I just upgraded my BIOS and I'm trying to change the pwd in ME BIOS from admin to ???, but the new pwd is not accepted. What is the required syntax for the pwd.

Please check out Gael's blog at http://softwareblogs.intel.com/2007/11/08/strong-amt-me-passwords-and-other-shades-of-gray/on the guidelines for a strong ME password.
I bought a Tecra by Toshiba at Ebay and the seller never gave me the bios password. is there any way I can recover or obtain a new password?
The BIOS password is not the same as the AMT password. You will need to check with Toshiba.
