Hi Geeks long time no see ;-)
Got this laptop back the other day. Locked out.
Seems the password is stored in eeprom so battery removal etc
does not work. I'm after a method for erasing or reprogramming
the eeprom. After all, it is
Electronically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory.
Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks.
