do you honestly think he got a manual with it?

As yourself if his/her post passes the smell test. Is it reasonable to believe his past employer sold him a locked system three weeks ago, and refuse to unlock the bios for him?

The other side of the coin, even if you DO believe the user, if you post the answer, someone that is NOT valid will come behind and get the same answer. This site gets flooded with people trying to break into stolen systems all the time, most finding the site via a google search.

Do you really want the TR community to be lowered to being flooded by even more thief's?

If you really do believe the user, and really want to help them, send them a peer message, rather than posting the answer out in the open. Would you agree that is a reasonable way to handle it?
