Hi,
We DON'T have to answer your question. We do it because we like to help. If you get a password prompt on boot, then you cannot do anything about it. You have to take it to a Toshiba Certified repair center to have the password removed, or changed.
An anti-theft security feature would not be much of a theft-deterrent if it can be thwarted by a simple screwdriver and the removal of the CMOS battery.

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

To reset the compaq 2530p bios password


I'm not 100% sure this will work but you might have to take apart the laptop to reSEAT the bios battery. Unplug it from the motherboard then plug it back in. Usually once those pre-windows passwords are locked in they're locked in for good.

To unlock your BIOS you have to remove your BIOS battery for few minutes which is onboard, then replace the BIOS battery again on the motherboard will not only reset the BIOS password to default but will put all the BIOS settings to default. For which you will have to reconfigure your BIOS settings, but remember any wrong setting in the BIOS may damage your laptop.

Sounds like the hard drive was locked, or the BIOS was locked. If the hard drive was locked, you must replace the hard drive. if the BIOS was locked you willl need to reset the bios. You can likely remove the CMOS battery to reset the bios.

If he had changed the default code, then your only option is to deal with the Bios Battery. Locate the Bios Battery on the motherboard after opening the case (cabinet) apart, remove it and leave it outside for few minutes. Again reinsert it and reboot your machine. Good luck.
