Answers :

The olny way to clear a password is to take out the CMOS battery and rejump some jumper settings on the motherboard.  In a laptop, this can be very tedious and difficult.  I would suggest unless you have extensive knowledge in taking these apart, take it in to a repair shop and have them do it.  I don't know where you live at, but around this area I charge aobut 25-40 bucks for a laptop to reset, depending on the model.  Older models are a little cheaper because they are easier to get at.  You could attempt it yourself, but please do not try this unless you are very comfortable with what you are doing as you could render the laptop into a giant paperweight.
