How can you get in when I can't? With out the password ***** doesn't boot
Expert:  BigDish101 replied 8 months ago.

I can't but I can tell you how. Resetting the BIOS password ***** a laptop requires physically taking the laptop apart. You must open it up and remove the BIOS battery to clear the CMOS which will clear the password.

If you are not comfortable taking the laptop apart I would take it to a local technician to have them open it up and reset it for you. Many may require proof of ownership.
