Remove the bios battery from the mainboard for about 45 seconds. if this is a password set in the bios it will reset it to blank. This will require unplugging the computer and removing the case or side of case. the battery will be easy to spot if not covered by something else, it looks like a large watch battery and just has a little clip holding it in place..

I own a Toshiba Satellite laptop (A135-S4427) running Windows Vista. The laptop has worked well for over one year, but has recently shut off without prompting. When I attempt to restart, it will either reboot, get to the desktop, and then shut down again; or will not start up at all and the power light will blink a series of colors (blue, pink, then amber). I've removed the battery and tried to run the laptop off the power cable alone, but nothing changes from above. I've reseated the RAM. Again
