Unfortunately this is a known issue with a series of faulty bios firmware versions that came out with a batvh of toshiba models over the last few years, your best bet is to try updating the BIOS (downloading the latest BIOS revision for your model here: www.helpit.net.au/Downloads/Toshiba/410BL_rev1.70BIOS.exe) Run the update making sure to backup all your data BEFORE the update. this revision shuold remove the password bug from your system. Regards, David
there is a back door on some of there laptops the password woudl be toshiba if that doesnt work the EASIEST WAY IS TO DOWNLOAD THE BIOS FROM THERE WEBSITE AND FLASH THE BIOS to flash the bios you just download the bios from the website it will come with an installer and you can run it on your thumbdrive toshiba will explain how to flash the bios!
i will include a link to an article to bypass it with a neat trick if you have a parrellel port its towards the bottom of the page you just "short out the pins" and it resets it http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html is the link. worst case comes to worse you will have to open up and remove the cmos hope this works. leave me some feedback! i took a good time looking for a solution as i thought i had it but i was wrong (tested it on mine after reading this as i have a pro series as well
if you are using XP go to start>run (on the right hand side) and type in dxdiag, when the program opens click on the display tab and it will tell you the approx memory for your graphics card. If you are using vista then go to Start>accessories>run and follow the instructions above.
If you are totally determined that BIOS is the issue, You can use other computer to make a BIOS update disk which can be a floppy disk or CD-ROM. You need to download related BIOS update and write on the media(CD or Floppy) as bootable, here is the link that you can download latest version of BIOS update
