Sounds like a BIOS startup password. Ask your friend to tell you the password. Sold it without telling you this, did (s)he?? Not very friendly.

If you cant get the password then you could try this
http://www.ibm-thinkpad-760e-760el-760ed-760eld-chip-w-prs.net-software-download.com/
It is $125 aud
Much cheaper to just call your friend

This DOES sound like a customized BIOS message, coupled with a startup protection password. Those are usually employed to prevent unauthorized use of the laptop, in case of theft etc. It seems highly irresponsible of the seller not to tell you how to be able to use the machine. Contact them at first possible moment and ask for the password..
