The BIOS one can usually be eliminated by disconnecting the battery and shorting the terminals, if necessary, then plugging the battery back in. The administrator pass work can sometimes be gotten around by pressing the F8 while loading,then changing it. The most undesirable option is to reformat and buy another OS. Sorry for the hard time.
