I have inherited a toshiba sattelite laptop but it needs a password on starting up. Have tried various probable ones but no joy

Have tried taking internal battery out to clear internal bios settings

Have tried all the suggested holding down of various function keys on start up

Thats about the level of my technical ability

Dont really want to spend a lot as i know nothing else about the laptop so don't know if its worth it

Can anyone help please

Is this right at the very beginning of the boot sequence, or once the operating system has loaded?
If it's the first then it's the BIOS password, otherwise it's the operating system (Windows) password.
The possible solution will be different for the two scenarios.

I'm near Villamartin. Well, I'm in London at the moment, but will be over in Spain on Thursday for 6 weeks.
If you don't mind waiting until next week I'd be happy to take a drive up to Delores. One of our goals on this trip is to explore the area a bit more, so Delores is as good a place as any to start...

If next week would be okay with you then PM me a phone number and I'll give you a call when we get over there.
