Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite M20-S257 Notebook ?

I bought this toshiba satellite m20 in an auction. its asking for an administrator password. HOw can i remove the password?


Answers :

Is the BIOS asking for a password or is Windows asking for a password? If it's the BIOS then you might never get the password off. Seldom can you remove the password from a laptop's BIOS without already knowing the password. If it's Windows that's asking for the password, then try reinstalling your operating system. This will get rid of the password and anything else that may be lurking around in the computer from the previous owner.
