Question about Lenovo/IBM IdeaPad S110 Series Laptop Power AC Adapter / Charger
Sorry, you're hosed. If you forgot your HDD password the only thing you can do is replace the drive and rebuild your S110. There is no way to remove or reset it without using the original password in the original motherboard. Period.
If you're misinterpreting the screen information and it happens to be the bios user password that's forgotten it is possible to have an authorized Lenovo repair center reset it with adequate proof of ownership. Lenovo themselves will not do it. If it's the SVP password for the bios the only solution is to replace the motherboard. Period.
Having passwords that can be reset like in the old days just by jumpering 2 wires defeats the purpose of having a password in the first place.

What make/model of computer? What operating system? What BIOS type/version/revision?
There IS a way to reset it without losing the data on the drive. It sounds like he has set up a password in the system BIOS or either password protected an entire volume in Win 200x/Vista.
If he has set a BIOS pw, you can remove the batteries and jumper the CMOS reset pin for a few seconds...IF you can get to it. If you can determine the BIOS name/version, I can probably put you onto a boot diskette that will clear the BIOS.
For 3 bucks, I'll send the boyfriend a virus!!! lol
