The BIOS may be removed by removing the battery, or removal and replacement of jumpers, you would need to open the netbook, including removal of the screen. Not a task to be taken lightly.

There is also the possibility that after a few reboots the netbook may be rendered useless. Because of the security impact, Toshiba, among other manufacturers have changed the way the password is stored. Unfortuantely, this will mean sending it back to Toshiba to have them perform the password reset, contact details below:

0871 495 8944*

Check the status of your Toshiba service case below.
*Calls to this number will cost no more than 8p/min from a BT Landline. Costs of calls from mobiles to this number may cost significantly more. Sales & Marketing - 9.00am to 6.00pm, Mon to Fri Technical Support - 9.00am to 6.00pm, Mon to Fri
Sorry I can't be of any more help at this time...

SOURCE: Reset BIOS password at Toshiba 4030 CDS

If the password is stored in the BIOS and not on an EEPROM chip then you can remove the BIOS battery and wait for 1/2+ hour before inserting the battery back in. If you don't want to wait then short out the battery contacts on the motherboard. The BIOS settings will now be set to the factory default.
Alternately some laptops allow you to select an alternate boot up device by pressing the F12 key as you power up.

SOURCE: Bios Password

From what I remember a bios password is easy to remove in some Toshiba laptop models. You just remove the battery. Pull the RAM out (make sure you are grounded when doing this--at a minimum don't walk around or shuffle your feet while touching the RAM) Under the RAM there should be a piece of mylar tape. (shiny brown or black) That should expose 2 or 3 solder welds where no component is located. Take a paperclip and make contact with the welds for at least 10 seconds. This should short out where the bios is stored.

For the HDD issue this might work:
Try F8 before the system POST(s) to get to ADMIN account in safe mode. Then go to control panel and user accounts and remove the password. This only works depending upon your OS. Good luck.

I have a Toshiba NB305-N410BN mini laptop. I changed my password and can't remember what I changed it to save my life. I tried restarting it while holding down 0 (zero) but nothing happens. PLEASE HELP ME!

Try a password recovery tool, such as Ophcrack. It's a free download. You will need another pc to download the disc image and burn it to a cd. Then boot from the cd on your locked pc. You may need to go into the bios on your machine and change the boot order so the cd is before the hard drive.
