Hi, I am trying to set my Toshiba Satellite


Just before the laptop boots, a Toshiba screen opens inviting F2 or F12. This will let you into the BIOS menu if you press F2 at that time. When you are there, find Default Settings in the menu and press F10 and enter.
That is now set to default and you can start the restore process.
Hope that helps.

I bought this toshiba satellite m20 in an auction. its asking for an administrator password. HOw can i remove the password?


Is the BIOS asking for a password or is Windows asking for a password? If it's the BIOS then you might never get the password off. Seldom can you remove the password from a laptop's BIOS without already knowing the password. If it's Windows that's asking for the password, then try reinstalling your operating system. This will get rid of the password and anything else that may be lurking around in the computer from the previous owner.

You have a real old clunker. Contact Toshiba, you might be lucky, but don't hold your breath.
You maybe able to locate MS Quick Basic (use Google search) or get a copy of Visual Basic, install the Basic program and convert your old Basic programs.

How do i open the bios?


When you start you computer, you'll need to fit a key F1-F12 depending on your motherboard's model and you can access the bios. This F1-F12 number is usually displayed quickly before the motherboard boots off of the boot device, and it can likely be found in a reference manual

Toshiba tecra 730 xcdt


To open the BIOS configuration utility
Power Up the laptop while pressing the F2 key.
If F2 does not work, try again with ESC, or F10
The manual for this archived product does not exist on the support site. Try Toshiba Russia Support. Choose archives maybe you will find it.
