Preferred Solution: Why do i get a enter password screen on my Toshiba Satellite laptop on start up

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: Why do i get a enter password screen on my Toshiba Satellite laptop on start up

To unlock the laptop, you type the ladies password. Once unlocked, create your own login with your own password.

I'm having a problem with a Toshiba Satellite L300D. After I reinstalled the HDD it would beep. To solve this I went into BIOS to look and see if the board had some sort of intrusion setting. When I exited the BIOS and restarted I know get the Enter Current Password (with a blue background on a black screen) with continuos beeps. The thing is it seems to auto enter in 10 characters (*) and then stop. There are no other options.

I have searched unsuccessfully for any info about this and I cant even find where the CMOS is located which I think is soldered onto the board.

Has anybody had any similar experience like this?
I would really appreciate any help its driving me crazy.

Hi everyone,  I was hoping you geniuses can help me get my Toshiba Satellite C655-S5514, that's running Windows 7 Home Premium, up and running again.  I looked over the other forum topics but couldn't find what I was looking for, so I thought it would be better to ask directly.  Here's my issue, This laptop has sat in my closet for about a year.  I haven't been using it since I also have a desk top.  Anyway, I pulled the laptop out today and plugged in the power cord, opened the screen and then hit the power button.  When I did, the screen showed the Toshiba logo screen and then immediately went to the black screen with the blue box that says Enter Password, BUT all of a sudden, the password box automatically filled up and then the laptop started a long, continuous beep.  Not a beep, beep, beep, etc., but just one long beep.  When I press the keyboard buttons, like the backspace or anything else, it doesn't do anything. Now, if I turn it off and then back on, it keeps doing the same thing EXCEPT, if I hold down any key and then turn on the laptop, the same screens will come up but the password window won't auto full and it doesn't beep.  Once I let go of the keyboard key I'm holding down, the password window will only auto fill 2 digits instead of filling up all the way and there's no beep at all on the times I try this.  If anyone can help me, I would forever be in your debt. ...

it's seems to be locked.
it only displayes the camera screen, and it has to be unlocked.
when i touch the unlock button on the screen the computer turns off/sleep state.
because when i touch the touchpad i get the screensaver.
then i can enter the camera screen by going from above to under on the screen,
and by going from under to above it turns off/sleep state.
the windows button on the keyboard and on the ipad don"t respond.
so to me it seems the unlock button doesn"t function correct and
i can"t enter the windows/desktop screen anymore.

maybe u know the solution for this !

Hello, I have a problem with my Satellite A300-14S PSAJ0E-00W00PSK.

*Screen with input "Enter password" appears every time when I turn it on.* When I put wrong password 3 times, my laptop turns off. I had installed windows 7 with ubuntu for 2 years with no problems but I cannot boot any operating system now (even when I boot with inserted CD/DVD with windows/ubuntu).

*When can I get correct password? Or it is another solution of this problem?*

Thank You for any advice!

Answer:Satellite A300 - "Enter password" on startup screen

I presume your notebook is locked with BIOS password.
BIOS password cannot be set from alone but I don?t understand your situation.
Either you have blocked your notebook with BIOS password or someone have done it without your knowledge.
Have you some explanation for this situation.

Anyway, if BIOS password is not known to you, you must contact nearest Toshiba service and ask for help. They can remove it for you.

Answer:Satellite C850D problem blue screen "Enter password"

Hmmm?. Looks like a BIOS password.

Could it be possible that another user/person set it on your notebook?

However, I have no idea why this appears but as far as I know the unknown BIOS password can be reset only by an authorized service provider in your country.

My son purchased a Toshiba Satellite x205 laptop at a yard sale and they did not provide a password for the BIOS. Is there anything I can do about it??? Thanks.

Answer:No Password for Toshiba Satellite x205 laptop

There is an old trick that might work here. I don't know that laptop model off the top of my head but with what I can tell you, maybe you can research a bit and find out where it is. Unplug the laptop and take the battery out. Then, remove the CMOS battery and leave it all unplugged for about 20 minutes (just in case) and put everything back together. This will reset the BIOS for you where no password is needed. Jonas "Jackal" Learhttp://www.sbccrew.comServing the South Bay Since 1999

i am fixing toshiba satellite laptop for a friend of mine; i dont know the specs, model number, or anything. when he bought it from a friend of his, the thing came with a password. after turning it on, the Toshiba logo appears and goes straight to asking for the password. when he told me about this problem, i thought is was an xp password, however, upon turning it on i found this out. im guessing that the password was created with the motherboard. Any help with getting this password off? if i have to take it apart, do you have any knowledge of taking one apart or a guide book. thx

Answer:toshiba satellite laptop password removal

Take out the CMOS battery for a couple minutes, replace it and that should reset the BIOS to defaults, including the BIOS password.

