Out of the blue this laptop wanted a password for the bios. What causes this problem, when no one hasnt requested to go into the bios.
After shorting out the bios reset "blobs" of solder, under memory, there is just the system trying to boot, with drives just starting up and the computer trying to boot, and no screen display. This would go in indefinitly if I let it.
No request for PW now

What does the BIOS show, since you must be able to access it now.

RE: What causes this problem,

This is a Known Issue with some Toshiba Systems.

If you return it to a Authorized Toshiba Service Agent they will clear the BIOS for you free. By the sounds of things you have destroyed the M'Board here if there is no Display of any sort which is possible if you shorted out the wrong Solder Points or did it wrong.

Now you have to talk to Toshiba about repairing this at your cost.

To answer your question, the first guess is that the sound drivers need to be downloaded and installed. Is yours a Toshiba A100?
