There is 2 ways to do this, firstly you can create a floppy disk with the updated bios flash file on ( not recommended to a novice ) or reinstall XP and updated the bios by downloading it from the manufacturers website and installing it that way. After that you can install Vista.

My computer does not connect to wifi and only show
Do you have a wifi card in the computer? It is a hardware part that you need so that the computer can connect to the wifi. If you have that but can't find it in the operating system. I suggest that you either install or update the driver for it.
You can use RadarSync
to scan your computer for the available updates of your wifi driver. Make sure that you connect to the internet first using your ethernet so that it will detect the available driver updates somewhere in the databases of the manufacturer.

Toshiba satellite pro u400-130 bios password
The CMOS is, in basic terms, the part of the motherboard
that stores the BIOS settings. To remove the BIOS password from your
Toshiba laptop, your best option is to forcibly clear the CMOS.
To clear the CMOS, you must remove the battery from your laptop and
leave it out for at least 30 minutes to an hour. The way to remove the
battery from your Toshiba will largely depend on the model. A common way
to remove the battery--particularly with newer models--is to release
the battery lock on the bottom of the laptop, while sliding the
accompanying tab over to the side. This will pop the battery out from
its tray so that you can then pull it out all of the way out.
Before you remove the battery, turn off the laptop and remove the AC
adapter. Otherwise, you could end up harming yourself or the laptop
components. You must also ground yourself to prevent damaging the laptop
with static electricity.
After about a half an hour or more, return the battery back to its tray and lock it into place. Power on the laptop. The computer, ideally, should no longer ask you for a BIOS password.
It's important to keep in mind that resetting the CMOS means that all
of your BIOS settings will be reset to factory default. Also, sometimes
you may need to leave out the battery for much longer than an hour to
reset the password.
If resetting the CMOS doesn't work, then your next bet is to
try using a backdoor password. A backdoor password is basically a
password that manufacturers include with the BIOS so that technicians
can access the computers
that people send in for repair. An example of a Toshiba backdoor
password is, unsurprisingly, "Toshiba." When the BIOS prompts you to
enter a password, entering "Toshiba" may allow you to access your PC and
clear the old BIOS password. Another option is to hold the left "Shift"
key down while booting.
