Satellite C70D asks me for my email and password

Question: Satellite C70D asks me for my email and password


I am new to this forum and purchased a Satellite C70D yesterday.
I went thru set up, It asked me for my email and password.

I entered this and the next time I logged in there was my hotmail profile photo.
I entered my password - no problem. I changed the language from Spanish to English etc etc.

I switched it on this morning and got the Toshiba Logo - then it went to blank screen and there was a large data entry box asking me for a password. I tried the same one and I get another screen showing a red data entry box saying "VERIFY ERROR!! Please reenter to continue!!


Can anyone help me please. I am operating windows 8.1

Preferred Solution: Satellite C70D asks me for my email and password

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Satellite C70D asks me for my email and password

I think I must be in the operating system as there is no need to click on the box to enter a password!!

Hi there

Pretty much every time I turn on my laptop I am being asked to enter in the date, it defaults to 1.1.2015. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can overcome this issue? Just to be clear this happens right at the point of turning the computer, i.e. before Windows even starts to load up. It must be date/time settings of the device.

Thanks for your help in advance

I picked up a brand new c70d-b-10u today from a well known retailer.
I turned it on, set the language, gave a computer name, hooked up to a wi fi and then it asked for Other User Password!

I never entered a password to start with so why is it asking for one?

I cannot get to the shop again until next week and urgently need to get up and running.

Any ideas greatly received.

Answer:Brand new Satellite C70D-B-10U wants a password?

Try to recover the notebook once again using the HDD recovery option.

The recovery procedure would reset the notebook back to factory settings… usually after that no passwords should be set…

When i start up my computer it brings up a black screen with a blue box, which says enter password.
I do not understand why this comes up, or what the password should be.

Can anyone help please?

Answer:Satellite C660 asks for password

I assume you mean the BIOS password.
Strange if the notebook asks for password which you didn?t set in the past...
However, the point is that BIOS password cannot be deleted if you don?t know the password. Only the Toshiba ASP would be able to do that...
Therefore you can solve this issue only asking a Toshiba ASP for help and for removing this password.

hopefully someone can help me

I have a Toshiba Satellite L50 laptop and when i start it up it says
+no bootable device please restart system+

It is still under waranty as it was only bought 6 months ago.
I took it back where i bought it and they told me to contact Toshiba.

I am waiting on a call back.
I am hoping someone can help. It also asks for HDD password.

Where do I find that information?

Answer:Satellite L50 won't start up - asks for HDD password

Hi Kym

I guess the Satellite L50 cannot find the bootable device (HDD) because the HDD has been secured with an HDD password and without this password the HDD isn?t accessible and the system will not boot up properly.

Did you set such HDD password in the past?
I?m asking because such password isn?t set on new notebooks. Such HDD password can be set only by notebook owner?

From my knowledge if you don?t know such HDD password, you will not be able to get access to the HDD? in such case the HDD would be useless and the data would be lost?

Therefore I would recommend you to check if someone has set the HDD password on your notebook? in case you don?t know the password, you will need to replace the HDD and to reinstall the system once again.

My aged parents have bought their first computer - the L450D-11V.

Have started it up but have been asked for a password. Retailer's help line was no help to them so they phoned dutiful daughter (me). I downloaded the manual but it simply says to follow the on screen instructions.

Can anyone who bought this model recently tell me how to get past this?

Answer:Satellite L450D-11V - Asks for password on first use

Hi mate,

Which password you mean exactly?
The BIOS password?
The HDD password?
The Windows password?

Are you sure that you didn?t set or another one?

Anyway, normally a password shouldn?t be set on first usage. You can contact an authorized service provider in your country. The guys can remove every password.

Booting of my laptop is blocked by BIOS password, though I know exactly that the password was not set. This is a known problem of some Toshiba notebooks listed here Toshiba repairs that for no charge.

I want to make sure that my notebook is listed there. But there are 5-digit model numbers where: A200-ST2041, A200-ST2042, P200-ST2071 while list of notebooks on Toshiba site includes 3-digit numbers only: 1N9, 1SM etc.

My laptop has 3-digit model number A200-1GH, model number PSAECE-02900ERU. Is there matching 5-digit number?

Answer:Satellite A200-1GH - Asks for BIOS password

The laptops on the Toshiba website are only American models so your notebook is not listed because you have a European model.

