    Hi,

    I'm the happy owner of a R700, at least until now.
    This morning, I'd try to protect my laptop with a boot password.
    So i set up a supervisor password and restarted my computer.
    It has two downsides :
    First of all, there is no boot password required and secondly if I push the F2 key at the boot sequece, the comuter imediately restart...

    How can i enter the BIOS again and how to set up a boot password ?
    And, if it's possible, how to set up a fingerprint password at boot time ?

    Thank you very much,
    Sébastien

    Hi

    Try to press ESC and then F1 in order to access the BIOS.
    There you can change or delete the User and Supervisor password.

    Check the Toshiba SetupHW Utility.
    This should be preinstalled on your notebook.
    As far as I know you can delete and change the Supervisor and user password usign the Toshiba Password Utility as well.

    User password:
    Start -> All Programs -> Toshiba -> Utilities -> Password Utility

    To change Supervisor Password you will need to use the TOSPU.exe
    This can be find in C:\Program Files\Toshiba\Password Utility\TOSPU.exe

    This utility lets you set, delete or change supervisor password and specify restrictions for general users.

    Please also check the user manual page 138!!!
