businesslegions :

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Hello Marco! Have patience please! I have to Google translate our conversation here ...

businesslegions :

ok

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Have you seen my question?

businesslegions :

yes

businesslegions :

its the BIOS password

businesslegions :

it somes on after the Toshiba Logo

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

??? I have NO sense of the bios?

businesslegions :

do you know how it could have been turned on?

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

There has not been anything new before. I turned off my computer one evening.
The next day when I turn comes Toshiba logo and "Leading Innovation" just below.
Then: Password .... and the cursor blinks.

NOTHING else! And now I'm stuck with a new PC can not be opened ...

businesslegions :

what is the model of the Toshiba?

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Its Toshiba model Satellite C855o

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

C855

businesslegions :

how old is the laptop?

businesslegions :

we can try to perform recovery but it requires opening the back cover

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

BRAND NEW!

businesslegions :

oh no

businesslegions :

have you tried entering passwords like 0000

businesslegions :

or password

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

No

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Skal jeg prøve med 0000?

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Shal I try 0000?

businesslegions :

yes

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

It says: "verify error!!"

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

I can try three times. Then shut it down.

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Have you experienced this problem before?

businesslegions :

yes

businesslegions :

it's a password problem

businesslegions :

it might have been accidentally turned on

businesslegions :

did you get into the BIOS?

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

I do not know what bio is or what I can do - and the problem is still there!
I tried 0000 as you suggested, but nothing happens.
PC shuts down after 3 incorrect password attempts.

businesslegions :

yes shutting down happens after 3 incorrect attempts

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

I know! Thats the problem! ;-)

businesslegions :

you can take it back to the store and tell them someone put a BIOS

businesslegions :

otherwise opening the back voids the warranty

businesslegions :

so the best option is to take it back since its only a few days old

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

I have all my accounts in there... And: have bought it on the internet.

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Ok - I must try another place to get help.

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Have a nice day.

businesslegions :

if they tell you to remove the back cover

businesslegions :

don't do it because it voids the warranty

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Ja, det ved jeg og er meget forsig med.

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Men jeg sidder her med en ny pc som ikke kan bruges.

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Frustrerende.

businesslegions :

hello?

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

Yes, I know and is very cautious with.

But I'm sitting here with a new PC can not be used.



10:48 AM


Frustrating.

businesslegions :

without know the password and without being able to open the cover at the back we're stuck

businesslegions :

unless you want to open the back cover?

businesslegions :

do you want to go ahead with that?

JACUSTOMER-wp92vrvr- :

I have only kitchenknifes so no.
I do not know what to do, I have to think about, but I shut down now.
Too bad that it did not work.
Have a nice day.

businesslegions :

ok let me know
