If you are being asked for a boot menu password, then you must have set one (or. if you got the computer from another person, they must have set one).
This laptop does not have the password set by default.
If you can't find the password, you have no alternative but to dissassemble the computer and remove the backup battery and clear the CMOS on the motherboard.

Running bios/boot menu through external monitor


Even if you press F8 and use the boot menu, you will need to type the administrator password. The other alternative is to use a Win OS disc and reinstall from scratch using the COA number underside of your laptop.
