depends on what type of password is enabled. Which one is it?
A logon password, a bios password etc.

Most PC's have a hidden partition, check out a manual or google for it to see if you have one that you can access.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

not sure, but when I access bios before startup it wants me to input a password. Also if I let it run thru the startup it takes me to a user login entry for password.

Where did you get this laptop? The previous owner should give you those things. If you bought it somewhere else, you may want to return it.
