    We are not allowed to give that information. The password has been set for security purposes and we have no way of knowing if you are the rightful owner.

You could open up the R51 and remove the CMOS battery. This would reset the password.

Here is a link I found that allows one to hack the BIOS password:

Could be the keyboard has shorted out, maybe something was spilled on it? You can either get a cheap replacement keyboard from ebay (be sure to match the make/model & size) or you can just plug a usb keyboard in & use that. Once into windows go to device manager (right click My Computer on Desktop & click Properties, Hardware) & disable the IBM onboard keyboard.

I have a toshiba laptop that I have had cleaned by a friend. now it requires a pass word and mine does not work. howdo I set it back to manufacturer standards?

Ask your friend if he has put the password. Another option is try go to CMOS setup if you can & disable the option of password. But this seems unlikely. Open the laptop if you know how to open it. Locate for the reset switch, it can be found below keyboard. It can be a reset switch or just put a jumper across it for few seconds & your laptop will reset. If there is nothing like this, locate CMOS battery. Remove it for about half a minute & put it back.

Access built in owners manual.

If you just want to disable the wireless lan, you can go to the control panel, network connections, and right-click on the wireless connection icon. Click on "Disable". Re-enable it by going to the same place and click on "Enable".
In order for the "Access IBM" button to work you have to have the software installed. You can tell if it's installed by looking on the start menu under programs
