Iam I screwed??

Long story short, I bought a laptop from coworker. It ran fine for 2days, now today I started it up and got a message "cmos battery failure". Now its asking for a password that I have no clue what it is. I type 3 random things and it shuts down on the third attempt. Its a toshiba satellite a305-s6905.

Iam I screwed or an easy fix?

Cmos battery is cheap. Ask your co-worker for the password.

Try 0000, and replace the CMOS battery.
