Toshiba / automatic bios password on new toshiba laptop

United Kingdom

Had a brand Toshiba A300-1BZ new laptop purchased in UK, brought it to Nigeria. It was never removed from package. Brought it out this month, set it up. After all the initial setup, I shut it down. On the next restart, it came up with a BIOS password.

The Toshiba representative continued to STATE that there is no known BIOS password issue with that model and that the laptop is out of warranty.

You know what I think? Avoid Toshiba laptops because no one knows which can come up with a BIOS password - even Toshiba themselves don't know.

Asking me for a $300+ motherboard replacement for a brand new laptop of 600 pounds sterling.
