    phoenix utility setup? isn't that the bios? I'm pretty sure the password is Phoenix.

    if that doesn't work, you'll have to clear cmos (open up your laptop and use the jumper on the mainboard to erase the bios settings)

    did you set a BIOS password? have you just tried hitting enter, if not try typing in "phoenix"

    i think that is their default password

    To Clear CMOS
    1)Remove Laptop Battery and power cord.
    2)Take off Memory Cover(underneath - square cover, Sits
    in middle of laptop 1 retaining screw
    3)Using two thumbs spread spring clips to outside and
    pull out RAM memory.
    4)Remove clear vinyl label opposite RAM memory slots in
    upper left corner( laptop battery slot is on right, DVD
    drive is facing away from you)
    5)Using a magnifying glass (unless you have perfect
    vision)in the upper left corner you will see JOPEN1 with
    a white silkscreen square next to it . Inside the square
    you will see what looks like the letter T over a U(sometimes it may be 2 ts side by side over 2 us side by side).
    Using a metal paper clip short the U to the Silver 1/4"
    post connecting the motherboard to the laptop case(this
    is your ground, it is located above what looks like a
    silkscreen outline of a chip)hold for 25 -30 seconds.
    6) Place back your RAM memory, put in the laptop battery
    and test start laptop. you should see a selection of F1
    or F2 for setup. Using the F2 gets you into the Bios
    menu where you reset the time and date. Now
    hit F10 key ,yes to save and your done!
    Note: if your having trouble your most likely grounding
    the ground(that blob of solder about 1/8"dia on both
    ends of the "silkscreen chip outline"
    Once you get all of this done, go to Toshiba support and download the most recent BIOS update. Without the update it could happen again.
