I had to re-install my Laptop to out of the Box condition. During that time, I was asked to key in a password, I did and also somewhere along the line, it requested a password for my Hard Drive which I had installed new, it is a solid state drive. It is win 7 and a Toshiba Satellite A665 laptop. Have tried and no luck so far. Since I am only one on LT, see no need for PW's and it is annoying.
