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.

SOURCE: How can remove BIOS password
These ppl have no idea how a laptop is built. There are no CMOS jumpars in a laptop, the only way to remove cmos password in a laptop is to use special software, hard to get and use because most laptops do not have floppy drives anymore, so the best way to do it is to dissassemble the laptop and desolder the battery for the cmos memory, one leg will do, wait 5 min then resolder it back. You may have figured out this is NOT for 98% of laptop owners, but a good repair shop and someone who really knows how to work on a laptop can do it in thier sleep.

The BIOS password is removed by the BIOS configuration, you need the BIOS password to get into the BIOS configuration.
But if you do not have the BIOS password then you need to construct this dongle device.
TOSHIBA BIOS PASSWORD DONGLE
You can build a dongle that plugs into the printer port.
Purchase a 25 pin male D sub connector and solder insulated wires to the various pins as listed below. The pins are numbered on the connector

Wire the pins as follows :-
Plug the finished dongle in the printer port and power up the laptop. The password will be reset, go into the BIOS configuration to check the BIOS password, you may have to disable the BIOS password.
