This method should work on all models of portable computers Toshiba.
All that it is necessary to you to have:
1. Yours notebook Toshiba
2. Pure(clean) formatted diskette (720 Kb or 1.44 Mb)
3. Second computer (for example, computer of the friend) with established DOS
4. HEX editor (for example, Norton DiskEdit or Disk Editor, built - in in DOS Navigator)
All that it is necessary to you to make:
1. Power on the second computer and insert a diskette into the disk drive
2. Open a diskette in HEX editor
3. Change in sector 2 (boot-sector - sector 1) five bytes to the following:
4B 45 59 00 00
4. Keep changes. Now you have a key diskette!
5. Take a diskette from the disk drive
6. Insert a diskette into the disk drive notebook
7. Power on notebook
8. When the inquiry Password will appear: press a key "Enter"
9. When the inquiry Set Password again (Y/N) will appear press a key "Y" and on a key "Enter"
