Hi, and thanks for using

Did you forget the password?

Is this Windows password or BIOS/Setup password?

Does it have windows xp, vista, or 7?

You can click here to download and extract the windows password recovery program file, then burn the extracted .ISO file as an image to a blank CD (use the Imgburn burning program if needed). Then you can boot the CD disk from the CD/DVD drive and follow the steps to reset the windows password; you can click here for more details.


But it can be complicated; it's easier resetting the computer to factory settings: turn off the toshiba laptop, then press & keep holding the key 0 (zero) and turn on the laptop until a system recovery menu appears.


If that does not work, do you have the windows 7 / recovery disk? Thank you.
