Cannot get past BIOS password request in my Satellite L305D-S5900

\015 Hey\015\012guys. So I bought this laptop almost a couple of years ago, but then my\015\012wife got a new computer from work, so I started using her (better)\015\012laptop instead, and my Satellite spent some time collecting dust in the\015\012garage. Now I want to give the Toshiba to my nephew, but I cannot\015\012remember the password when the computer boots up. As soon as I start\015\012the computer, there is a black screen with a blue box in the middle\015\012that asks me for my password.I'm pretty tech savvy so I\015\012did some research and found that I'm not the only one with the problem.\015\012However, the only solutions involve putting a floppy disk in the laptop\015\012with a keydisk.exe program on it... but guess what... it doesn't have a\015\012floppy drive in the laptop!The only other solution I\015\012heard was to take apart the laptop, expose the motherboard, and take\015\012out then put back in a small battery that looks like a nickel. I don't\015\012feel very comfortable taking apart a laptop...So I'm wondering what do I do now? I don't have the Windows install CD... Please help!\015

Hello\015\012
\015\012You will need to take the machine apart and short a jumper on the system board, if you do not know what you are doing I recommend that you take your machine to a repair shop. \015\012
You want to look on the system board for a jumper called J45 - this will allow you to short the computer and remove the BIOS password.\015\012
\015\012ONLY DO THIS IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!
