You need to dismantle the laptop and remove/replace the BIOS battery. This will reset the bios and provide normal functionality.
If you are not sure about doing this, take it to a pc place (NOT pcworld!) and have them do it for you.

Guys, i got my toshiba lap top i had to put my laptop in my friends house so enterd a password quickly before leaving the next day , i try to enter the password and it doesn't work . i tried to fix it ...

If the password is a user or administrator password, reinstall the OS.
If the enter password request is displayed just after the system powers up, you must take the computer to a Toshiba Service Center to have the password erased.
For an HDD password, nothing doing. Get a new HDD or scour the Internet for some software that can retrieve the PWD.

A505 S6970 Toshiba laptop HDD#1/SDD#1 password

Maybe you mean log on password. If you never enter a password to log on, but suddenly when turning on the computer, you are prompted to enter a password to log on, but always failed. You try to log in using an administrator user but failed. Chances are, the operating system is infected with viruses.
So, the operating system has controlled the virus.

Install the new operating system (not repair the operating system)

My mom has a toshiba satellite L670 series and her computer is asking her for her hdd sdd password how do you find out what it is

HDD passwords are designed to be 100% secure and there is nothing available to
reset or remove the HDD password whether the password failure is caused by human
error or HDD defect. Users must ensure they have regular backups.Unfortunately,a new HDD will be
required and is not covered by the standard warranty.

Please enter hdd1/ssd1 to get start in normal mode

I presume that this message comes up when you first turn the laptop on. In that case the Hard Drive has been lock with a password. The is no way to remove this with either knowing the password or sending the laptop to a specialist who can remove the password for you.
