There is a password on this computer ... it is a Toshiba Satellite L305-S5921 and my friend's husband found it in the garbage. Was wondering if there was some way to get past the password so I can delete any files on it, but keep the operating system intact ... without having to go to some Tech guy and pay a bunch of money.

Anyone have any ideas on how to help?

Thanks!

Due to the fact that we cannot verify the truthfulness of your request, we cannot offer any other help to recover any passwords for any system or software installed on your (or anyone Else's) computer. You may very well be asking for legitimate help in a legitimate situation but we cannot be sure of this. For all we know you could be a child trying to get into a parent's account or worse, someone trying to gain access to information that you have been explicitly denied access to by someone of higher authority.

If you have any problems with this please contact a Moderator or an Admin...

Thanks to Dsenette for the instruction.




Due to the nature of online help we are not able to verify ownership, and will not be able to help bypass or recover any user passwords, cd keys, license codes, serial numbers, etc.

Sorry, no I have no problems with it ... very wise ... I am indeed being truthful, but you have no way of knowing that. I will have to ask my brother-in-law ... I hate asking him for help ...

Thanks for pointing out the 'security issue' involved ... after all the OTHER help I've gotten here ... I'm still cool!
