Question about Toshiba Satellite L500 Series Notebook
I always use a bios password. Can you access your bios (also called CMOS) I am sure there is a bios reset (usually a jumper you install over two metal prongs on the motherboard) or other method to reset your bios to factory.

SOURCE: removal of bios level password
Some laptops are passworded default at'oooo' or 'ooooo'. The bios re-set is the 'JBAT1' terminal, from jumpers 1-2 to 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to 1-2 again, but where the terminal is exactly on your motherboard i do not know. You may also try removing the bios didc shaped battery for 15 minutes or so, then replacing.
