SOURCE: I GOT A TOSHIBA SATELLITE

I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop. It is impossible to remove a HD/SSD drive password, there are no backdoor passwords and if the Toshiba has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the HD/SSD is password locked then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new HD or SSD, install Windows plus the Toshiba device drivers and programs to get a working laptop.

SOURCE: how do i enter supervisor password on my lenovo

Step 1: Enter Safe Mode

a)Start or re-start your computer.

b)Before the Windows 7 loading screen appears, Press 'F8? to enter Advanced Boot Options.

c)Use arrows to choose 'Safe Mode' when you can see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

d)Press 'Enter' and wait for Windows 7 files to load.

e)Log on with an administrator account when you can see the log on screen

Note: Well, when you are presented with the Advanced Boot Options screen, there are 3 types of Safe Mode. They are the Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking and Safe Mode with Command Prompt, and the 3 options are all available for you. Here above we take Safe Mode as an example, but if you choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt, you'll need to input related to command prompt to reset the password.

Step 2: Reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7

Now you could diagnose and solve some serious computer problems in the safe mode and reset the forgotten Windows login password in Windows 7 as follows:

1.Click 'Start' button, input 'lusrmgr.msc' into the Search box and press 'Enter'.

2.In the 'Local Users and Groups screen', click 'Users'.

3.Right-click the account that you need to reset the password for, and then click 'Set Password'.

4.Type and confirm the new password, click 'OK'. (You can go to 'Local Users and Groups' screen by right-clicking 'Computer' to select 'Manage' on desktop.)

Step 3: Log on your password protected PC again with the new password since you have successfully performed Windows password reset for Windows 7.

SOURCE: HDD password for Toshiba Satellite 1400

You get 3 attempts,if after which you have'nt got it right you need to shut it down and try again. But the easiest way is to contact Toshiba,Because if the laptop is genuinely yours you would have registered it when you bought it!!, if you did'nt then your stuck in a sticky place,like when Sticky the stick insect got stuck on a sticky bun!! Basically you will have to prove that you are the rightful owner i.e. Proof of purchase

SOURCE: How to unlock hdd/ssd password on toshiba

Step 1Turn on your laptop. Press the "F2" key when the first loading screen appears. This will load the BIOS. You'll only have a second or two to press this key before Windows begins to boot. If you're not fast enough and the Windows screen comes up, simply restart and try again.
Step 2Use the right-arrow key to highlight the "Security" tab. This is the third tab from the right.
Step 3Press the down-arrow to enter the Security Settings menu. Scroll down to "User Password," listed beneath the "HDD/SSD Password Select." This will open a pop-up window with three text fields.
Step 4Type your current password into the "Current Password" field. Press "Enter." Type your new password into the "New Password" field and press "Enter." Type the same password again into the "Confirm New Password" field and press "Enter." The "Password" window will close.
Step 5Press the "F10" key to save your new settings and exit the BIOS. Your laptop will now boot normally.
Tips & WarningsHDD password can be changed as many times as necessary. However, once you enable password protection, you can never delete it.

My TOSHIBA LAPTOP SAT#L505-S5990 shows HDD#1SSD #1User Password.


Up to my knowledge, you really have some problem here. Is that password yours or did you buy this SSD drive used?
I understand that SSD password only can be removed by a Master password and only provider has accesss to this master password. So if you have a receipt of your purchase, you should contact original provider (i.e. if it's a Samsung drive, with Samsung distribuitor) explan and prove your situation and they should remove tha password with their master password.

Check my answer, actually I've never encountered this situation just remember the case of a friend who bought a used SSD and had this problem
