Is this a BIOS/system password that must be entered before your system loads Windows? If so, you are going to have to check with Toshiba tech support for help (be prepared to provide proof of ownership).

If this is a Windows 7 password, you may have no option other than reloading the operating system, if you can't remember the password.

Please clarify. Good luck!
