Last week I bought a used laptop from a friend's garage sale for just 150 bucks.
Everything is working just fine.
I've replace the Vista OS with a Windows 7, and upgraded the memory from 1 to 2gb.
The problem is the bios, can't access it due to a password prompt.
I tried asking the original owner about it's password but he does't know either.
Apparrently one of his nieces played with it's bios and can't recall it.
I have tried removing the CMOS but it still continues to ask for a password.
Can anyone help?
