The laptop is an IMB ThinkPad. Pentium III and I believe it's running Windows 98 (the little sticker on it says Windows 98)
UPDATE: Alright, so I switched the Hard Drive out and put it in an identical ThinkPad my grandfather had given me a while back. I got the same password prompt, so I assume the Hard Drive is passworded and not the BIOS. This means I should be able to boot off of a floppy ('tis a shame the laptop doesn't have a floppy drive) and wipe the hard drive? Right?
I've tried getting into safe mode, BIOS, everything. No matter what I do during startup I always get that password prompt. I can't boot off of a CD, so I assume I can't boot off a floppy either? I can't get into BIOS to check the boot order, so it may still be possible.
UPDATE2: Hmm.... so I swapped the hard drive from my grandfather's ThinkPad into the new ThinkPad, and I get the SAME Password Prompt. Could the Hard Drive AND the BIOS be passworded???
