SOURCE: lost bios passwrd
Toshiba has a list of models in which the computer randomly changes the BIOS password, prohibiting entry. You need to call them at 800) 457-7777 to see if your model is on the list. If it is, you have an older version of BIOS. They will have you take it to your nearest authorized service center and upgrade the BIOS for you and then you will never have that problem again.
