You will need to start the machine in safe mode by pressing F8 at start up. Once in safe mode, log in as the administrator, from here you can clear user passwords in the user accounts section.

You will need to reset the CMOS/BIOS
anti-static wristband.(if you dont have one then make sure you touch something metal before touching any circuitry in the computer)
unplug the laptop and remove the battery pack from the laptop. While unplugged press and hold the power button for 5-10 seconds to discharge any power left in the laptop.
(IMPORTANT: Make sure you wear your anti-static wristband or touch something metal before handling the circuitry of the computer)
This is where it will get tricky you will need to open the laptop and look for a battery on the main chipboard(motherboard).Be extremely careful because there will be ribbons connecting the keyboard to the motherboard so take apart the computer slowly. Slow and Steady wins the race here. The Battery will range in size from the size of a nickel to a quarter. You will need to remove this battery. wait about 15 seconds then put it back onto the motherboard where you just took it out from. Put computer back together and plug battery pack in and plug in power and turn on you should be able to access BIOS without being prompted for a password.
You will need to reset the Time and Date of the system in BIOS once completed.
If this is too techy for you then I recommend taking it to your local computer repair shop for them to do for you.
