Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a Toshiba M55 Laptop with an XP Operating Sytem which I am not able to log into Windows because I don't remember the Password. I have the Original Microsoft Disk & Recover Disk (however, Circuit City gave me the wrong Recovery disk apparently). Any way that I can solve this issue? I heard I could remove the CMOS Battery and turn on the Laptop for a minute and then replace it and that would wipe out the existing Password... is this true?

I donated 100.00 for my friends IBM thinkpad T30 p-4 xp as/is thinking I could get it fixed.
