Re: Locked out!!

Is it the Windows login screen, or is it a password box that comes up immediately?

Re: Locked out!!

I have a Toshiba Satellite P105-S6084 laptop that I never put a password on, that now asks for a password to start up.  For awhile I would either hit F2 for settings, or F12 to go into BIOS/CMOS settings.  Frustrated not finding a fix through various forums, and Toshiba exclusive sites other than to find out that it was not a terribly uncommon problem with both Win7, and Win8 (more so with Win7), I put it back in it's case and used one of my other computers.  I have Win8 on it, and decided to see if it would work after a 5 month hiatus.  Now for the first time when I boot it up, it asks me to use the Biometric finger scanner which I had never used before, or hit backspace to enter the BIOS password.  I can't get in to my own computer and don't know what to do. Not even the backup disks I had created before seem to be readable.  Please advise.

You can reset a Windows password, but if it is indeed a BIOS password, it would require servicing to remove unfortunately.
