SOURCE: reset bios password
it's the 'clear cmos' jumper you need to move on the motherboard. If you move that over one pin for a moment, then back, then boot up, your p/word will be cleared.

SOURCE: Hdd password frozen on laptop
if you download the sata drivers from the toshiba website for your specific laptop and then extract them and get nlite ( www.nliteos.com and slipstream the drivers into the xp disc you can then re install xp and it should allow you to boot.
As for the hard drive frozen password that should be in the bios on the hard drive that you set it for so it should remember it
if not you may have to contact toshiba and they should have a back door password that they can produce once you give them the asset tag ( serial number of the laptop ) and once you enter that it should resolve the hard drive frozen issue.
Had a hard drive frozen at a school once and had to call dell ( as it was a dell laptop obviously ) and gave them the serial number and they created a back door password for me - jobs a good one :D

The only thing I can come up with is to clear the bios by shorting the mainboard at the "Bios Clear" point.
Other than that have a loo at this website: http://rahulhackingarticles.wetpaint.com/page/Clear+BIOS+Password,+All+tricks+!
