Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra M5 Notebook ?

I forgot my power on password,...can you help me with this problem pls.


Answers :

You need to build a hardware device that plugs into the printer port.

Get a 25 pin male D sub connector, and solder various wires
to the pins numbered below. The pins on the connector are numbered 1 to 25
For a picture of this hardware device (dongle) go to :-
http://www.tilman.de/sonstiges/toshiba/dongle1.jpg

Connect these pins together by soldering thin insulated wires to the following pins :-
1-5-10,
2-11,
3-17,
4-12,
6-16,
7-13,
8-14,
9-15
Plug the dongle in the printer port and boot up the laptop, you will then be able to bypass the BIOS password and go into the BIOS to reset/remove the password.

I own a Toshiba Satellite laptop (A135-S4427) running Windows Vista. The laptop has worked well for over one year, but has recently shut off without prompting. When I attempt to restart, it will either reboot, get to the desktop, and then shut down again; or will not start up at all and the power light will blink a series of colors (blue, pink, then amber). I've removed the battery and tried to run the laptop off the power cable alone, but nothing changes from above. I've reseated the RAM. Again
