Take a look at Chapter 5 of your user manual: http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/manuals/userguides/su1266386/Sat_A100A105_06Jan17.pdf

One of your local Toshiba service centers can clear the password for a fee for you once you provide proof of ownership. If you registered it on the Toshiba website that is considered proof.

Some other info: BIOS update for Satellite A100/A105, In very rare cases, the battery pack of your PC may stop accepting a charge, i.e., the battery stops working and no longer supplies power to the computer. To minimize the risk of ever experiencing this problem, we strongly recommend that you download and install the latest BIOS

Your model also suffers from: BIOS Password may automatically be set by the computer. Updating the BIOS to the latest version will prevent this from occurring.

In your case this is too late. Make sure whoever clears the bios also update to the latest bios.
