Toshiba Supervisor Password Utility". So removing the CMOS battery/using the jumpers under the memory won't work in this case.

I have a couple of P755 and A665 laptops that I've repaired, however they have the SUPERVISOR password enabled with various degrees of security enabled in the BIOS.

After hours of google searching and pouring over the internet and looking at schematics for the Compal LA-6061p and LA-6062p motherboards (which are near identical in layout) it appears that there is no "master password" for the SUPERVISOR Password. It would appear that the password is stored in the EEPROM chip which is where I'm unsure which chip it is on the Motherboard for these laptop series.

From what I gather you can do the "not so safe" thing of shorting out the EEPROM chip during boot cycle. Failing that I can simply replace EEPROM chip, if I know which chip to replace, off of a donor motherboard.

So does anyone know a way to get past the Supervisor Password either by jumper points on the motherboard, shorting the EEPROM chip or simply the chip location on the MB?

Hi Guys,
I have a little issue with my Satellite L50-B-PSKT4U laptop and have created a service ticket at Toshiba, took additional warranty and no answer from Toshiba support..Have been on the phone after 3 weeks with their support and after 30 minutes of listening to keep-you-calm music the line get's cut and no support. Called again, after 30 minutes again same story, and 3rd time same wonderful support. One and a half our further no support, so let's try the queue for business laptops......
Within 30 seconds I get a service guy on the phone and I told him I pressed intentionally the wrong option for business support, because I had been waiting for 1.5 hours in total without success and 3 times in a row the line was cut... He told me that this line was for businesses and not consumers.
I told him the laptop was bought and owned by a company, bought via a reseller and my problem is a buggy BIOS from Toshiba/Insyde and could affect also business laptops..The guy became pissed and wanted to bet there was nothing wrong with the BIOS, because Toshiba would not supply buggy BIOSes.
Furthermore BIOS problems are not covered by warranty and if I wanted to get my laptop fixed I had to send it to a repair company and pay their fee for fixing the result of a buggy BIOS supplied by Toshiba..

Hello all,

Yesterday all of a sudden, the laptop screen went blank. Upon turning it on several times, the screen still doesn't turn on. By connecting the monitor to a external monitor via VGA (my TV), the TV does show up the screen, but has several flickering horizontal lines showing, thus obscuring part of the screen (http://i.imgur.com/83RO8xg.jpg - ignore the windows behind, I was testing the sound - and it works).

I have tried several solutions on the web (like removing the battery and AC cable and pressing the power button, and interchanging the RAM card in the slots), and not surprisingly, nothing worked as I think my problem is not similar. Windows 10 just boots to a blue screen with a sad face and a QR code (I don't even know...), while Linux Mint does boot and gives a message of "running without hardware acceleration". I couldn't get any diagnosis on Linux to check if it's a problem on the graphic card or the motherboard, so I am turning to these forums to check if anyone had any similar problem.

Thank you.

If you formatted the HDD before creating an recovery disk, then you will not be able to recover the notebook back to factory settings.

In such case you have two options:

1) you will use an Microsoft installation disk in order to install Windows 7 (you need valid serial key and licence from MS)
or
2) you will order the recovery disk from Arvato service: http://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/

Create recovery DVD and make test with Win8. If you don?t like it or you will see that there are problems with drivers, tools or utilities installation you can install recovery image again using created recovery DVD.

I think you are the first one with Win8 and it will be nice if you can make short report about all this. It will be interesting to read your experience about it.

A:CPU upgrade on Satellite Pro C660-219

>I need someone to answer for question: may I fit to this laptop any i5 or i7 without trouble with compability with motherboard?
You have to know that CPUs upgrades are not supported by any notebook manufacturer. This means that nobody can say if an CPU would be fully compatible and would not cause any troubles. Such upgrades are own risk.

You could read this Toshiba statement regarding upgrades.
[Is it possible to upgrade the CPU or GPU of a Toshiba Notebook?|http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm]

The point is that even the chipset which is part of the motherboard would support the new CPU, the BIOS could not be fully compatible and the combination of BIOS and new CPU could cause new troubles.

