Question about Toshiba Satellite 2400-S251 Notebook
I want to rescue this beauty but I have one problem: after entering Bios Password Windows XP starts immediately, no POST no nothing. I have tried the method that theoretically works: "Esc" key while Toshibe logo shows up and then "F1" when prompted, by laptots restarts when I hit F1. Also I cannot get to start from CD. I've read that you can boot brom cd while you press "C" but it doesn't work. Can it be a CMOS problem? Someone can help me? Tx and sorry for my bad english.
F2 will get you into the bios to change the boot order but I doubt that is the issue as XP starts so the bios is OK..

No manufacturers password that I have ever heard of but you can remove your keyboard and disconnect the mother board (BIOS) battery. Leave it disconnected for a few minutes. When reconnected the password should be gone. A few laptops actually have a jumper to do this.

3. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.

5. Press the spacebar, enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The Password field will change to NOT REGISTERED.
F2 Key BIOS Password removing procedure
1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key. The unit will display the "Password = " prompt.
2. Enter the correct password, press the Enter key. (You may need to press the F2 key after you hit the enter key.)
3. The BIOS setup program will appear.
4. Using the arrow keys, move to the Security tab, and to Set User Password.
5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Enter the current password at the Old Password prompt, and press Enter. At the New Password prompt, press Enter (without typing anything into the password field). At the Confirm Password prompt, press Enter again (without typing anything into the password field). The password should now be removed.
6. Press F10 to save and exit from the BIOS Setup program.
