Question about Computers & Internet
That is the bios password, in order to bypass that you would need to know the password, either ask your friend for the password, or you would need to remove the bios battery inside the laptop wait 10 seconds and place it back and turn on the laptop to reset the bios.

I have a Satellite A135-S2356 that had the same problem. I tried the solution from PCTServices above and it worked great.
"Power unit off. Disconnect AC power. Remove battery. Remove the memory cover screw, memory cover and the memory modules. Peel back mylar from JOPEN1 solder pad. Short JOPEN1 solder pads for 30 seconds. Replace mylar. Replace memory modules. Replace battery. Power up unit. If all is well, replace memory cover and screw."
Just short the two little solder pads and it worked great! I thought I would have to send it back to the manufacture but I am back in buisness. Thanks for the help.

what you need to do is pull both the laptop battery as well as the cmos battery. in some instances, the battery can be pulled, but on other models, i have seen the battery as an actual physical part on the motherboard or somewhere where it is not easily accessible, in which case you need to clear the cmos by using a jumper on the motherboard, since it is a laptop, they are all different. you may need to see if you can locate a copy of the motherboards schematics and go from there.

Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if
you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

The problem can be due to incorrect power on password prompt. This problem is noticed with some older BIOS versions. The system is looking for a non-existing power-on password.
The only solution for this is to send the system back to Toshiba. They will repair this problem free of cost.