The unit seems to support the INTEL HM55 chipset and from my knowledge the Toshiba Satellite C660/C665/Pro C660 Series is based on a Dual Core/Quad Core Processor ( *Intel Arrandale* processors)

So if you want to search for a compatible CPU, you should check the CPUs belonging to the Intel Arrandale processors family.

Usually if the supervisor password has been set, you can access the BIOS pressing F2 button.
Now you have to insert the Supervisor Password or you can proceeds with limit access to different BIOS options by pressing the F11 button.

If you have inserted the right supervisor password, you could delete it again in the BIOS security tab.
Usually you have to insert the right supervisor password and have to press ENTER twice just to delete it. Then save the changes

Hello,

My HDD has died, so i decided to upgrade my Satellite Pro C660-1D9 to an SSD.
I made a bootable USB with Win8, and booted just fine.

The problem is that it does not detect my SSD so i can proceed with the install.
SSD shows up in BIOS, but not in Windows install.
It says there's a driver missing.

I downloaded AHCI drivers (XP, only ones available) and even then, after selecting the only driver that appears, it says no new devices found.

I tried changing SATA mode from AHCI to Compatibility mode and it's the same..

What can i do?

Thanks for the help.
Best regards,
Bruno Moreira

A:Can't install Win 8 - Satellite Pro C660 does not detect HDD

Older Windows XP required an AHCI driver from Intel but I think this isn?t a missing SATA driver issue because as far as I know Windows 8 as well as Win 8.1 already contains the drivers in order to recognize the HDD or SSD drive.
Furthermore the OS installation should be possible even if the driver would not be added... for this procedure you have to use the "compatibility mode".
As you said, the compatibility mode did not work too, so I think there is another problem.

However, Toshiba driver page provides also an Intel RST (Intel Rapid Storage Technology) driver (Windows 8 - Upgrade) which you could try to add while OS installation.

But I?m wondering if you would be able to install this Win 8 on common SATA HDD.
Did you try to format the SSD drive using another computer and then to install Win 8?
Try it out.

I have a Satellite Pro C660-24L PSC1ME-00J00KEN that has been destroyed by a virus. The Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility was erased by the virus. I need to do a clean install. Does anyone know the drivers installation order for Windows7 64 bit Thanks in advance!

My laptop wanted to do 3 updates last night when I shut it down - don't know what updates - but after bout 30mins of doing nothing I turned the power off. It's now npt doing anything!! Power is on & initially got a Boot Menu box with info on but now the HDD/SSD info that was showing has disappeared. I'm a real non tech person so haven't a clue what's happened or how to sort it. Wasn't having any problems at all until the laptop tried to update last night. Can anyone help??

I upgraded windows 7 to 8.1 and it was very slow, the disk is always in 100 usage.
When I had the Windows 7 I never had the computer slow.

A:Satellite C660 with Windows 8.1 is very slow

Can you please explain to us what have you done exactly?
As far as I know your machine is supported for Win8 upgrade only.
Have you upgraded Win7 to Win8 and later to Win8.1 or you have made clean Win8 installation and later updated it to Win8.1?

When you used notebook with Win8 only have you noticed the same performance issue?

Sorry if this is a piece of cake for you.

Laptop was overheating; I usually just undo a few screws, dig out the fluff on the fins, rebuild and all is ok.

BIG mistake: I hibernated computer instead of turning off, left battery in and then disassembled (don't ask me how or why I did this because I do not know)

Lot of fluff taken out of fins.

Upon rebuild, power button only illuminates green LED, screen stays dead, no audio noise, no beeps.

Have taken apart 3 times now and rebuilt, but can not find a problem.

HDD is in a caddy and backed up elsewhere,

Any idea of what is going on or if laptop is fixable? I feel such a fool.

Thanks if you can help

A:Satellite Pro C660 does not turn on - green LED only

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. Obviously there is no reaction at all. Even BIOS doesn't work. Maybe some electroshock and now BIOS chip is screwed up.
Man why do you play with your notebook if you don't have experience with this stuff?

