|i recently bought a laptop for $100. The reason? When you boot it up, it asks for the BIOS password. the previos owner does not know it and neither do i.|
I have tried making a bootable BIOS update disk, but it will not boot from the CD ROM
I have read that this is an issue with the Toshiba Satellites, and that they will fix it for free and that they are the only ones who can fix it.
I have seen something about shorting out circuts, but of course that is an absolute last resort.
I am in a way afraid to call support, as people have put into my head that it sounds as if the system was stolen.
OMG don't judge me!
