Preferred Solution: Password on Toshiba SATELLITE L50-C-1GX Laptop

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.)

Good morning/ day all ! I was hoping someone could help me open windows-8 on a laptop I was given. The previous owner doesn't remember the password she set for it. She also said several folks have tried helping her and failed. Any suggestions ?

On restart/ power on Windows does nothing now and what looks like a dos(blue) box or window asks for a password. That is as far as I have gotten so far. Thanks in advance to all that support this site.

Hello.

My son has bought a new toshiba satellite pro C650 laptop from a shop.
It boots into win 7 desktop,but it wont let us do anything on it,we try to register password,no good,then try user account password,but no good,also we can't get to administrator.

It has several big icons on the right hand side of screen as well,which i assume the shop put on there as advertising,so we need to get rid of them as well,but at the moment we can't do anything.

we have registered the laptop with toshiba okay.
Could anyone tell us how to activate this laptop please?

Thanks.

I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.

I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.

Has anybody had any similar experience like this?
I would really appreciate any help its driving me crazy.

Hi,

Friend of mine runs a small farm supply business, he had three reps, he now has two. The third bought his own laptop on company credit card (allowed) it's a Toshiba Satellite L640. He handed it back in on his last day (unwillingly) friend tried to start it up and goes straight to a black screen with blue password box, can't F2 or F12 just goes straight to password, can't boot off CD. Former employee won't answer phone calls and not sure he would provide it anyway.

Help please?

A:Toshiba satellite L640 password

You are going to have to reset the bios password which will involve dismantling the laptop. Is it still under warranty? I'm sure your friend has the proper documentation to prove he owns it, therefore, if it's still under warranty, he can get help from Toshiba.

If it is no longer under warranty, however, there are ways to reset the bios password, as I mentioned, but it will involve dismantling the laptop.

2. If you KNOW the password this is the procedure
http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Comput...-UEFI-BIOS-or-HDD-hard-disk-drive/ta-p/407769
If you know the password for the BIOS or UEFI or don't have one set, you can change or remove a password through the UEFI/BIOS settings, Hardware Setup Utility, or TOSHIBA Security Assist Utility.
As explained on the link with the sub links to the appropriate OS

There are a number of very good YouTube videos for almost identical models, but they don't work on this one.

I'd suggest testing the hard drive.

In order to test the hard drive you can run one of the diagnostic programs below. The files, in ISO format, will need to be burned to a CD using a program that can burn CD image files (burnaware or imgburn).

My name is Ken and I am trying to repair a customer's Toshiba Satellite laptop. It had Windows XP loaded and when it boots it will only get as far as:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \windows\system32\config\system
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

I saw on one website to press 0, F1 or F8 to get the hard drive disk utility to come up on the screen but it only displays the message that I detailed above. I also ensured that the CD/DVD was the first boot device and I tried to reload the operating system with a Win XP disk that I have but the same message appears.
I cannot get past this message no matter what I do.
And to make matters worse, the customer doesn't have the original Setup CD-ROM. I guess what i'm looking for is an original setup disk.

A:Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Although you do not say so

I tried a new power adapter cord, I installed new power jack and still no power and no lightsClick to expand...

and presuming the battery was flat and it could not therefore be tested on battery only without charging the same - I presume you did try a new POWER adapter, as against just the connecting cable and new power mini jack socket
Or at least test that you had an output from the adapter

The answer to the actual question is you cannot, there is no such thing as ONE tester for what you specify
The heat sink would not STOP it posting, even if it cut out as soon as it detected overheat on the processor

Presuming that it has more than one stick of ram, simply removing one and swopping over before of course you dismantled it was the test for that

However although a failed ram stick may stop it booting it would not stop the power led illuminating on the laptop

My opinion is, with no power led whatsoever and if you have eliminated power supply as first mentioned
capacitor failure on board on circuit that takes power from connections of jack.
It may of course NOT be so, but that is in my experience favourite

Hi,

I have a 2 months old Toshiba Satellite laptop with windows 7. I tend to leave it plugged into the power socket when I leave home, when I return I find it started up !!!

