You will need to clear the cmos (bios) to reset to defaults (no boot password). If you have the make and model of the laptop, you can probably find a manual for it at the manufacturers web page. That should tell you how to do it. Two ways I know of, remove the battery or use jumpers. The manual will tell the how and were of it.
