Actually its really difficult as well as risky process to reset he hard drive password on a laptop as you can not bypass it but you can definatly reset it. But that requires you to take out the CMOS battery and reinsert it which is on the motherboard, so it ultimately requires dissembling the laptop.

I will not suggest you to do that as it is a risky process. Contact the customer care and the will help you out. Or you will have to mannually take your laptop to service center if its hard ware locked.

Thanks !!

    How can you bypass the power-on password


    You need to take or send the laptop to a Toshiba Service Center to have the password erased. You may have to prove ownership of the machine. You may also be charged for the service if the laptop is no longer under warranty.

    Toshiba Notebook PC's in the A105 series, and A135 series, suffered a lot of issues with asking for a HarDDrive password.

    [ BIOS
    Basic Input/Output System.
    A small program contained in the BIOS chipset.

    {Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
    Integrated Circuit,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

    A Processor is an I.C.
    Ram Memory uses I.C.'s on the sides. They are DRAM chips.
    Just two examples of I.C.'s used in a personal computer }

    When you power on your computer the first chipset to receive power is the BIOS chipset.
    BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
    {Simple explanation}

    WinXP, and Win 7 are two examples of an O/S.

    BIOS gave the harddrive in your laptop the moniker of HDD1.
    If there was another harddrive installed also, it would be HDD2.
    (HDD 1, HDD 2 ]

    Reloading the O/S may, or May Not stop the request for the HDD1 password.
    Most of the time? No.

    Removing the CMOS battery (RTC Battery) will Not fix this issue.
    {Real Time Clock}

    It's a glitch in the BIOS program.
    Toshiba is aware,

    One solution (Besides Toshiba Support),

    http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/10/remove-clear-toshiba-laptop-bios/

    { NOTE*
    When you go to perform a BIOS update, make SURE the power will not go out.
    If the power goes out during upgrading, you will wind up with an expensive doorstop, or an ornament for a table.

    A battery backup device of some sort is recommended }

    The hard drive password is set from the BIOS configuration where the hard drive was installed and you need to know the password to remove the existing password. You can only remove the password from that computer's BIOS and moving the hard drive to another omputer will not allow you to remove the password or access any data on that hard drive because the password is stored in the hard drive's firmware. This password protected hard drives prevents unauthorized access to the data on that hard disk.
    Removing the BIOS battery will reset the BIOS but will not remove the password.
    Some computers have been setup with Power On Passwords and/or hard drive passords and it is possible to hack/read the Power On Password that is stored on an EEPROM chip on the laptop, but it is not a simple process.
    You will need to buy a new hard drive and now you also have a nice paper weight.