It is just doing nothing, I just can see the adobe acrobat baloon asking me to install an update in the taskbar.

This happened twice. I have the wake up modem options disabled in the BIOS setting.

Any recommendations to why this is occuring?

A:Help-My Toshiba satellite laptop switches on alone !

You may wish to go into your power configuration settings and turn off other Wake On... settings.

Go into device manager and go through your various network components and any other devices you don't wish to be able to wake your computer (hard drive, etc). Leave your keyboard & mouse on unless you wish to use the power button to wake.

Start > Control Panel (All Items) > Device Manager

Right Click Each Item, Click Properties

Go to the Power Management Tab & Turn off "Allow this device to wake the computer"

From what I can tell, it looks like your ethernet/wireless is detecting an incoming/outgoing connection and waking itself in order to deal w/ that connection. If you want a simpler solution, just turn off automatic updates in Adobe & whatever else tends to wake your computer.

The lcd screen backlight work fine, but screen is reddish. When I connect the external monitor to the laptop the video is great. When I installed a another used lcd screen into laptop the is white, and no video. So, I ordered another video cable hoping that this will fix the problem. What could cause the lcd screen to be white? The external monitor work good with the laptop, I am not getting any video to the lcd screen. Could the video on the motherboard be bad?
Thanks!
 

A:toshiba satellite a40 laptop-LCD SCREEN

I don't think you have a bad video card if the image on the external monitor is fine. It sounds like its either the video cable or the backlight inverter. If the original lcd screen is bright enough and clear enough (except for the reddish tint) then I'd suggest trying the new video cable with the old screen. If you still get a reddish tint then I'd recommend replacing the backlight inverter (if you can - not all laptops allow this).

The only reason I can think the new screen isn't working is due to no/out-of-date/incompatible drivers. Still, not sure why the screen would be white. Have you tried the screen with a different laptop?

I bought this new, obviously some years ago.
XP Home and all original hardware.
Gave it to my sister about 4 years ago to run to run scientific apps that won't run on anything newer than XP.
In her possession, It was not used on a network---no internet at all.

It's screen went blank but the lights on the front of the case showed it loading/booting up.
So I attached it to an old CRT monitor. As the computer booted the screen filled with a few hundred colored vertical lines but finalized with the regular background, but no icons or start menu. Right clicking on it did nothing.

So I booted to an Acronis Boot disk and installed a known drive image I made 4 years ago that I knew was good. Same issue.

I then installed the factory image from my Toshiba Install disk and, with the CRT attached, it boots up normally with no apparent issues.

I still need to check the wiring connections of the laptop monitor but at least it's still useful with the external monitor.

I'd like to hand this back to my sister with confidence as she uses it at home to do scientific data analysis for her employer.
Any thoughts on what this issue might be, have been?

My limited knowledge is saying BS. It looks like only 1/3 of the HD space is being used.

I removed a couple of gig of unused stuff and then emptied the trash can.

The computer said I have even less room than before.

Went to my $50/hr computer guru's a few days ago and showed it to him. We spent 45 minutes and he ended up calling his mentor. Had to leave a message.

He will call me later. The Rollback folks will get back to him. It probably isn't the Rollback because I'm pretty sure the problem existed a long time before it was installed.

I am now on my old, slow backup box.

There has to be someting falsely telling the computer that the HD is full.

Thoughts?

Thanks.

Ive been looking at my friends Toshiba Satellite laptop for sometime now. The laptop started off with vista and soon after got some type of virus that made the laptop terrible and i didn't want all the work of fixing it so i told him to get windows 7. After i formatted the computer and installed win 7 and gave it back to him the computer started getting messages that there is no log on process and the laptop wasn't able to log on in normal or safe mode. Now that i formatted it again and put another win 7 copy on it and gave it back the computer is receiving critical errors an cant repair them but wont boot up. The funny thing is it only happens when he has it, any advice on why this could be happening to a fresh copy of win 7 with Norton 360 installed? Ive had windows 7 for months with absolutely no problems but he has problems with it days after he gets it.

