old post answered late by terry
first off, is that code, what I means.
the poster forgot to say they were doing RECOVERY.
and that is what fails. (or bought the PC used just now and last owner put it in to recovery stuck there,.... no history stated.
it fails for 2 reasons, (or more)
1: someone replaced the hdd before, killing recovery dead.
a new HDD/SSD means OS gone and recovery partition too.
2: upgraded the OS with out using Toshiba media.

if the HDD is bad now, there will be no 0 key recovery possible
the maker does not sell recovery media on any old PC.
most OEM only do this for 1st 3 years
no OS stated by you at all.

now to fix a computer with not money
there is only 2 answers,
steal one, (lol)
or if HDD passes all HDD tests, load feel Linux.
I do not find anything free, every day for 70 years,
not yet,

brett gabs 1year old post.\
11 year old PC says maker,. full model number not stated.
I bet the PC is sold/ scrapped or fixed after 1 year?
but self shut down top cause are.:

1: the huge battery is shorted, take it out leave it out.
2: the power pack is dead, AC pack the PC must run on the AC pack or the (big battery out) may be dead, test it. ask.
3; overheated is it on a blanket? or bed, or desk are all vents cleaned and fan clean and funs runs fast while running too hot
we do simple heat tests (ask how,costs nothing) ask how to test
guessing will fail, if we guess 13 times. (or more if motherboard modules short)
came with VISTA, still VISTA?
there are more way's here are a bunch. .
lucky 13 ways
computers are complex for sure the windows, side.

PCs do not run for 11 years not serviced,
clean every year is best. see why here, see how to do it.
see the mess.

the inverters fail 1%
your question really is impossible. (how to get to)
CCFL., NO photos of you showing panel rear and that STICKER.
then you ask how to get the LCD out;. will good luck there see my last post on that topic

why even post until you open the back panel 100%
remove the LCD panel
and see what is there, most PC have 3 screen optons
and 3 makers of screens, so ONLY you opening it
and see what screen actually is there, will work
1: remove screen.
2: see Toshiba sticker and P/N. and makers name and number too. (Samsung and LG are 2 top makers))
3: then lock for the CCLF, the big clue is the Invereter cable goes to the CCFL array, 1 tube or 3 tubes on some.
if you look at the screen and CCFL entry point
you then (physical world is like this) we see
3 possible ways in.
1: easy it has a slide out tray?
2: is a huge glue/plastic sandwich, impossible.
3: has these silly metal bend tabs that snap off rendering my work useless, or I get invented with hot glue gun and rip it apart and find the tubes.
spend $30 to $50 or tubes (sellers are scaplers)
and make this work.

as you can see I have done this.
what is inside your PC nobody knows, due to the facts stated above. (it's optional when new/built)

I would suggest a factory restore to fix the problem. If you have data on the computer that needs saving then do this first, if unable to do this then take to a computer shop to have it done for you.

Toshiba... | Answered on Nov 14, 2018

Remove the battery and see if it starts up fine, if not then try the following:

1. Unplug your charger cord.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Press and hold the "Power" button for 30 seconds or longer
4. Now plug back in the power/charger cord.
5. Now put the battery back in.
6. See if it starts up now, laptops often get stuck in hibernate mode.

13 year old PC,
if you lost the BIOS admin password, that can be hard to reset but 13 year old PC are the most easy
every year it gets harder.
did you google this first.
the maker of the PC has no real form at all.
so that is why you are here, because you can't ask the maker, but in all cases of all makers of PCs all there forums are not allowed to discuss this topic (hacking passwords)
as of march 2018 this topic is illegall(sic)
but we at fixya can tell you that you can google and read, or go to youtube, and see if someone has hack for this, did you?

the OEM page is this only

the hacking is here. I do not promote hacking but there is no other choices but and OEM fix or hacking or new MOBO.
1 second search here shows. (youtube has many)

then video is not very good, but shows locates at end clearly see the J1, jack it seen 2 squiggly line trances there of copper, jump the squiggly.4153bb5a-8149-42b0-81c6-0baa48a1a81a.jpg

Toshiba... | Answered on Oct 29, 2018

zero history
it ran for 12 long years, 2006 to 2018 and died JUST today?
or found it for $10 at a garage sale, and is worth really $0, dead.
history matters, ?
sounds to me that IS BIOS ADMIN PASSWORD lost
is it? did you use this feature an forget it?
do tell that. and answers can get better.

I see you mobo sold and has soldered down coin cell, not easy to fix that. ( I can )
but not easy.
bottom right side of mobo, blue color.

I unsolder that battery , and all other batteries out and AC pack out.
and wait 1hour , then put it back (test it for proper voltage) and then see if PW is cleared
older PCs can clear PW this way.
newer not.
