Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite 2140CDS Notebook ?

Toshiba satellite 2140cds ask password when starting up

\015 The laptop is from my late uncle. I don't know the password and i don't want to lose files.How can i solve this?\015

Answers :

You might be able to log in as the Administrator. On the logon screen press Ctrl+Alt+Del and hold. It will give you a window to input username and password. Type in "Administrator" and leave the password blank. If that doesn't work, you can try a couple other generic passwords. If that doesn't work either, you can try logging on as "Guest" in the same fashion.

If neither of those options work, you will most likely need to reinstall windows, but there is a way to save all your files before you do that.
If it is a windows password and you cant log into your comuter with another user, look a Hiren Bootcd and boot form it. Among the list of tools you will find a windows password recovery tool. This will help you remove the earlier administrator password.
If you can log in with another user name and want only to recover your uncle's data. In windows xp you can use microsoft's back up and recovery tool to back up the data from ?:\\document and settings\\your uncles user name\\ desktop or My documents. After doing so make a restore, but when restoring goto advanced on the last wizard page select alternate selection and browse for an alternate restore folder click next twice and on this page uncheck the restore security settings checkbox click next then finish and you are done.
However if it is a cmos password that you ara talking about you need to open the back cover of your laptop somewhere near the battery and find some small circular battery (one mostly used in wrist watches might be bigger) and unplug it from 10 to 30 minutes replug it and vualla you made it.
