I have a customers Toshiba laptop which recently and randomly started to require a password in order to boot from any medium or access the BIOS. is there anyway that i can either bypass this or reset the BIOS password by resetting the CMOS or BIOS it's self. Any help would be much appreciated as the customer is desperate to get his laptop back up and running.

Thanks in advance

okay that's fine. looks like i may need to phone Toshiba and fine out. apparently this is a common problem with this series of laptops. The BIOS will just randomly require a password to go into the BIOS or boot from any device. it's a known problem.

Try resetting the CMOS, or taking out the battery for a good 5 minutes.