Normally a BIOS password can only removed from an ASP. In your case I would go to a local ASP. Here you can search: => Support & Downloads => Find an ASP

Answer:Satellite A100-785 asks me for a BIOS password


Strange? do you mean that the Satellite A100 ask for the BIOS password which you did not set?

However, there is not way to remove an unknown BIOS password. Only the Asp technician can do this.
Therefore you will have to contact the ASP technician who could remove the BIOS password for you.

Hi everybody,

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100. I have some problems when accessing the Internet; When I start up the Internet, there's no problem, but when MSN messenger starts up the laptop breaks down and I have to switch off the laptop manually. Could this be some sort of firewall?

Last Sunday, this problem occurred while using Skype; But now the computer completely collapsed. First the system asked for 'inserting a system disk'. I didn't know what they meant, so I turned off the computer a couple of times manually to see if it would disappear.

When I now turn on the laptop, Windows doesn't start up and the system asks in a black screen for 'the HDD password'. Does anybody know what this means and where I can find it? And does this mean that my laptop died or am I able to fix it? Can somebody help me?

Many thanks in advance!

Answer:Satellite Pro 2100 breaks down and now asks for HDD password

Unless you or someone else happened to set a BIOS password (which I'm very sure is not the case), it would seem that some sort of virus has released its payload. I suggest you use your recovery CDs to do a format and reinstallation of Windows. See your manual for more information on how to do this.

Hi all,

My Satellite P200 was working perfectly under Vista but I needed to install XP for some certain work applications.
I followed the Toshiba instructions installed the required Bios update and now for some reason my laptop is asking for a password on power up.

I never set any password, an am not aware of any.

As I said this never came up before, only after the bios update.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Answer:Satellite P200 asks for BIOS password

I have no idea why the password was set after BIOS update but I know that a BIOS password cannot be removed from the Toshiba notebook without an additional help from the ASP.

So if it?s really an BIOS password then you have to ask the ASP for password removing

The wurst laptop we ever had. We feel robbed of our money.

2 months ago we started with Ubuntu. It Still slow. IS there anybody with the same problems?



Answer:Satellite C70D-A-108 is very slow

Hi Marco

I don't have this notebook model and cannot confirm what you wrote but fact is that almost all new notebooks are pretty slow at the beginning. Many applications are set to start with Windows and this, of course, slows down boot time.
Windows updates are also set to automatic so in the background the machine will download and install many updates so this will slow down your machine rapidly.

In my opinion you should install original OS that you got with this machine and optimize it a bit.
Remove all useless stuff, change start-up option and disable automatic Windows updates.
In the past I have noticed that original preinstalled antivirus is also responsible for notebook?s performance so I don't use original preinstalled application but my own version of Avir Antivir and it runs perfectly.

Check all these options and I hope your machine will run much better than before.

I have 2 issues with my new Satellite C70D-B-32U.
When I put it in sleep mode, it does. But after about 5 minutes, it goes automatically to hibernate. This I don't want. And I don't want to disable hibernate, because I do use it when the laptop is not in use for longer periods. The power settings in control panel do not reflect this behaviour. In the settings, I specified that the laptop should never go to hibernate. Hybrid state is disabled.

And secondly, more importantly. Whenever it goes to hibernate, I can only wake it up with the power button. Not with the (internal) keyboard, not with the usb mouse. I would like an option to wake it from hibernate by pressing any key on the keyboard. In bios power on keyboard is set to on. Is there anything else I can change to have this available?
Actually if issue 1 is solved and the laptop stays in sleep mode, this issue is also solved since from sleep I can wake on a mouseclick which is also fine.

Answer:Can I replace the HDD in my Satellite C70D-B -00P model with an SSD?

Generally speaking yes, you can do this but problem is that your notebook model doesn't have HDD cover at the bottom side.
To have full access to the HDD the bottom cover must be removed completely but it should be done by authorized service only.

Of course you can try to do it alone but I?m afraid you may lose the warranty.
If possible contact nearest Toshiba service provider in your country, explain the situation and ask for help.

First of all you can change between the special function key mode (without pressing FN key) or normal (standard) mode (Hold Fn first to use standard F1-F12 functions.)

So where can i find such a file for free? It's just not normal that it is not on the site.

Answer:Need recovery files for my Satellite C70D-A-114

All you can find for free are all drivers, tools and utilities. Original recovery image (software package) is not for free and if you need it you must order recovery disc directly by Toshiba.

