Hold down the <ESC> key as the computer starts up. It should beep and display a message "Check system. Press <F1>.

Press <F1> and the System Setup information is displayed.

try this...
start your pc
restart in dos
type cd "c:\dos\tsetup"
if you get an error..type
"cd dos"
press the Enter key
type "tsetup.exe"
press Enter
If you get another error
type "tsetup"
press Enter
Make your appropriate changes
thenpress the "End" key
do not prees the "Esc" (it will cause an exit without saving the changes)

If you still cannot access the bios..
I had a friend who had an issue with a Toshiba Satelite PRO 445CDX. He could not get past the bios. So I found this info on the web... it works.

Also, the root cause was not bad bios, or and accidently changed password, it was the keyboard. I hope this is not your problem.

The one and only way to bypass the Power On BIOS password
of a Toshiba Notebook. This method works on all models.

This is what you need:

1. Your notebook
2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb)
3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC)
4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks)

This is what you have to do:

1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor
2. Put the disk in drive A:
3. Change the first five bytes of sector 1 (boot sector is sector 0) to: 4B 45 59 00 00
4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK
5. Remove the disk from driveA:
6. Put the disk in the notebook drive
7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button)
8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password.
