Steps to resolve this

by jdclyde In reply to Initial pasword on laptop

First, this is a question in need of an answer, so if you post it in the TQ&A instead of the Discussions area, you WILL get an answer quicker.

Second, you need to give more information.
What make/model of laptop is this?
What OS is running on the system?

It SOUNDS like you are talking about a BIOS password, correct? What posessed you to set that in the first place?

Removing Bios battery is not going to be quite as easy with a laptop, so I will digress this to people that know the laptops much better than I do. But like I said, those people generally don't even look in the discussions, so move it over the the Q&A and you will be good.

good luck.
