I can't get past BIOS setup; I am running Win 8, and haven't had any problems until one day the computer told me I needed a password to gain access! I was working at my desktop in the office, with the Toshiba sitting inches away when this happened. I have never put a password on this, or any of my other computers. Someone mentioned that I had to "Flash the BIOS" is this true? I've never done that before, and am concerned that I might do irreprable harm to my files, documents, and pictures. PLEASE ADVISE.,
No one here is gonna help you bypass a password on anything, for any reason. No way to verify it is yours to begin with. Either contact Toshiba and prove ownership, ask the person who owns it what their password is, or remember your password. Those are your 3 options.
