Question about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook
Please be more descriptive with your problems...
To remove a BIOS password you will need to unplug your laptop and take out the laptop battery. Then you will need to locate your CMOS battery and remove it for 15 seconds and place it back in. It will look highly similar to a watch battery.

If you know the current password, use it to enter BIOS SETUP.
Then, type a "blank" ("space-bar") as the "new" password.
If you don't know the current password, you're stuck;
this is a "security" feature to prevent a stolen laptop from being used by the thief.

It cannot be removed using software.
To remove the password you will have to remove the CMOS battery located on the lower side of the motherboard.
To access the battery the computer must be disassembled completely.
