If they can prove ownership the Local Toshiba office will unlock it.  Otherwise you're kinda stuck as the password details are in a non-volatile EEPROM - Removing the power won't work, which would leave you with replacing the chip.

You can't remove the password, without knowing it !
modern laptops keep it in a security chip - for anti-theft reasons
resetting the bios does not help;  nor does removing the battery, since the password is not in there
you would need to know in what chip it is, and how to reset that
you have to turn it in to the manufacturer, and show proof of ownership - then they can help
or replace the mobo !
