Remove the ram cover, with laptop switched off
Remove the 2 ram modules and insert one in the slot that is furthest away from the motherboard
Just underneath the ram is a thin plastic sheet, gently peel back to reveal two solder contacts
they should say B500, TOUCH THESE WITH A FLAT BLADED SCREWDRIVER while powering on the laptop, the bios password should go.
Replace ram and sheet, replace ram cover reboot.

Sounds like your CPU and HeatSink needs a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on them. You'd have to take the laptop apart to do it. It's shortening out because the paste is dry and causing metal to touch metal and shortening out.

I doubt a Windows 8 driver will work in your case. I would use Windows 7 or 10. You may need to use a USB graphics adapter in place of the internal. Many USB video adapters are more useful for that sort of thing.

Search eBay for windows XP. Buy a copy that comes with a CD key and install. You might try a copy that says it will just reinstall using your existing *********** if you know it. You can use Keyfinder by Magic jellybean to find the existing key and write it down
