    Well I lost out on this Laptop! Fought with Toshiba for 3 days... No one will help!! Only had this pc for 5 months!! Bought it in the states and I live in Canada!

    No this particular model is not posted on Toshiba's site about the bios password problem for my model... Only blank screen problem for my model I have..... A215-S5818.

    To fix the Bios even know it's still under warrenty,..... they want to ship me a box to sent this laptop somewhere past Toronto Ontario Canada and I have to pay for shipping and the repair!! So my $1250.00 laptop is now a door stop.

    Very unsatisfied with Toshiba's customer & tech support! I will nenver buy a Toshiba product again! Just bought a new HP laptop now.

My Toshiba A215-S5818 Shows up enter password


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.
