Question about Toshiba Satellite L505-S5966 Notebook
What is the question? Can you bypass the password? Normally No. You must take the laptop to a Toshiba Service Center to have the password removed or overridden. You may have to pay for the service if the laptop is out of warranty.

You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.
Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.

Resetting a Toshiba BIOS Password
KeyDisk will reset the BIOS password on Toshiba laptops.
Older Toshiba laptops can be convinced to boot without their power-on BIOS password by attaching a dongle to the parallel port which crosses a number of the pins. The pin out is:
Pins 1-5-10 2-11 3-17 4-12 6-16 7-13 8-14 9-15 Some Toshiba's can be convinced to bypass the startup BIOS password if you hold down the <LEFT-SHIFT> key while booting the system.

remove the power cable, batter and the cmos battery from the computer, wait a couple of minutes and reassemble. The bios with the password will be reset.
