Thank you
Dear Boscru,

You normally get to reset the BIOS password through the below instructions.

For this type of laptop, you will however need to contact the manufacturer for obtaining its backdoor password.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the input. I found out my nephew tried starting it and got a message for a new password and put it in. Fortunately he remembered it. I removed the password protection in the BIOS as I do not need it. Thanks, again.
