Please see the EE article on laptop BIOS passwords.

At present, what we know is this:

... see this page first:  
  "Only an Authorized Service Provider can clear a Password if it has been forgotten. You will be required to show proof of ownership to the ASP prior to having the Password removed this way."

If you learn otherwise, please let us know so we can keep the article up to date.
If it is an older toshiba laptop that still has a parellel port, there is a special bios password tool you can buy that will reset the passwords on toshiba laptops.  For example of the tool see this website: http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2006/02/10/remove-clear-toshiba-laptop-bios/
On ebay you can often purchase tools or software and manuals to remove bios passwords
