This laptop was given to me by my sister who has not used it in 5 or 6 years.
I can boot to the Bios setup utility, but I can not get any further to boot windows or even reformat the hard drive as it always asks me for the built in hard drive password that no one remembers. I have tried a couple of solutions that I got online but to no avail...please help!
