Question about Computers & Internet
Things to check:
Does your AC adapter output at the correct voltage? If no, get a new one.
Does your DC socket feel loose in anyway once the AC adapter is connected? If yes, you may need to repair/replace it.
If you are sure both of these things are ok, could you advise do you get any life from the laptop at all? Any lights? Even a charging indication light?

The only solution is to take the computer to a Toshiba Authorized Service Center to have the password reset. If you have registered ownership of the computer with Toshiba they will be able to help you for a fee.
Hope it helps.

SOURCE: how to unlock bios of
1. look on the mother board for a small round battery about the size of a nickle, remove it, start pc, after start up shut down, replace battery, start up again... or remove battery, let sit for about 30min, replace battery start pc.
2. look for a small red or yellow toggle switch or button on the mother board, (should say "reset bios") push button, restart pc.
i assume this is a lap top so there will be some disassembly of the unit, not to extreme though, usualy the battery and the switch/button are next to one another and located toward the front of the mother board, and if in lap tops the battery or batteries are in a plastic covering wired to the mother board with a small connector, just unplug connector if you cant find the reset button.
hope that helps

You are fortunate as it appears that your DC Jack plugs into the motherboard via a harness, so there should be no soldering required. Clicking this link will take you to a nice step by step with detailed pictures on removing the motherboard on a Portege M400: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Portege-M400/take-apart-tablet-pc-1.htm, it should be close enough to your M500 to get the gist of the procedure you will execute. I would follow the dis-assembly until you can access the DC Jack, replace it, and reverse the procedure at that point to reassemble your Portege. At the bottom of each page is a link to the next page up to the removal of the mother board, but you won't be going that far.
Take a look at the step by step and the photos to see if you think it will help with your repair and please let us know what you think?

Usually one of the following keys right when boot screen is viewed will get you into bios on most computers.
Esc, F2, F10, Del, or F12 which should be the case with the Portege.