You can order it on

By the way: in user’s manuals document is clearly described how you can create recovery installation disc. I’m wondering you didn’t make it in the past.

Hi There,

I have had a Satellite C70D for about 18 months now, but have not used it in the past year as I have been disputing with customer services about the windows licence for the machine as I lost it when I formatted the original hard drive before installing an SSD and they wouldnt send me a copy of it. I have now bitten the bullet and bought a windows 10 licence again. However since building the machine a few days ago, I have been having a couple of issues and as it is now out of warranty, I cannot contact customer support (Who I found unhelpful even when it was in warranty!)

The first issue is when I boot up the machine, occasionally the keyboard will not work, I cannot type the BitLocker pin and I have to remove the battery and press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, this then fixes the issue for a few reboots before it goes again.

The second is that occasionally it will boot up with a red x next to the WiFi symbol, but it detects the WiFi card, usually a reboot fixes this but not always. I have reseated the card and still no avail.

Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing this? The BIOS is up-to-date as are all of the drivers.

Thanks in advance for your help

To be honest I’ve never heard about such touchpad behaviour.

If there is option to set all of them on default settings please do this and test functionality again.

many thank for any replies peter

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D - Windows 10 upgrade issue

Power off the notebook.

Then power up the unit again and press F12.
Now you should see the Advanced boot menu.
Here choose HDD recovery
Then choose language and keyboard.
Then Troubleshoot -> Advanced options ->Automatic Repair.

Hope it helps.

Hello i'm new here :)

i bought a new Toshiba Satellite C70D-B-108 but the Fn button doesnt work. Does somebody know i can fix it? The laptop runs on Windows 8 with a "classic shell".

Answer:The FN button doesn't work on my new Satellite C70D

Check please settings for ?Function keys mode?. There are two ways to use F keys:
-Special function mode ? use F keys only
-Standard F1 ? F12 mode ? use FN+Fx key

Check the settings please.

By the way: do you use original preinstalled Win8.1 that you got with your machine?

Since I bought my laptop Satellite C70D-B-300 i still having some problems:
1) I cannot turn off the laptop,(the screen turn off but laptop still running), even I cannot close session
2) Start menu and windows apps sometimes I cannot open (if I click nothing happen)
3) 3/4 times a day the laptop get in crash, I cannot do nothing, I need to shut down with power button (press for 10sec) even with ctrl+alt+del doesn't work
4) new problems with windows 10, i cannot open store, sometimes cortana and star menu doesn't work so I need to restart...but I guess is windows problem not toshiba

thanks in advance

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-300 doesn't work properly

There are too many problems.
In my opinion you should reinstall original recovery image and test notebook functionality with “factory settings” again.

Is this an option for you?

The single webcam driver isn?t available because as far as I know the Toshiba Value Added Package already contains the essential driver to get the webcam working.

The mic is part of the webcam and should be chosen in control panel ? sound ? recording tab

I have buy a Satellite C70D-A-11T and pass it on Windows 7 64 bits Home Premium.
I install all the drivers and I haven't any problems.

When I want to connect it to my TV for first time, I discover there is no sound on the TV.
I try to go on the speaker (near the clock of windows), right click, sound, first tab (I think it is "Playback" in english... I have a french Windows) and my device (TV) doesn't appear.

I come back on Toshiba Support website to download the last driver "HDMI Audio driver" for my laptop, I connect the cable, and it appear in the sound properties. I select it as my default device and the sound come right from my TV.

Great !

But when I restart my laptop (with or without the HDMI cable), the TV disappear from the list in the sound properties, the only one solution to recover the sound is to reinstall the HDMI Audio Driver.
If I start the driver installation with the "advanced" option, I have the list of drivers to install and I see all drivers are already installed, but the HDMI Audio Driver will be upgraded... I install it and it work until the next restart.

Could you explain me why the version of the driver don't stay on the system, and how to make it work without reinstall it everyday ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

The notebook supports the AMD Radeon HD 8400 graphics which is part of AMD Quad-Core A6-5200 CPU.

Answer:ODD on my Satellite C70D-A-11E wont read DVDs anymore


If optical disc drive is installed properly maybe is reading lens dirty. Try to clean it up.

