Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook ?

Can not operate computer because I messed up the password at the beginning of start up. After 3 tries it shuts down. Can not get into startup to fix the problem. I there another way to get in?


Answers :

The best way is to try and reset your CMOS. This a chip\015\012inside which holds the password details. IF you feel comfortable enough, open\015\012up your laptop and look for a battery, similar to one in a watch. Unplug this,\015\012and leave it for 10 seconds and then try plugging it back in. If this doesn’t\015\012work, call Toshiba up and in some cases they can give you an administrator\015\012password to override this issue.
