Having problems with your HP Compaq nc6400 Notebook ?

URGENT! Jumper setting (J4 jumper)

\015 I usually use the 'power on password' mode before I'm able to start my laptop, but i think I may have either forgotten my password or something, because it's not accepting my password anymore. Please d'you have an immediate solution? I think I may require to check the Jumper setting (J4 jumper) as was recommended, but i need to be able to locate that or any better solution to my being able to log on to my laptop.\015
