Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
You're out of luck. Not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you get a laptop where the person in possession of it does not know the hard drive password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner puts a lock on the Hard Drive to keep users from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have put the password lock on remotely as soon as it was stolen.
The hard drive can never be used again.

Generally, all you need to do is get on to Dell Support and get in a chat with one of their people and tell them that you are locked out by a BIOS password, and needed to get around it. After they verify that you are the owner of the laptop, they should give you a password that gets you through it.

Underneath the ram (remove ram) is a jumper marked J3
short this out for a couple of seconds.
This will reset bios right back.
Boot and go straight to bios (F2) and set your options as needed there.
Eg date, time, drives,and any other options the bios needs to be able to boot the machine. When you have done make sure you SAVE then exit which will re-boot.
If you didnt mess any bios settings you should be back in business

Here is the link to your service manual, when you click on it and bring it up...it is a pdf file so you'll need adobe or another pdf reader, go to page 40, that is the directions for resetting and removing the BIOS/hard drive password. Good luck

I removed the keyboard, unplugged the bios battery, holded down the power button about 30 secs, plugged back the bios battery, assembled the computer, didn't plug the battery and instead of that just plugged the ac adaptor and the bios passwd was gone =)
