Question about Toshiba Satellite M105-S3084 Notebook
The CMOS battery most likely needs to be replaced. This can be a daunting task even for a pro. The CMOS battery is most likely a CR2032 watch battery that you can pick up at almost any computer repair shop or even a **** store in the battery section... even at a home supply store where they have replacement batteries for garage door openers.
However, getting to the battery, which is mounted on the motherboard can be very difficult to get to and should only be attempted by a professional repair shop.
My advice? It's probably time to just toss this laptop to the recycle guys (you might want to pull out the hard drive first and mount it into an external case if you want to retrieve files from it... or destroy it with a drill if you don't).
To illustrate just how difficult it can be with this model of Toshiba Satellite, I've included a video link. I think you'll get the picture.

The Toshiba BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and removing the BIOS battery won't work. There is a hardware hack solution (a dongle) to remove the password.
Buy a 25 pin male D Sub connector and join the following pins together by soldering wires to these pins. Make sure the wires do not short against each other. The pins are numbered on the connector.
Plug the dongle into the printer port of your laptop and power up the laptop. Press F2 function key to get into the BIOS and then remove the password. Your laptop should boot up without the password and you can remove the dongle.

Go to device manager, if the sound card has a yellow exclamation point near it, then the driver is at fault. You can simply reinstall the driver or remove the sound card and restart the computer. Windows will discover the sound card and install the driver
