    I'm just coming back up after the loss of 2 other qosmio laptops (~2k$ each)

    this time I'd like to make sure my laptop is not sellable on ebay

    As the title states I own a toshiba qosmio x505-q898 with the newest bios update; I've been out of the game for quite a while and all the tools I've tryed say they wont work on x64.....


    Basicly I want to change the splash image to a image containing "This laptop would never be sold, if found etc"
    Attached is the image I need to change it to

    any help would be greatly appreciated and I may be willing to compensate via paypal

    I would advise you to remove that attachment. There's lots of personal info...

    I did try to open your BIOS with Phoenix BIOS Editor but I got a "PSI analysis fail" error. What you could try doing is reflash your BIOS and make the backup. Then post the backup on a file share website like sendspace.com and maybe the backup can be modified.
