SOURCE: removal of bios level password
Some laptops are passworded default at'oooo' or 'ooooo'. The bios re-set is the 'JBAT1' terminal, from jumpers 1-2 to 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to 1-2 again, but where the terminal is exactly on your motherboard i do not know. You may also try removing the bios didc shaped battery for 15 minutes or so, then replacing.

what you need to do is pull both the laptop battery as well as the cmos battery. in some instances, the battery can be pulled, but on other models, i have seen the battery as an actual physical part on the motherboard or somewhere where it is not easily accessible, in which case you need to clear the cmos by using a jumper on the motherboard, since it is a laptop, they are all different. you may need to see if you can locate a copy of the motherboards schematics and go from there.

You'll need a special tool that only Toshiba has. I believe you can get yours cleared for FREE if you tell them that all of a sudden out of nowhere you have a bios password. Stick to that story because they've already admitted to the problem with many of their laptops. You'll have to find an authorized Toshiba repair center to take care of it for you. Otherwise I believe they charge around $100 to clear it.
Don't bother to try the cmos battery trick, it doesn't work on your model. The password is stored on an onboard chip.