Hello there

So I'm experiencing strange BitLocker behaviour. I have this PC at work. Clean Windows 8 x64 installation, 3 HDD (AHCI), no SSD.

After I set up BitLocker to encrypt "C" partition, it gave me pop-up window, that I should restart PC to test the BitLocker loader. So I clicked Yes. And after few seconds I got this:


Mind, I'm still ABLE TO type password (i can't see sh** though), after I hit enter Windows IS booting, but it's really weird to see above picture instead of:

My GFX is OK, I tested it with games, benchmarks etc.
BitLocker simply cannot, for whatever reason, use my video card properly and displays those weird lines. After all - it hasn't loaded the whole Windows yet. Than again, it IS a bit strange, as Windows installers tend to work fine.

Any thoughts people?

Kind Regards

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop with PGP Encryption running Windows 7.

While using today it suddenly gave a blue screen of death and shut down. It refused to restart properly. When I restart it is does different things and it seems random.

1. Sometimes it goes to the PGP screen and then does one of the following:
a. won't let me type
b. refuses to accept my password
c. accepts the password and gets stuck on identification verification
d. accepts the password and then freezes on a black screen.

2. Sometimes it goes to a BIOS setup.

3. Sometimes it says "boot failed" and gets stuck. Sometimes it goes to the PGP screen (but messed up)

4. Sometimes it asks what to boot from (HDD, CD/DVD etc). I choose HDD and it goes around in a circle again.

ONE time it gave the option of Safe Mode and I wish to God I had chosen it and done a system restore. But alas it won't work.

Any help?!?

can anyone advise. I am not IT expert but this is my issue/story
above laptop under warranty would not start up. Power there but just wouldn't screen
tried everything replacing battery etc
took it back to store who checked it over

this was their official report
From customer services - After an Over night charge, the computer booted up without concern. Once in Windows, the trackpad was non-responsive. Ran Faultfinder (Company Software that scans all components of a computer and tests them for faults) in both Windows and BIOS (pre Windows), and discovered the trackpad was working in BIOS but not Windows. This would indicate a software fault, as the hardware was physically working. We also ran a HealthCheck (which is a piece of Company Software that asses and fixes small software concerns, such as de-fragmentation, temporary files, updates and searches for virus' etc). Software faults are not contained within the warranty

i wasnt happy with the accuracy of the report as they had called me before hand to say that they had got it working but the mouse trackpad wasnt working so had to reboot it and when I asked if all my data had been lost they confirmed it had. They said the track pad still wasn't working so as this was a software issue it wasn't covered under warranty.

So I questioned why the report didn't mention that the machine had been rebooted/reformatted and all the data lost. the response I got was emailed to me

Hi, I'm having trouble with the screen on my Toshiba Satellite L775-S7352 when it reaches the Welcome screen on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. This happens while reaching the Windows Welcome screen & sometimes it will reach the desktop before going fuzzy. It boots fine into Safe Mode.

I've already checked the HDD and the Memory - they are fine... I've done a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit from the manufacturer's recovery disks - the screen and everything else worked fine even through the first round of Windows Update (193 files) the machine rebooted after the updates and I checked for more updates. As soon as the installation of the second round of updates began the screen went buggy.

So I formatted the HDD and tried another reinstall - I successfully reinstalled the system and this time the screen went buggy trying to search for the first update for this reinstall...

Is this an issue with the screen or the GPU? any ideas?

Answer:Toshiba Satellite L455D Will NOT start after Starting Windows Screen

The PXE error indicates that the laptop is not seeing the HD and eventually trying to boot from a Network (which you don't have). Basically, the HD is going bad or has gone bad.

