Have a look at this link and you will see what you have to do, I think whoever you lent the computer to must know the password. A service centre is the only other option

The only real way to reset a bios password is to pull the cmos battery and let it discharge the saved password while the batter on the laptop is out and unplugged. You would have to take apart your laptop. Out of curiosity why did you need a bios password?

Toshiba... | Answered on Mar 17, 2011


To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

Because it is under warranty the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD.

Hello
There could be a couple things wrong.
1 ram sticks or a stick is not seated properly.Double check.
2 motherboard can not handle 2 gb of ram.Remove 1 and then try it.
3 ram is the wrong type.or 1 stick is bad.Try one at a time and verify ram is correct type.

Here is a link for your model with specs

I dont think 2 gb is supported on for your motherboard.

You have hardware failure, probably the hard drive.
Test the hard drive with a diagnostic utility downloaded from the drive manufacturer's website or use Seagate's SeaTools For DOS. You will create a bootable CD with the file you download. You will need third-party burning software to do this such as Roxio or Nero. Burn as an image, not as data.

The download links are below:

http://seagate.custkb.com/seagate/crm/selfservice/search.jsp?DocId=201271 (how-to)

Boot with the CD you made and do a thorough test of the hard drive. If it fails any physical tests, replace it.

sounds like all that work and something was not plugged in correctly.

There should be a switch on the keyboard to enable the wireless i think it is F4 it should have a big "i" icon on it, if it is not there check the other F-keys, or the front under the touchpad area or on the sides you should find a switch somwhere. post back and tell me if you find one .thanks

If you can't find the DVD ROM, try to click the start button, then click My Computer. Then try to find if the opticcal drive / DVD drive exist on it. If it is not, try other options..

You may uninstall it from the device manager by clicking Start > right click My Computer > then click Properties > then click Hardware > then click Device Manager. Under DVD/CD ROM drives, right click the device and Uninstall. Then restart the pc and go back to device manager. Then click Scan for hardware changes let it auto install the drivers. Check if it works....

You can remove it but for that you have remove the cover and if the screws are too tight then do not force because if some thing broke on the board then the laptop will be dead and the repairing cost will be very high.
