Don't ask how to hack password. (BIOS Passwords)

I flashed the BIOS on the above system using the BIOS update from the Toshiba site - for what I thought was a good reason. It appeared to have worked - that is until the system power-cycled, now the laptop is almost dead.

When I press the power on button, the Power-On light comes on for 4-5 seconds and then goes out. There is no activity what so ever other than this.

I have searched the net for the past 12 hours to see if there is a key sequence whereby I can force an upgrade (using an alternative and hopefully correct code), but no luck yet. I assume the BIOS does have this feature.

The BIOS is a Phoenix BIOS 4.0 Release 6 and should have BKT20 BIOS Version v.1.10 code in it.

Can anyone please here help me recover this laptop from this disasterous situation?