Are you sure you booted from the CD? Did you get the message to hit any key to boot from DVD when you booted from the disc? (Because you got the same screen with cursor, I am thinking that you may not have actually booted from the CD/DVD.) If you booted from the CD it should have looked like option 2 here:

The lcd screen backlight work fine, but screen is reddish. When I connect the external monitor to the laptop the video is great. When I installed a another used lcd screen into laptop the is white, and no video. So, I ordered another video cable hoping that this will fix the problem. What could cause the lcd screen to be white? The external monitor work good with the laptop, I am not getting any video to the lcd screen. Could the video on the motherboard be bad?

Answer:toshiba satellite a40 laptop-LCD SCREEN

I don't think you have a bad video card if the image on the external monitor is fine. It sounds like its either the video cable or the backlight inverter. If the original lcd screen is bright enough and clear enough (except for the reddish tint) then I'd suggest trying the new video cable with the old screen. If you still get a reddish tint then I'd recommend replacing the backlight inverter (if you can - not all laptops allow this).

The only reason I can think the new screen isn't working is due to no/out-of-date/incompatible drivers. Still, not sure why the screen would be white. Have you tried the screen with a different laptop?

First time poster and member. I was searching for Windows 7 Update Won't Start or Windows 7 Update won't run.

I had just restored the above laptop via the Restore discs that you can burn from the laptop. Upon completion of the installation I attempted to run Windows Update and received the following message. Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.

Now, the case was that I was restoring the system because I had replaced a defective hard drive with a brand new one, and therefore it's a safe bet that there was no virus, malware, or such. I searched for two days and found lots of ideas of how to fix it, but became very frustrated at some of the complex fixes, although they may very well fix a particular issue.

Anyway, I skipped all that and went to Microsoft's website and downloaded the Windows 7 SP1 ISO and mounted it to a virtual drive. It installed fine and now windows update works correctly.

I figured I would go ahead and post my problem and solution because I'm sure there's plenty of others that have had or will have this problem. This does not give an answer as to why it happened, but it certainly gives a solution.

Below is the screen that appeared in the beginning.

Answer:Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7052 Laptop Windows 7 Update Will Not Start

Sounds like the system restore discs that were created have gotten corrupted, which can happen. Even burning the ISO can get corrupted, either bad sectors on the disk, files missing or skipped any number of things.

Like most of us on here, we prefer the ISO and doing a clean install with out all the factory installed bloat-ware that can hinder and slow a system down.

Try an external monitor on it as first step.If you never ever see anything at all on the screen then it is almost certainly a hardware fault but what happens on the external will tell us more.Also let us know whether the computer "appears to start" or not (lights, fan sounds etc).Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

upon turning on the laptop the screen will turn white if you hold around the frame in certain areas it will sometimes work but then if the monitor if it is bumped or moved it will go back white....I'm wondering if it is a loose cable issue or something else. Can someone please advise me on this?

Answer:my toshiba satellite l655 laptop screen is all white

You could check the cable connector at the screen end but from what you've said most likely it is a screen fault. The connector at either end of the cable can give issues, as can the cable itself. Mostly the cable goes bad around where it hinges and often when you move the lid down to nearly closed you see the picture come and go or flicker.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is there any way to replace a broken Toshiba Satellite Laptop LCD screen? My son accidentally broke it by closing the laptop on top of it's mouse is what I'm assuming. There is nothing otherwise wrong except for the screen and I can't stand having to hook a monitor up to it so I can work on it. Also is it hard to replace the screen or is this something that a computer repair shop needs to do? Thank you in advance.

Answer:Solved: Broken Toshiba Satellite Laptop Screen

Hi there,

Yes, it is very much possible to replace the screen. Usually they run between $150-250, depending on where you find it. And most screens are relatively easy to install as long as you have a small screwdriver and some patience. Someone can easily guide you through it if you have any trouble, but a computer store will charge you a MINIMUM of $60 for labor, if not more, plus handling fees for the screen itself. I'd recommend buying a new screen online and then coming back here and I can guide you through it.

Also, which model Toshiba do you have exactly? I am familiar with most, but just to make sure.

Hope this helps.