Other way, if your ODD can read CDs but not DVDs it can also be hardware malfunction. The reading lens cannot be calibrated properly and cannot find the right position to read DVD media.

In such case ODD must be exchanged.

Try to clean lens up and check if the problem persists. If yes contact nearest Toshiba service provider and ask for help.

Hi there,

I was bought the above model of laptop for an early Christmas present which usually sits down in the living room, my old Satellite Pro sat down there with no issues however with this device the wireless signal is very low and I appear to be having it sitting right next to the wireless router (which is located upstairs in my sons bedroom), I wondered if there's any steps I could take to improve the signal?

It baffles me how a new system has such a poor wireless signal when my old Satellite Pro which was 6 years old had no wireless issues whatsoever.

My other issue is from the moment I switched the laptop on (yesterday when it was delivered) the updates on Windows Update are slow or don't start at all, is this an issue or just normal?

I'd appreciate any help or input at all, thank you.

Hi all,

excuse the new thread but I haven't found any answers anywhere online, just speculation and it's for different models.

So I have a C70D-B-10U, running windows 7 64bit pro. When I formatted it and updated everything, it just kept crashing when trying to play back videos on Windows Media Player. I cleaned the inside and replaced thermal paste, updated to even newer drivers, and started using VLC as my default media player. It rarely crashed BUT it always does when I try to start playing games (nothing heavy - League of Legends). Laptop seems to be doing well with memory tests, no faults detected.

I've read that this could be caused by:
Faulty GPUFaulty BatteryFaulty PSUBad Capacitors on the MOBO

Has anyone had any similar experience? I've reinstalled Windows and it's the same story. If it's a motherboard issue, I guess it would be better to just get a new one?


Answer:Satellite C70D-B-10U no warning crash (power, GPU or capacitors)

Update: I decided to test the RAM and it seems like it can't handle 8GB. Both 4GB sticks work on any slot, but when I have all of it on the machine it crashes. Do you think it is a motherboard issue?

I have a toshiba C70D-B-306 (psclee) laptop and I reinstalled windows 8.1 from a seperate DVD because i exchange the default harddrive for a fast ssd disk.

Everything works but in my device manager I have 2 unknown devices listed (with exclamation mark), as far as I know I downloaded all available drivers from toshiba support website for this laptop and installed them but the 2 unknown devices simply will not disappear.

Can someone tell me which driver I exactly need for these 2 devices?

As mentioned, i allready downloaded all drivers for this laptop and installed them, windows is ofcourse up-to-date. Also I let windows search for drivers on the Internet and on the whole drive, but no drivers where found.

Who can give me the golden tip?

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-306 - 2 unknown devices in device list

There is a good method in order to find out what drivers are missing.
First of all you should check the DEV (device) and VEN (vendor) IDs

Here is an short instruction how to find this details:

Knowing the device and vendor ID, it should not be a big deal to get the right drivers.

At the other hand you should install also additional Toshiba software (Toshiba System Driver) released for Win 8.1
Please note also that there are two Win 8.1 driver areas: ?Win 8.1 update? and ?Win 8.1 32bit/64bit? categories
In case you would not find all drivers within the Win 8.1 update check also the Win 8.1 32bit/64bit categories.

I turned off password protected file sharing. When connecting from my notebook, which I have the same username/password on to boot, it asks for a password. Even when I enter the correct password, it denies access. Please help, as I'm stumped, and I believe I've stumped google as well.

Answer:Computer with password-protected sharing disabled asks for password

How did you turn off passwords?

To access a share, you need two permissions --

1: Share permissions are on the share itself. This gives you permission to read or write to/from the share.

2: File Permissions. These are on the security tab. If you don't have enough NTFS permissions to access the files, you're not going to be able to access the files no matter what share permissions you assigned.

You need to combine these rights to get the final permissions. The most restrictive permission will win out when determining your access.

But, if you're using the same username and password on both machines, and you still can't access it, it's possibly not a permissions issue. Which is why I asked how you turned off the passwords for shares.

Would be grateful for any advice to remove the back panel.

I've removed battery, ~16 screws + 1 tiny screw at the optical drive and whilst it does 'unclick' everywhere else, there seems to be something stopping the panel being removed just above the battery compartment and don't want to force it.

Even our IT guys at work cannot work it out.

PLEASE new laptop is very slow so have purchased RAM but can't access the back.

