✔ Best Answer
It'll be a BIOS option. Your manual is the best place to look for details of how to alter this setting. Obviously you need to know the password to disable it.

As a matter of interest, why do you need to update the BIOS - it's not a good idea unless there is some feature that you need. We'd hate to see you come back next week asking how to revive a bricked Toshiba.

Thanks iJack. Toshiba keeps popping up a window advising that two new bios versions are available and suggest that I upgrade to 'fix' known problems.

I know upgrading or toying around w/the bios is risky. I will give this serious thought. I am not experiencing any of the problems the upgrades are supposed to fix.

"I am not experiencing any of the problems the upgrades are supposed to fix"

In which case my advice would be to leave well alone.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

And, if you don't have any power-on passwords set, then they are already disabled.

Thanks Jennifer, that may be the case. I don't have to enter a password when the pc boots up. Maybe the passwords are disabled.
