Accidental BIOS password?
Hey guys, I'm sorry to be asking this, but I couldn't find any other solutions by googling. Somehow my father, on his Toshiba Satellite a505, set a BIOS password on accident. Even though he's an IT professional he doesn't really know anything about personal computing. I don't know how he would have known to set this BIOS password in the first place. Apparently he was on website last night, something started "acting up" so he shut the computer down. (They can't tell me what this "acting up" is). He tried to get back on the computer, and this BIOS password screen came up. Or at least, I think it's a BIOS screen. It's a black, blank screen with a blue "enter password" box. I can't access the boot menu or setup utility before this screen appears.
Unfortunately, I know just enough about computers to fix some basic stuff. This has exceeded my knowledge base.
I would appreciate any help anyone has to offer. Thank you!
