You can get around this however it's not to easy. You would have to take the unit apart and locate the BIOS chip, this chip needs to pulled out, aswell as removing the the CR2032 battery which stores time and date on the computer. Leave both of these removed for a few minutes and re-install. This should wipe the password out. Like I said though it's not something that's easily done. Good Luck Hope this helps. L8R

My e500 is not turning on,even if its plugged in,


To check for a fault in the power button PCB. Remove the battery and power cord. Take out the screw behind the left hinge and unclip the cover over the power buttons. Located under the power button cover is a PC board that is held in with 2 screws, check the miniature plug soldered underneath the right hand side if it is still soldered to the PCB. It can break off and stay in the socket.
This can cause no response when the buttons are pressed and no lights to come on. It will need special surface mount soldering by a technician.
