If I understand correctly, you tried to install Win 2000 in order to work around the logon password for the Win. XP install on it, and didn't have a product key to complete the install? If so, you can just boot to an XP disk and reinstall XP, otherwise you'll need to come up with a product key for 2000 to complete it's install (you can pull a valid key from any box with a Win 2000 COA (certificate of authenticity) and that will allow you to complete the install, but may not allow you to register and update, but still may depending on the origin of the Key.
You may also want to check for a restore partition on the Hard Drive, as you may be able to restore the PC to it's original (shipped with) configuration that way also. Ok, I just re read your post and see in the title that it's an older laptop and probably won't have a restore partition, and possibly didn't even come with XP installed, so you may want to check with your Buddies Son and see if he has an OS Disk that you can use to put XP back on it also.
When you say that you removed the battery are you referring to the BIOS battery, or the laptop's?
I hope one of these suggestions helps, Good Luck.

I search for a driver for my laptop TOSHIBA T9000 MODEL N° PT900E-06QW3-FR

Drivers are dependent on the version of Windows installed. You can download from Toshiba support page but they may only work on XP or older. If you have installed a new OS, try installing XP drivers or search Windows update.

Click here to go to Toshiba driver download page. Drivers are for Tecra 9000.

Reset bios

If this were a desktop computer you could take off the side cover and take out the BIOS battery. (Silver and looks about the size of a quarter) And then put it in after about a minute.
For a laptop the same thing applies but I highly suggest you take it to someone who has done this before as laptops are very tightly packed and for someone who has never done it very intimidating.
I cannot recommend you open up your laptop to take out the battery yourself but this is what needs to be done.