Thanks, Zack

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite M35 laptop that continues to freeze. I am running Windows XP Home Edition and have 1.5 GB of Ram and 80 GB Hitachi HDD. Because of the freezes, I replaced my hard drive, reinstalled factory OS with drivers, changed my battery, changed and upgraded my memory but as soon as I log on to Windows........it freezes. One thing I can say is that the first time I log on, it stays up for about 5 to 10 mins before it freezes. After, as soon as my profile gets up and running, freezes. I have enough time to move my cursor over to the start button and click on anything and it freezes.

I don't know what else to do. I have changed everything I am able and this thing does not want to stay up.

Have anyone heard of Toshiba having this problem? Please let me know the next step to take because I have exhausted all my resource thus far!

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop with PGP Encryption running Windows 7.

While using today it suddenly gave a blue screen of death and shut down. It refused to restart properly. When I restart it is does different things and it seems random.

1. Sometimes it goes to the PGP screen and then does one of the following:
a. won't let me type
b. refuses to accept my password
c. accepts the password and gets stuck on identification verification
d. accepts the password and then freezes on a black screen.

2. Sometimes it goes to a BIOS setup.

3. Sometimes it says "boot failed" and gets stuck. Sometimes it goes to the PGP screen (but messed up)

4. Sometimes it asks what to boot from (HDD, CD/DVD etc). I choose HDD and it goes around in a circle again.

ONE time it gave the option of Safe Mode and I wish to God I had chosen it and done a system restore. But alas it won't work.

Any help?!?

I should also mention that I saw on a forum where someone with a similar problem found that their hard drive had simply come loose. I opened it up and the hard drive indeed was loose, but I plugged it back in with the same problem continuing.

I have a Toshiba Satellite 2595 laptop that originally had Win 98 OS installed on it. It has a DVD drive that would play DVD movies. It has a Celeron 400 cpu with the max of 192MB of RAM. I installed Win 2000 Pro OS and now the DVD player sputters as it plays a DVD-sound and video stops and starts. Is it because of th OS that this is happening? I did install a new DVD RW drive with the same results. I appreciate any help, thanks.

Hello,
I have a Toshiba Satellite A215-S6804. Has Vista OS. Everything has been fine with it until a few days ago. When I go to shut it down at the end of the day, I do it the "normal" shut down way. The problem is that when I start it the next morning, the battery is not fully charged. What is happening is that rather than shutting down, it is going to sleep and using the battery I want it totally shut down and not going to sleep. I didn't start it up for a couple of days, which is unusual, as I normally use it daily (when I use it, it is always plugged in and not running on battery), and the battery was at like 40%! I have noticed that when I shut it down, the lights on the front of it go out, but the ones that run across the top of it, are staying on...even when I close the lid. I hope this is making at least a little sense, I'm sorry

I would love some suggestions, please. I did go to control panel, power options?, and system settings, but was unsure what to do once there.

Thanks so much
Blondie

A:Help with shut down on Toshiba Satellite laptop

your putting the machine to sleep and not shutdown you can fix this a couple ways

click on the start orb

you will see on the right there is a "power button"

dont click that, vista has that on sleep by defult,

next to the "power button" is a symbol that looks like a lock

and finnaly next to that is and arrow pointing right

go ahead and click on that arrow, and from there you should see a menu

Switch users
logg off
lock

restart

sleep
shutdown

go ahead and hit shutdown

i have attached a file called image 1 take a look at that

------------------------------
the second way is by telling vista to make the "power button" shut down instead of sleep.

first, hit the start orb, from there search the term "power"

you should get results and click on "power options"

from there you will be at the power options screen and on the left side you will see 5 options

require a password on wake up

chose what the power buttons do

create a power plan

chose when to turn off the display

change when the computer sleeps

you will want to click on number 2 "chose what the power buttons do"

the first question will be "when i hit the power button" click on the drop down menu and select shut down.
