You should be able to force the BIOS to reset. The procedure to do this is as follows:
First remove the memory sticks. You should then see two contacts in the upper left corner with (XXX) next to them. Remove the battery, plug in the power supply and connect these two contacts together, you can use a paper clip or something metal, with these connected then turn the system on. After doing this remove the paper clip, put the battery and memory back in and you should find the password has been removed.

Did you ever have a password on the bios, that you knew? If so the following might work. It wouldn't hurt to give it a try anyway as it may not ask for a password at all:
Turn off the laptop
Then press ESC and the power button together
Enter the password if asked (you may not be asked for one at all)
Press F1 to enter the BIOS
go to the password field
Then do backspace or space
enter your existing password (again you may not get asked)
press enter
when asked for New password
Just hit enter
Repeat to verify

If the above one would not work, there is no way for us to access this password through the bios. When this happens it usually means there is something wrong with the hard drive. If that is the case you would need to contact Toshiba. The nice thing is most harddrives have a must longer warranty than the rest of the system.

One other option you can try is to take the harddrive out of the system and use an adapter so you can plug the drive into a normal PC. You can get these adapters at most computer shops and some will simply turn the laptop hard drive into a USB drive
. Then on the other computer the drive should show up, because it's not in a Toshiba system the password should be defeated and you can then do a full format of the drive. Put the drive back in the laptop and the password should be gone.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.