My mom was on her Toshiba laptop this morning playing a game when "all of a sudden it went to a blue screen then went black." Her words, I was not there. Now it wont start. It will turn on but it wont boot up at all. All I get is a black screen. I have tried turning it on plugged in with the battery out thinking maybe just the screen went out or something. I have a bad feeling the hard drive went out and everything was lost. If possible, I would really like to save anything possible as she has all her files from school on it.

i have recently been having a problem with my toshiba equium a100-027 laptop, which is running on vista.
when i start my laptop i just get a black screen with the mouse cusor on, after the toshiba welcome screen
if i try and start in safe mode the same happens.

this has been occuring the last week or so, but starting in safe mode and doing a system restore seemed to fix the issue for a few days. but now i cant even start it in safe mode.

the only things that i have installed lately are windows updates, and avg updates, and the new firefox.

i think it is something to do with the update which must install after the few days and trigger the problem again

but as i cant start windows i am stuck as a way to fix the issue, any help you could give would be much appreciated

Hi. I'm basic computer user posting on behalf of my grandad who lives several hours away. I've been trying to help him by phone but no success so far.

He has Toshiba Satellite L350D running Windows 7. For several days he's met black screen on startup. He's tried a few online suggestions (that I found via Google) that didn't help (hold power 30 secs, hold power 60 secs, remove battery, external monitor, several function keys). A couple of times he found tapping f11 during startup enabled him to use laptop, but that way has since failed to work.

Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

In the manual and everywhere else I've read, it says to restart or power up pressing FN + F2.

I have tried holding them whilst powering on. I have tried powering on then pressing these. I have tried powering on, holding them for a second then letting them go, exactly as it says in the manual.

Whatever I do, it goes straight passed and into the windows login.

A colleague of mine has a Toshiba Satellite Pro C50-A-1MM laptop.

He is not particularly computer savvy.
He could not get on with Windows 8.1 and subsequently took it to a software/hardware supplier who uninstalled Windows 8.1 and installed Windows 7.

On starting it up all worked ok.
The necessary registration items were filled in at the start including a password for the start up screen. Subsequently he then booted up and the password sign in screen appeared.

He put in his password but the system would not accept it. He is certain of the password he chose but the system wont accept it.

He cant get past this problem to allow him to get into the machine to allow him to reset password. He cant do a reset of the password from the sign in screen because its asking for a floppy disc and his machine does not have a disc drive.

Hi, I have a Toshiba laptop (Satellite C850) (using Windows 7), while in use it just shut off and now when I turn it on it will start up to a black screen with a white line in the left hand corner of the screen then after a few seconds it will turn off and then start back up with the same white line and then turn off again and then restart and so on. It will do this and won't stop unless I turn the power button off. How do I fix this?? I have tried leaving it for a long while, I have tried unplugging it and taking the battery out and putting back in and turning it on again, but still no change. I can't get the boot menu up either I have tried pressing f12 and all the f buttons but nothing. I'm not very good at getting computers to work, would someone please be able to help me?

From the day I got this laptop it always had battery problems, it would always say please replace your battery and have an x on the battery sign in the task bar, and now it has gotten to the point where I can only have my laptop on with it plugged into the power cord and it will turn straight off if I shut it down. Could this play a part in what is happening now with it?

I am worried too because all my assignments and work is on my laptop, if I can't get it to start up is there any way I can save all my work that was on it?

I really hope someone can help me, thanks for reading

Answer:Toshiba laptop won't start up.. Black screen, white line

Did you purchase this new? You indicate you've had issues since day one, so why did you decide to keep it instead of replacing it with a working one?

Anyway, your problem is either a loose connection to the display or an onboard graphics card problem. To troubleshoot, connect your laptop to an external display via the VGA or HDMI out ports. If you can successfully boot into Windows, then it's a guaranteed problem with your laptop display.

Also, can provide a picture of your screen while it's exhibiting this behavior?

To address your last concern, you should be able to remove its internal 2.5" hard drive and install it in a new device (or purchase an adapter) to access your data.

Today I tried to boot up my laptop but I am stuck at a blinking cursor on a black screen.

To make matters work my keyboard doesn't work either so I can't use F2 or F12 before it boots to the black screen.

Any idea what the problem could be? I'm stumped and thinking the laptop may just be trash now.

Answer:Toshiba Laptop won't start up- blinking cursor on black screen

Most often failure to boot disk is a user failure, not hardware. Keep trying, more vigorously. Sometimes what helps is to reset the CMOS which can also be done by pulling the battery if you can access it easily enough on your lappy.

You need to work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

There are some Boot disks/flash sticks provided in the steps that will boot themselves without user input so I'd boot Hiren’s BootCD 15.1 or Hiren's BootCD From USB Flash Drive to run an A/V test, test your HD and RAM, Check File System and Active partition with Partition Wizard on Hirens.

