Toshiba 2515CDS Boot Password

Some Toshibas respond to holding down the shift key while booting.

Also try these two sites. One suggests backdoors to try: http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000451.htm

And the other has passwords and offers a service that is reasonably priced: http://www.pwcrack.com/BIOS/bios.html

If these don't get you through the problem contact me at apf2@apf2.com, I think I have some more resources filed away.

Good Luck,
Al Franco, II

Ultimate answer may not be easy to perform.
Remove the internal backup battery which stores BIOS settings etc.
Sometimes disconnecting this for 1 hour or so will reset the system settings and allow you entry...
