When it asks for the password, type it in and enter the BIOS. Once there, disable the passwords.

OK, it may be possible to do this... open up the computer, remove the CMOS battery and the main battery, leave it for several minutes, try turning it on a few times and wait some more.

Put it all back together and it just might have no password. If it does, try it again, and let it sit overnight.

Since laptops are so easy to steal, clearing passwords on them is very difficult.
