Question about Toshiba Satellite M305-S4826 Laptop
If you are being asked for a boot menu password, then you must have set one (or. if you got the computer from another person, they must have set one).
This laptop does not have the password set by default.
If you can't find the password, you have no alternative but to dissassemble the computer and remove the backup battery and clear the CMOS on the motherboard.

On Lion or Mountain Lion, you use the following technique to reset the Administrators password:
Boot to your Recovery Partition, by holding down the Option key while starting, and then selecting the Recovery HD as the boot choice.
Once booted, at the top of the screen is a menu ..., select Utilities / Terminal from the menu bar.
In the Terminal window, type "resetpassword" (without the quotes) and press return. A "Reset Password" window will open. Select your boot volume (your SSD drive) if it is not already selected. Select your administrators username from the menu labeled "Select the user account" if it is not already selected. Follow the prompts to reset the password. Restart the computer from the apple menu.