Sorry to say this but I?m afraid mainboard is death. I really don't know what to say.
You can ry to search for same or similar notebook on eBay. Maybe you can find same machine with defective display ot anything else but with well working manboard.

Repair is pretty expensive so I don't think it is an option for you.
What do you think about all this?

Hi

I just installed windows 8 on my Satellite C660-162 PSCOSE and I want to know if it's compatible with my Toshiba model because I heard that windows 8 can damage the computer if it's not compatible with it

Thanks in advance

A:Is Satellite C660-162 compatible with Windows 8?

Hello

In my opinion such question should be asked before Win8 installation. More about Win8 instalation on Toshiba notebooks you can read on http://www.toshiba.eu/innovation/generic/windows8-message/
There you can check support for your notebook model > Toshiba Compatibility Matrix. Check it.
>... I heard that windows 8 can damage the computer if it's not compatible with it
I don't know what kind of damage you mean but generally speaking you can install any OS and check if and how it works.

Only thing that will be damaged is HDD recovery option so I hope you have created recovery disc before you have installed Win8 version.

If you have more questions you are welcome.

I have recently had Microsoft Technical Assistance reinstall Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

I find it most offensive that Toshiba are unable to supply the Original Windows Activation code for the Laptop which was bought with the operating system pre-installed.

The Windows "Identification" label has long since perished.

No back up disk was supplied nor ever made, and there were no instructions nor inferences that it was imperative to create such.

It is not only preposterous but TOTALLY WRONG that one should be expected to pay again for something one has ALREADY PAID for!

A:Satellite C660 - Windows reactivation

This theme was discussed probably 1000 times on this forum and you can find many threads with very good and detailed explanation how it works.

Notebook is not delivered with restoration disc but original recovery image is saved on HDD and in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can install recovery image using HDD recovery option but also how to create bootable recovery media (DVD or USB).

If you don't have it now all you can do is to order original recovery media or use own operating system but in this case Toshiba has nothing to do with product activation.

Product key that you got with your machine belongs to the OS version that you got with your notebook.

If you have more questions please be free to ask.

Can anyone tell me when Windows10 driver software will be available for the Satellite Pro C660-F7?

And when will Toshiba Support have enough staff to take telephone calls fairly quickly? A recorded message advising of a 10 or so minute wait on a premium rate number is not good service.

This question relates to a Toshiba Satellite Pro C660-1UX Laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1.

Some of the onboard keys (E, T, U, I, O, A, B, N, together with the Enter key) fail to register.
All of the other keys tested so far appear to register normally.

When connecting an external USB keyboard, all keys function properly. However, when using either the onboard keyboard or the external USB keyboard, it is necessary to hold down whatever key is selected for approx 2-3 seconds in order for its character to register. This makes typing incredibly slow and is understandably unacceptable.

I've checked device manager looking for errors, but am unable to find any. The driver for the keyboard is listed as installed and working properly, and driver update says that the latest version is in already in use.

I have also scanned for viruses using Malware Bytes and Spybot, and also with the laptops own pre-installed antivirus software. All of the full system scans return a no threat found message.

I have read that the keyboards on these machines can sometime be problematic, which could answer why only certain onboard keys function. The fact that all keys on the external USB keyboard work would seem to confirm this. However, the fact that both onboard and external keyboard is affected by the same slow keypress might also suggest a bios problem - but as this laptop is several years old and has been working perfectly, why would bios suddenly cause this probl...

A:Satellite Pro C660 - Keyboard Problems

> When connecting an external USB keyboard, all keys function properly.

This means that keyboard controller is OK and the internal keyboard is faulty.
To fix this keyboard issue, the internal keyboard should be replaced.

>However, the fact that both onboard and external keyboard is affected by the same slow keypress might also suggest a bios problem - but as this laptop is several years old and has been working perfectly, why would bios suddenly cause this problem.

Hmm? I don?t think so?
The keyboard delay may be related to the settings.
You can check this in control panel -> keyboard
