slightly off topic but still somewhat relevant:

A lesser known fact about most new toshiba laptops (and some old as well).

If you have the machine completely shut off, hold down the zero key (0) then power it on it will boot you into the recovery partition where you can restore the machine back to the factory defaults. This is the only way I know to get into the hidden toshiba recovery partitions.

It will definitely get rid of you password.

If you've tried the passwords you use for everything else and similar cases, it might be safe to stick the hash up here and see if someone else can crack it for you. (That said, if it turns out to be similar to any of your other passwords you'll definitely need to change those.)
