If you know the current password, use it to enter BIOS SETUP.
Then, type a "blank" ("space-bar") as the "new" password.
If you don't know the current password, you're stuck;
this is a "security" feature to prevent a stolen laptop from being used by the thief.

It cannot be removed using software.
To remove the password you will have to remove the CMOS battery located on the lower side of the motherboard.
To access the battery the computer must be disassembled completely.

there is no actual password. you need to remove the ram and short out two pins underneath the black plastic they look ike two E's connected like E3. use a flat blade screwe driver. do this while powered off!

This is the ONLY other way, save paying Toshiba and filling in proof of ownership forms.
The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
