Question

Bios password wanted? Toshiba Satellite Radius P25W-C2300-4K

In need of help. I purchased this laptop refurbished on eBay a few months ago. After some updates a couple days ago, I'm getting a gray keypad on my screen asking me for a password. I've watched videos, and looked for answers but have found nothing. Could it be a bios password that it's asking me? All the videos I've watched have a blue rectangle box asking for a password, but I get a gray keypad box. I've pressed the Esc, F1, F2, etc buttons and still nothing. I also tried doing a bios/cmos reset by opening the laptop up and taking out the battery. I didn't however find the cmos content. Please any help would be appreciated.

If this is just after power up

And before Windows boots, it's a BIOS password. I read you did the research so it's well known that Toshiba and others have designed this to slow down theft. Gone are the days of a reset as you found out.

Toshiba service checks the registered owner and then tells how or arranges for service.

After power, and before Windows

Thanks for your help. I'll have to arrange something with Toshiba then since there's no way around it.
