All you need to do to access the BIOS is to reset it. To reset the BIOS you would need to remove the CMOS battery and place it back, the BIOS password will be back to default and you able to access the BIOS.
NOTE: the CMOS battery is located at the back of your laptop, or it will be much better for you to call a local technician and have him do it for you.
For you to use the recovery disc, once you boot the computer press F12 then select to boot your computer to (CD\DVD drive) make sure that the disc is in the disc tray, then press enter. Your computer will automatically boot into you recovery disc.
Here’s the worst case scenario. The CMOS battery is hidden under the
laptop cover. In order to access and replace the battery you’ll have to
disassemble the whole laptop. This is a Toshiba Satellite A305 laptop. The blue circle is the battery. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote and leave a message.
There are several access panels on bottom of your laptop. These should have markings that designate what is behind each. CMOS battery can be either behind the hard drive panel or the memory card panel.
Unfortunately, if you can't remember your bios password you'll have to reset the CMOS. This is usually done via a jumper on your laptops motherboard itself, or removing the battery on the motherboard while the laptop is unplugged and the main battery is taken out. Be very careful when opening up your laptop, make sure all the screws needed are removed, as they are easy to miss. If you don't feel comfortable opening up your laptop, I would recommend taking it to a certified technician.
