Apparently this laptop is new (Toshiba Satellite A300) but has never been used since being purchased 3 months ago. Anyone know what the factory default password for this laptop might be?
Remove the black pastic tape under the memory module, short the 2 pins of
C837 (next to flat pack IC 32 pins ) by soldering together, refit memory and allow laptop to boot up into windows, password is now removed....undo solder and reassemble......Put that in your pipe Toshiba and smoke it
