Question about Computers & Internet
BIOS passwords on a laptop would be especially tricky to override, especially on a laptop, you will have to take the laptop to a service provider for the specified laptop brand, and have them wipe/replace the chip that contains the password. Hope this helps.

You must unlock first the HDD password. Hard disk lock passwords cannot be removed by reformatting the disk, fdisk or any other software procedure (since the disk will not allow and reads or writes to the disk, it cannot be reformatted.) Hard disk password is stored in the hard disk firmware and moves with the hard disk.You can test to determine if your hard disk is locked by attempting to access it in another laptop. You will need a HDD password unlocker.

SOURCE: Hdd password frozen on laptop
if you download the sata drivers from the toshiba website for your specific laptop and then extract them and get nlite ( www.nliteos.com and slipstream the drivers into the xp disc you can then re install xp and it should allow you to boot.
As for the hard drive frozen password that should be in the bios on the hard drive that you set it for so it should remember it
if not you may have to contact toshiba and they should have a back door password that they can produce once you give them the asset tag ( serial number of the laptop ) and once you enter that it should resolve the hard drive frozen issue.
Had a hard drive frozen at a school once and had to call dell ( as it was a dell laptop obviously ) and gave them the serial number and they created a back door password for me - jobs a good one :D
