Which password? If you're referring to a Windows password, then you have 3 choices:

1. Get the password from the person that set it. (ie: previous owner)
2. Download Ultimate BootCD and use the password tool in the data recovery options.
3. Reload the computer.

If you have a power-on password, then you have to remove all power and the CMOS battery. If you're referring to a hard drive password, you'll have to contact Toshiba support to see if there's any options for resetting / removing it... otherwise you'll have to replace the hard drive.

There are two tips for you.

1. Enter into safe mode, log in as default admin account, there is no password in it. If the default account password
has been changed, see next

2. Find Windows Password Key and download it( You can do in any computer not yours). Burn to a blank CD or USB, Insert
it to your computer then use the disk to reset your password to blank without knowing the current password.

In Vista (and Win 7 for that matter), the Admin account is disabled by default... so unless the user has enabled the Admin account, that option is not available.

As for the password reset tool, to my knowledge, that only works on the computer upon which it was created, doesn't it? After all, it would be a huge security risk if you could create one password reset disc or key and use it on any computer.

Where did you get the idea that a USB cord will help you with the password? It's like saying your TV is broken and you bought a flower pot.
