Help . Laptop wont accept start up password

desert_road, May 4, 4:48am
Just got back from a month overseas, now my Toshiba Satellite pro wont accept my password.

either you are using the wrong password or someone has changed it on you

Very odd . neither.

Correct password used, computer remained under the bed unused the whole time.

When clicking the reset option it asks for a floppy disk or flash drive. We don't own either one of those?

nothing odd here - the password is either correct or not.

if you get stuck you can reset it

odd. No one has been here at home.

anyway, it says ' no drive' ?

cheers king

no drive sounds more like a hardware issue. some more details or context of the 'no drive' would help

desert_road, May 4, 5:07am
checking.

appreciate the help.

underneath the box where to enter password it offers 'Reset password'
When clicking this option, a box comes up headed No Drive and explains:
The feature requires removable media, such as a floppy disk or USB flash drive, please insert either.

i see - not hardware then, just looking for the password reset disk.
