It is considered bad manners and SHOUTING to type in caps on forums. You may find it difficult to get help with passwords on this or any other forum due to the difficulty in proving ownership of laptops. You may need to contact Toshiba in this regard.

Questions such as this are asked just about every day on this forum and the answer is always the same. Contact the manufacturer and be prepared to prove you are the original owner.

Generally manufacturers will only help the original owner of a laptop with password problems. The reason being that many laptops sold on eBay and elsewhere are actually stolen. Theft of laptops is a major problem. If it became known that a manufacturer was helping with passwords on possibly stolen laptops it would turn away many potential buyers. For many laptop owners it is of critical importance that the data in their computers not fall into the wrong hands. A BIOS password is one way of preventing this.

Essentially you will need to contact the original owner (through ebay) and get the information from him/her.
