theres a set of removable pin jumpers inside the machine towards the bottom of the motherboard, one of them is the password jumper, remove it and start it up to reset or remove your password. they are super small so maybe use a pair of tweezers and a magnifying glass and a flashlight.

good luck

New laptop , now router unsecure; want to use admin and 1234 cannot find the screen to try that fix - do not know password created many yrs ago - do not have expertise to reset router;Netgear CE0560

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

Laptop HDD is now locked

The hard drive password is setup from the BIOS configuration.
To remove the password you need to go into the BIOS configuration and you need to get the password from your brother.
There are no backdoor passwords, if you cannot get the password or guess the password then you need a new hard disk. If he has also set a BIOS password (you need this to get into the BIOS configuration), otherwise he owes you a new computer.
