TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

The easy answer here is get your brother to take the NB to a Authorized Toshiba Service Agent. After he proves ownership they will be able to fix this issue. It's even possible that this is one of those Toshiba's that sets it's own Password and Toshiba may clear it for free if it is.

Toshiba keeps this information to their Service Agents only so there is no other way to clear this short of changing the M'Board in the NB.
