Today, we'll talk about how to reset Toshiba password in Windows 7 if you forgot the login password.

It works all versions of Windows, no matter which operating systems you have - Windows 7, XP, Vista, 8.1 or 10. You can even use it to create a new account on your computer with administrator rights.

Please download this Windows 7 password reset software and run it on a second accessible computer. The guide that I describe below can work with all versions of Windows machines.

Watch for a "Press [key] to enter BIOS Setup" message in the first few seconds after turning your Toshiba computer on, and immediately press the key displaying on the screen to enter BIOS. Usually, the F1, F12, ESC or F2 key should get you into the BIOS. On the Toshiba Equium F12 will enter the BIOS.

Once you enter the BIOS configuration, follow the instructions at the bottom of the screen to change which device to boot from first. In this example BIOS, you can change the boot order option via + and – keys.

Any removable device connected to your computer will be detected and listed under the Boot Device Priority, such as Hard Disk Drivers, Floppy Drivers, CDROM Drivers.

If you created a Windows 7 password reset disk on a USB drive in step 1, here you select Boot > Boot Device Priority > 1st Boot Device > Removable Devices (it may be called USB Device, USB DISK, [Brand name] in some BIOS), and choose [Your USB Drive Name] under it; if you instead created password reset CD/ DVD disk, you select Boot > Boot Device Priority > 1st Boot Device > CDROM.

Repeat the process until you have all unavailable account reset to blank password.

When everything is OK, restart your Toshiba computer by clicking the Reboot button at the bottom of the screen, and remove your disk from the computer.

Now the machine will boot from Windows as usual.

If there are any other users set up on the computer who has the level of administrative rights, you can log in the Windows 7 with that Admin account and reset the password by using Command Prompt. It should be noted that this solution won't work if you can't find such an account.
