For your OS or for your BIOS on the motherboard?

If you have XP Home...any version...start the laptop immediatly hitting the F8 key. That will give you a window with options for booting the system. At the top of the list you will see a option called "Safe Mode". choose that option and let the machine boot to the user login. Either choose the Administrator logo if shown, or type in the word "administrator" in the user name field and then click enter. It should let you log in without a password if it hasn't been changed. When your laptop fully loads, go to control panel and find the users icon and click on that. Choose the user who's password you want to change and change it. It will not ask for the Old password.

On the BIOS, you'll have to unplug the battery, abbout the size of a US nickle. once you unplg it, leave it that way for about 20 minutes. Make sure you do not have the Laptop Battery in it's bay, as this will keep power to the motherboard and will not allow any BIOS memory to drain from the IC chip. Once the BIOS has dropped it's charge, the BIOS will be reset to factory settings. You'll then need to get back into the BIOS ant set the clock to the right time and date.

On your OS password...there are some tools out there to use that use a pre-programmed floppy and your original OS installation CD to reset the Administrator's password. They normally require you to know what the Admin name is. Any IT in his right mind with have renamed the Admin user name and installed a password.

On the XP home versions, if you try my suggestion, and are not able to access the Admin account, most likely a knowledgeable user added a password to that account...because by default...Home always installs the Admin without a password...though access to that account is only by using the Safe Mode boot method.
