The laptop allows three tries to enter the password. Then it insists we shutdown.
When I hit the FN and ESC keys together I can get to a screen with minimal utility setting. But other than enabling/disabling timers or increasing/decreasing timers, I can not reset the system.
The laptop no longer has a working battery pack and we use the plug in for power.
While the utilities is a version 1.0 and I realize the outdated use of this laptop, It has many great features.
I would love to save the laptop if possible, especially if inexpensive.
Thank you for any assistance.
