history matters, ?

I see you mobo sold and has soldered down coin cell, not easy to fix that. ( I can )
but not easy.
bottom right side of mobo, blue color.

I unsolder that battery , and all other batteries out and AC pack out.

older PCs can clear PW this way.
newer not.

Here are solutions:
  • Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
  • Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers for firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you do get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates. Check it here: http://support.toshiba.com/support/home

depends on what password you/anyone have set. if you must reset the password you need to unplug the little battery that you may find underneath or under your keyboard.

It is more on a hardware issue. The battery needs to be drained. Once on, let the battery drain and re charge it for 4 hours.

One of your friends might have set this up... I've done it before. You either got a crazy virus or somebody played a joke on you. Probably the latter.

This sounds like a display issue. Have you tried hooking the laptop up to an external monitor?
