    Pulling the CMOS battery out for a minute or two should sort it. Nothing else you can do as far as I know.

    Usually a proof of purchase is needed to show ownership but I don't know if Toshiba service wants it.
    Contact your local service. They will tell you what to do.

    Removing the bios battery won't help. If it did, why bother with a password in the first place...
    Bypassing security methods is against forum rules too, so I'm going to lock this thread.
