Here is something you can try...
When to computer gets to the login screen, hold down CTRL + ALT, and press DELETE once.
You will get a login screen which will allow you to type in the following:
This is due to the fact that many people fail to set an Admin password, but it does not work if this is not the case.
If this does not work, give me more info on the system.

SOURCE: resetting the password
There are two places when you may be asked for a password - can you please clarify which one it is.

It sounds like you are talking about the BIOS startup password and admin password. Since this was 5 years ago, there is a good chance you can open one of the doors on the bottom and find the CMOS battery. If you are lucky, it would be in a battery slot or plugged into a removable jack. If you can remove the battery, that will kill the passwords. If the battery is soldered to the main board you can still cut the wires, but then you would have to rewire the battery by soldering. I'm just answering this to make fixya points. Still don't understand why there is no time limit on these problems. The user surely does not care by now and it is likely few people will be using a 5 year old laptop unless they know a lot about laptops to begin with.