But if you can't get the Win7 installer or Repair CD to boot you may need to rescue your files using Rescue disk in Step 9, then wipe the HD using Partition Wizard on Hirens, which will force the installer to start to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

You can also try getting the inferior Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility if you can get the Fkey to boot it.

Hi All, how have u been.

It's been 2 months I have bought the laptop Satellite A300-1PH. Yesterday, first time I tried to see my system BIOS by pressing F2, but it required Password to enter onto BIOS but I never put the password as I am very first time opening it.

Can anybody tell me what is the exact problem?

Answer:Satellite A300-1PH - Why I have to enter a BIOS password?

Maybe the shop who sold you the laptop put a Password on the BIOS?

Give them a call and ask if they put BIOS passwords on their laptops.

If they say no, then you should send the laptop to an Authorized Service Center. There is a list of ASP's on the Toshiba website in the support section.

Call Toshiba, tell them you need a recovery disk for the laptop that is now unbootable. The windows serial should be on a tag on the bottom of the notebook. The recovery disk is not free but at least your friend will have the correct recovery CD with all the proper drivers for the laptop.

I've also seen this site mentioned as a place to buy recovery CDs.

Hi there,

I developed a problem with my desktop pc yesterday. I was gaming and the screen began to flicker then the game crashed - citing "rendering device lost". I tried to re-load this again and the same thing happened again, this time with a BSOD. I tried a different game and the same thing occured, took slightly longer though. Given it was late I went to bed.

Today on loading up the sign in screen was flickering lots, I entered my password and was met by a black screen. The computer continued to make fan noises as if it was working, but nothing on my screen. This happened again. On restaring my computer the crash report read

This is a problem I've never encountered in the past (and, believe me, I've encountered hundreds of them). When I turn on my desktop pc, everything is working fine until I come to the log in screen. My curser is an arrow, and it works fine, moves around the screen as it should, until I try to place it into the "type your password" area. At that point, the curser arrow turns into a hand, and it won't allow me to type my password, which means I'm unable to get on line.

I've tried everything I know how to try; unplugging the machine, rebooting, trying a different mouse, etc. Nothing works. Can someone advise me what to do in this situation?

Thanks for your help.

Windows 10 has been working fine since install on my Dell desktop. Then one day when I went to use it, I can't enter any info on the user/password screen. When the PC starts it goes to the screen with wallpaper, time and date. When I touch any key or mouse click it goes to the screen to select user and enter password to log in. At that point the screen goes to black within half a second or so. I can't click on anything. After about 30 seconds it returns to the wallpaper, time and date screen. I have restarted the PC numerous times, but no change. I can get into the F2, but see no place to restore to earlier date, etc. TIA

Answer:On my screen it all ways says enter password but I forgot it

It is against this forums policy to provide help for password problems except in exceptional circumstances because we have no idea whether you are the rightful owner. Your next step is to contact the distributor and be prepared to provide proof of ownership. Your specs say Win 7, this is the Win 8 forum!message edited by Ewen

windows 10 HP Pavilion 15- n259Tx ( Can't type Password in login screen)

I am facing this issue that I can't type Password in login screen in windows 10.

When I press key to enter password nothing happened. Password field is blank, it is not detecting keystrokes.

I ran chkdsk /f and /r , no issue found. I ran through safe mode and then i was able to enter password. But when I again tried to login normally I couldn't enter password.

Later I did factory reset by pressing f11 key (using HP recovery manager) which wiped everything and from windows 10 it got restored to original windows 8.

So now in windows 8 during first login I entered password and it worked.

I restarted my system and Woah same problem again. I couldn't enter password.

One of my PCs suddenly developed a habit to black out
the screen at login time right after I click owner, put password and Enter.

It was working fine before this, I do not connect it to Internet, yet I transfer some files
using USB memory stick from other PC which is connected.

Interestin thing that when I chose F8 for safe mode the PC that generates garbage bag black
screen works fine as far as I can tell. I can see my files in directories and open them
(clearly I checked only a few).

Is it a virus or I changed some setting during last log out ?
Thank you.

Answer:Screen Gets Black After Enter On Owner Password

There are several things that could cause this, the most likely being a corruption of your video drivers. To start with, uninstall the current video drivers from your system while in Safe Mode (go to Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs).

If this doesn't fix it, post back and we'll go through the steps for checking out your hard drive, your file system, and the MBR/Boot sectors of the hard drive.
