    I have a similar problem. I have a prompt as soon as I turn on the laptop that says. "HDD Password = " I can't boot to A drive, CD-ROM, Network or anything. Disconnecting the CMOS battery didn't work. Does anyone know a way I can format this hard drive without having to remove it from the native unit?

    I forgot BIOS Password

Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for Bios Password or Bios Password Reset.
    I searched and Toshiba did not have any manuals or drivers for this model. Must be really old.
    Anyway try the link below for removing the bios password.
    http://www.ehow.com/how_6795884_reset-toshiba-tecra-bios-password.html
    You could try removing the cmos battery.

    You will have to remove the power cord, remove the batteryand remove the CMOS Battery that is located on the motherboard. On mostcomputers you will have to take the laptop apart to get to the cmosbattery. On some systems it looks like a silver nickel that you will needa small flat head screw driver to pop it out. On other systems it will beinside a vinyl covering and has a cable that plugs into the motherboard. Once you remove the CMOS Battery, let it sit for an hour or two then put itback in and put the laptop back together. Boot the machine and you'llprobably have to go into the Bios or System Setup because the system will haveforgotten the date, time and password.

    Remove toshiba password from bios satellite 3000-x4


    The Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) password is not set by default on Toshiba laptops. When set, the BIOS password must be entered every time you turn on your Toshiba or wake your system from Standby mode. If you forget the password, you cannot boot your system. Prevent having to enter a password or the results of forgetting the password by removing the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop. Other types of passwords can be set, such as a Windows password, to prevent unauthorized access to your machine.

    1. Turn off your Toshiba laptop.

    2. Wait 30 seconds and turn your laptop back on.

    3. Press "F2" repeatedly as soon your Toshiba laptop begins booting until the BIOS menu screen appears.

    4. Enter your existing BIOS password and press "Enter."

    5. Press "F2" again to enter the BIOS, if prompted.

    6. Use your arrow keys to select the "Security" tab in the BIOS menu.

    7. Use the arrow keys to select "Set User Password."

    8. Press either "F5" or "F6," depending on your Toshiba laptop model, to open the Password section.

    9. Enter the current password into the "Old Password" prompt and press "Enter."

    10. Press "Enter" when the "New Password" prompt appears. Do not enter any text in this box.

    11. Press "Enter" again to confirm the new password.

    12. Press "F10" to save your changes and exit.

    I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

    How to remove bios password of L505 S5984 model laptop


    The basic input/output system (BIOS) is essential computer motherboard firmware. Using the BIOS menu, you can configure many system settings--for instance, the computer boot sequence--and also configure hardware, such as optical (CD/DVD) drives or a monitor. An optional password protects BIOS from unauthorized access. However, you may need to remove the BIOS password to facilitate the configuration of your system. The Toshiba laptop model Satellite Pro T1000 allows you to change BIOS settings and remove the password with a special Windows hardware setup program. 1. Click "All Programs" from the Windows start menu.
    2. Open the folder "TOSHIBA" and click on "Utilities."
    3. Click on "HWSetup" to start the Toshiba Hardware BIOS utility.
    4. Click on the tab "Password" in the HWSetup window.
    5. Select the radio button "Not Registered" in the field "Password."
    6. Click the "Apply" button to to remove the password and save that change in the laptop BIOS.
