Answers :

There is a known issue on this model and Toshiba knows about it. A password can be automatically be set by the computer and will need to be removed and have the BIOS updated so it won't happen again by an "authorized service provider." You can locate your closest Toshiba ASP at support.toshiba.com This is a known issue and Toshiba knows about it. You should get this covered at no charge if you take it into an ASP, make sure to verify this with the ASP and take it somewhere else if they tell you it will cost you anything. Toshiba will cover this till December 31st 2010.
