    There's a password dongle that unlocks the password. There's diagrams of it all over the web, or you can get one from Ebay for about £15.

    It bypasses the password so you can enter BIOS and set your own etc.

    This is the one i used to use

    You need a 25pin male adaptor and connect all the following

    1-5-10
    2-11
    3-17
    4-12
    6-16
    7-13
    8-14
    9-15

    Then plug it into the pararell port and switch the laptop on and off.

    It should be cleared then.
