I recently purchased a computer at a pawn shop. While there it worked fine. When I went to purchase a man wanted it as well. When I took the ticket up to pay he was playing on it. When I got home and plugged it back in, there was a message asking for power- on password. Not sure what he did but now I can use it and it was final sale

there is a BIOS pass stetted
you need to provide the model number or the mainboard number so that we can help you reset it
in the mean time
power off the device
remove the case side cover
locate the mainboard battery and carefully remove it
wait for a few seconds
put it back again and start the machine
you will be prompt with a message stating that your BIOS settings need to be set
depending on your model number it will ask you to press a button to enter BIOS and set the date time and other Basic Input Output Settings.
Good Luck
