Lost Password

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a Compaq Presario 300 series laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. I have lost my logon password & my bios setup password. I have a recovery disk that I want to run so I can just re-install my OS. However I can't get it to boot up with the CD drive & thereby run the recovery disk. How do I get it to boot up with the the CD drive?

This might be a attempt to break in someones computer...however, I`ll help you...

You`ll need to reset BIOS, using the CMOS Battery ( or the jumper )

Thanks for the bios reset info. I had heard of this before. I just need to figure out how to do it with the laptop.
F.Y.I.......my son got this laptop from the previous owner. The owner had gotten a new computer & left this one setting around so long that he had forgot his logon info.
