Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S5879 Laptop ?

Paraental code is locked and we have no ideal what it was

\015 Our little girl changed the code and we cant watch rated R or above how do we change the code or is there a code to undo what was done?\015

Answers :

The intent of parental control device is to keep the bad stuff away from the little ones. That being said I don't know of any way to defeat the code. I've had many customers come into the shop and say that the code is on and that can't get into their hard drives. Well that code that blocks the kids also blocked the technicians. Sorry
Go to "Start", "Control Panel", look for "User accounts" and from there you can change the parental controls. If you are using Vista there is information on there that will explain it. I'm not sure if XP has the same help screen.
Good luck.
