I forgot my user password and have the disk to reset password but need to boot from disk and dont know how


You have to configure your BIOS settings for that. Restart your computer and hold down a special key on your keyboard it's usally f1, f2, del or the esc key. Then you will see the BIOS settings. Now try to find the settings for Boot order and put the disk drive as the first choice.

I gave a password has my bios and i forgot it


The password exists to protect you, should a thief be in possession of your computer. Find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you are the original owner, and contact the manufacturer's "technical support" department.

Download (Keydisk) http://www.cgsecurity.org/keydisk.exe will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.

Can be reset using the Key Disk.exe utility, to do this you need a 1.44Mb floppy disk. Format the disk using Windows and then with a hex editor, change the first five bytes of the second sector to 4B 45 59 00 00.

Then put the floppy into your machine and boot it up, you'll be asked for a password, just press Enter. Then when you're asked to set the password, type Y then Enter, this will get you into the bios configuration where you can then type in a new password.
