Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
Does anyone know how to bypass the HDD/SSD password on a toshiba laptop. I have tried all the various ways of bypassing the user and admin password, but nothing bypasses the HDD password. Toshiba charge excessive fee for this repair, and I believe it’s their fault . Even removing the hard drive and putting it into another machine won’t allow HDD access. No password was ever set for this, it just appeared one day and not been able to use it since. Thanks in advance.
Others have been able to change the password in BIOS. Found this:
1. The HDD password cannot be removed using Security Assist.
2. Using SETUP BIOS (i.e. start machine; Hold Esc; Press F1), Tab to the HDD Password section which should be displayed as follows:
HDD = Built-in HDD
HDD Password Mode = USER Only
User Password = Registered
3. Tab to the "User Password" field and simply enter the old password and then a new one twice (once to verify) as one would do normally. If you don't want a password, just press "enter" twice

A USB/SATA jump cable to connect it as a slave drive will access files on it but not accounts it is logged into.
$25-35 and the best piece of hardware you'll ever have for a computer

the default password should be "123456".
If u did changed the default password, then u need to enter setting mode 08 - 263 to check or edit the password.
