    thanks for trying but none of the link ideas worked I finally called toshiba and found out that this is a very common problem so common that they fix it for free at any authorized dealer. since there are none near me they are paying for me to ship it back to the company and they will reset it and send it back to me. I was surprised considering the thing is almost two years old and out of warranty but hey what ever works to get it going again.

When pc boots up, it asks for only password

It would appear that someone got into the BIOS and set a supervisor password, and this will keep you from logging on.
Possibly a way to fix this is to remove the CMOS battery from the machine to clear the CMOS. In a laptop, it can be difficult to find this battery. In the best of worlds, you can remove the battery and look up into the case to see if the battery is visible. Otherwise, you'll have to open the case to find it.

I have a satellite A105 and When i turn it on it asks for password but I don't have the password. So how to I get past this to be able to use it again?

just remove the cmos battery

the bios stores the password and the cmos battery provides it power to store it

if you remove cmos battery the bios reverts to factory settings and the password is removed

cmos battery is different than the laptop backup battery

cmos battery is found inside the laptop case on the motherboard, you will have to open the laptop to remove the cmos battery

Cmos setup screen

If you're trying to get to the bios set up, when the initial Toshiba screen comes up it will tell you what to press for the set up towards the bottom of the screen.
