I have a toshiba laptop satelite c655. My daughter changed the password and now I cannot login. When I power up the laptop it goes right to the password screen no splash screens at all. I tried f8, f2, f12, nothing works, I tried to hold the o key then the power button, the pc goes to the change bios settings press f12 or utility settings f2, it just goes back to the passwrd screen please help.

this is a very advanced solution but please DO NOT pursue this if you do not have any hardware background as it could cause damage to your machine and yourself 
  • remove the battery
  • remove the HDD

  • open-up the memory bay, remove bottom ram and keep the upper one

  • now search under the lower ram position and check for two little pins labeled B500, you have to manage to touch them together with a metal flat screw driver as you plug your ac adapter and start the machine

and now when your lap boots it will loose the pass, turn it off
remove the pc adapter and put back the ram and HDD.
enjoy!

MaxStart, thank you for your help, I did get rid of the password issue but when I try to start the computer I get this (Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 083)
Copyright 1997-2000 Intel Corporation
For Atheros PCIE Ethernet Controller v2.0.2.7(11/02/10)
Check Cable Connection!

No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key

I do not have a rescue disk and I am afraid that the hardrive is no good. do you have any other suggestions.

go into BIOS and see if it recognize it if it does just reorganize the boot sequence, otherwise it maybe damaged.
