An HDD/SSD password is located on the HDD itself and cannot be accessed to change it like Operating system passwords can be.
It is at sector level and only manufacturer can advise.May be easier (and cheaper) to replace the HDD.

I'm afraid you may have purchased a stolen laptop. It is impossible to remove a HD/SSD drive password, there are no backdoor passwords and if the Toshiba has a Power on Password then this laptop cannot boot up.
If the HD/SSD is password locked then remove the existing drive, replace it with a new HD or SSD, install Windows plus the Toshiba device drivers and programs to get a working laptop.

Step 1Turn on your laptop. Press the "F2" key when the first loading screen appears. This will load the BIOS. You'll only have a second or two to press this key before Windows begins to boot. If you're not fast enough and the Windows screen comes up, simply restart and try again.
Step 2Use the right-arrow key to highlight the "Security" tab. This is the third tab from the right.
Step 3Press the down-arrow to enter the Security Settings menu. Scroll down to "User Password," listed beneath the "HDD/SSD Password Select." This will open a pop-up window with three text fields.
Step 4Type your current password into the "Current Password" field. Press "Enter." Type your new password into the "New Password" field and press "Enter." Type the same password again into the "Confirm New Password" field and press "Enter." The "Password" window will close.
Step 5Press the "F10" key to save your new settings and exit the BIOS. Your laptop will now boot normally.
Tips & WarningsHDD password can be changed as many times as necessary. However, once you enable password protection, you can never delete it.

Theexperiencethat I forgot windows password happened to me a few weeks ago. My friendAcheson who is an IT engineer recommended me to take use of Windows PasswordReset, which is very smart and just take me a shorttime to reset a newly password.
I think this windows password reset tool can help you too.
