    You should be able to press F12 to go to the boot menu to choose the cd-rom to boot off of as long as you don't have a master password set on the system. Do you have the cd's to restore it with?

If its a CMOS password , you can take the keyboard off ur laptop and there should be a reset switch to clear the CMOS

Toshiba satellite pro m15 s405 video card replacement


Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.

Usb ports on a toshiba satellite pro m15-S405


You can if you have good soldering skills. The welds are located on the opposite side of the motherboard. Just go to partstore.com or ebay to find a raw module to replace it. Otherwise you must replace the motherboard. Remember, heat the work not the solder, and use low watt if lots of smaller circuits are closeby.
