I have a Toshiba notebook 205 that is telling me " Please enter built-in HDD/SSD user password." What do I do?

System Configuration: Windows / Chrome 81.0.4044.138

Hello, after a previous post, this was the best answer that worked for them:

Try resetting your BIOS. Follow the below instructions.
  • Turn off your PC and remove the power chord --> Open the cabinet --> Remove the CMOS battery for 15-30 minutes and then put it back properly.
  • Now plug the power cord back in and switch ON your PC.
  • If the problem still exists try jumper setting to reset your BIOS.
  • Click on the below link and follow the instructions in "Hardware Reset".