Answer:Satellite C70D-B-30D: How to access back panel after ~16 screws removed

At first I must say that you should not remove bottom cover alone because it will cancel valid warranty. If there is no RAM cover, RAM should be exchanged or upgraded by authorized personal only.

I know every of us think it is easy to do and want to do this alone.
What I know is follow:
2 screws in the middle are fixing the keyboard. What must be removed are 14 screws and small flat screw at the optical drive. That’s all. There is no other hidden screw.

Of course there are also small plastic holders and bottom cover must be removed very gently.

I've only noticed today that when I turn up my laptop's volume up to about 28 (even with headphones in), there's this high pitch noise that comes from the speakers. And I'm sure it's the speakers and not anything else.
But the sound is sort of that real ear-killing noise so I can't listen to it for long. It even sometimes sounds like thousands of crickets - a complete nightmare

But with my volume at any level below 28 I can listen to whatever through headphones without the sound bothering me.

From your description, this is a BIOS password. *Someone* had to set it; a
BIOS password doesn't magically create itself. If your friend seriously
can't remember it, then possibly he can ask whoever *he* got the laptop
Otherwise contact the laptop mftr. for instructions. You can remove a
BIOS-level password yourself - with guidance - on some machines. On others,
the machine will need to be sent back to the laptop mftr. So you need to
call their tech support and ask.

My daughter messed her HP laptop with xp home up probably through a virus. I restored it last week and reset her account as an Admin and no password required. She called me tonight and said that the computer was working fine for the last week. Tonight when she booted up, her account asked for a password. She said that she did not set a password for the account. I had her boot it into safe mode and open the Admin account. I tried to have her change the password under her account. It would not let her change the password or delete the account. I had her set up another account to use until I can resolve the password problem. Is there a way to change the password, or delete the account? Further, any suggestions as to what could have happened. I told her to ask her classmates if any of them were playing a joke on her, but another virus problem may not be out of the question as the college network is full of them. I will get my hands on the machine early next week. One more time and she is back to pen and paper.

Answer:xp asks for a password when none was setup

Then if she does not have an antivirus program installed
Get AVG 7 here ( free ) and set it up . It will scan daily

Spy Bot and AD-Aware Se should be updated and ran at least weekly

Hi All,
First off, I'll say I am by no means a computer guy.
I lent a computer to a friend about a year ago. He finally returned it and now when I try to start it up it asks for a password right from the black screen where it is checking the system? I've tried to enter bios but once again it wants a password. I thought maybe it was the harddrive. Swapped it out but same thing so it must be something deeper.
Hopefully someone has an idea as to how I can fix this.
System says
ASUS P5A ACPI BIOS Revision 1007
AMD K6-2/450
Which was running XP.
If that helps any
Thanks in Advance

Answer:Computer asks for password

This is probably deliberate; I'd yell at him if this were my computer...It's at the BIOS level. A BIOS reset would clear it out.

try this:

Take out the CMOS clock battery for 12 hours. Hopefully, this will clear out the BIOS settings along with this password.

If this doesn't clear the password (sometimes the stored electricity in the capacitors is enough to keep it), there's usually a jumper somewhere on the motherboard to clear BIOS. Look for it in the manual for your motherboard.

I have been using Outlook Express for some years and it has always downloaded any e-mails on being opened or, if already open, by clicking "Send/receive",
For no reason I can see it suddenly started asking for a password before it would download any e-mails.
When I signed up with my ISP, some 10 years ago, I was given a numeric "customer account password" and an alpha e-mail password I have never needed to use either of these passwords andOutlook does not recognise either of the passwords.
How can I revert to the earlier state of not needing a password, or if this is not possible how do I discover the password?
PS. It is unlikely that I will get the usual reply e-mail so forgive me for any delay in replying.
The ISP that gave me this e-mail account has been taken over by Talktalk who say they are unable to assist with any e-mail program other than their own and would only go as far as giving me a "Webmail" account which is both unwieldy needing log-ins and more passwords and not compatible with my antispam program.

Hello, I have the same problem as above, except with my wireless Belkin router.

I was browsing my internet when suddenly it stopped working (I have three computers in my network - one is connected to the main broadband cable and the other two are wireless).

I followed the first solution and I am now able to re-connect, however it is asking for my password.

My wireless router never had a password before now - is there any way I can find out what it is and connect?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.
