Do you really want to return your computer to factory settings? Know that this will wipe out everything - your files, documents, software programs you downloaded yourself, etc. So backup accordingly before pressing the reformat button! You will probably find it just to the right of your Start/boot-up button.
Good luck!

Yikes. I'm not calling you a thief, but 99% of the time when you encounter a computer with a password on the hard drive and the possessor of the computer does not know the password, the computer is stolen.

Your note book has a serial port at either of the sides or at the back just below the screen. It is rectangular in shape.

The cable from your external monitor will fit in to this port perfectly. connect it and power your monitor and Notebook. You should get a display on your external monitor.

In most cases this means bad memory stick. If you are able to, flip over the laptop, find the panel that has the memory under it, unscrew the screw(s) to get the panel off, and pull out the top stick of memory. Flip the laptop back over and power it on. If it works fine again, then that stick was the problem, and you can go buy a replacement and install it back into that slot. If that doesn't fix the issue, turn it off, flip it over, pull the other stick of memory out and put the first stick into that slot. Flip it back upright and turn on again. If that fixes the issue, then the second stick of memory is bad and you can just replace it as well. If neither of those fix the issue please reply on here and we can do further diagnostics.

This pictorial guide will help me explain,


ALL power removed from the laptop. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.
Follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Place a towel, or suitable object on a table, then turn the laptop over, and place on the towel.
If you click on the photo in Step 2 you will see the Harddrive Compartment Cover.

Remove the Philips head screw.
Lift up on the side of the Harddrive Compartment Cover where the screw was.
Remove the cover, lay it aside.

The harddrive plugs into an interface in the Harddrive Compartment.
On the opposite end of the harddrive where it plugs into the interface, should be a single Philips head screw.
Remove the screw.

Use the fabric cloth to gently pull the harddrive away from the interface.
The harddrive may come back only so far, then the end is lifted up to remove the harddrive.
(End opposite of the back of the harddrive where it plugs into the interface)

Use caution as you can accidentally bend pins on the harddrive.

For additional questions, or to clarify what I have stated please post in a Comment.

If it is the Windows password, try downloading ERD Commander. It has a utility called locksmith that you can use to change the password or set it to nothing.
