Make A boot disk from a working Windows 98 machine. After you make the boot disk, copy the MS 'debug' to the floppy. 
Boot the laptop from the floppy.(this might not be possible due to a setting in the BIOS.) 

Search online for MS Debug +clear CMOS 
Run the Debug program and type in the commands exactly as written. 

reboot, and you should be able to go into the BIOS by holding F2.  

That's it. 

If you can't boot from the floppy, remove the hard drive. the computer should boot from the floppy, no matter what the BIOS setting is.

    Need to reset or erase admin password


    There are Linux password removal programs on the Internet. It is designed to remove passwords on NT, Win 2K and XP.
    You copy the program to a CD and boot up from this CD. It allows you to reset or remove the users and administrator passwords.
    Google search for these programs "password recover" There is another solution. You can reinstall windows and this will give you a clean computer and possibly better performance without the accumulated junk/rubbish. Don't forget to get/download all the device drivers (eg. video, audio, modem,NIC etc.) before you start.

    Panasonic c-29 toughbook BIOS Password breaking


    you have to remove or unplug the cmos battery which is attached to the motherboard inside the laptop, doing this will clear all passwords. If the password clears replace the battery.
    Here is some more usefull info if you want to this yourself>
    The guts of the machine are usually under the keyboard. If you are okaywith opening up the laptop, you'll need to remove a few screws, thebattery and the hard drive, then carefully pry up the keyboard to gainaccess to the items that the manufacturers say you shouldn't tamperwith. If its just a matter of getting into the bios and theres apassword, you can usually simply remove the battery and leave itwithout power for at least 24hours, then it should reset....doesn'talways work but since most laptops actually do not have a standard cmosbattery, this would be one way to go about it. Of course you could justtry to figure out what the password is, someone has to have put it inthere so they should know what it is, or you could go to http://tcc.toughbook.com/ and get the bios update, which will reset it completely.

    Bios password


    usually you can reset the password by taking out the battery and removing the AC adapter, then either pulling out the small watch sized battery on the motherboard and leave it off for a few minutes or move a jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios. If that isn't possible or doesn't work there is a list of backdoor passwords available here. http://saptha.com/blog/?p=32
