    i have a Toshiba Tecra 510 CDT laptop that someone gave me. Model # PA1232U. We don't know the password. when i turn it on, i get a blank/black screen with "password =" in the top left. the sticker on the machine says "windows 95", so it's an older machine. does anyone know how to boot up and re-set the password?

    i dont think there is an easy way to reset the password. a lot of PC you have a jumper on the mother board or you can remove the bios battery.

    I think toshiba use a some form of loopback connector
