Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A135-S2276 Notebook ?

Bios Password problem solved but now HDD password awry

\015 We did the Bios password suggestions (the paper clip thing) and that worked, now it is asking for HDD password. Because we didn't know where to find the specific battery (as suggested for removal from another website) we accidentally removed the Hard drive and that prompted the HDD password prompt we think. Is there any way around that? We got the bois update but the cd rom won't boot it and I don't know if that would help anyway. If we could figure out how to get the cd rom to boot a disk, maybe we could reinstall windows xp? Our model is Toshiba Satallite A105-S4244. Please, it is so expensive to just replace the hard drive. We called Toshiba and they said it could be fixed if sent to them for outrageous money. Any help would be greatly appreciated.\015

Just google "lost password" and you will find several utilities that will fix this. Simply burn the utility to a CD (they're typically in ISO format), and boot off the CD, follow the directions with that specific program. I've had very good success with that.
