Someone has as they would have to enter the bios to do it.
We can't help you bypass it but I'm sure a little research online especially from the manufacturer will light the way to the steps.

Not without opening it completely up or until you get it reloaded.
Then we can run Everest or SIW to get the motherboard info. Then check it against the original specs of the system.

Yep check the tech specs on Sony for the system as it will give the original motherboard model there.

... it wouldnt take the password "blank" what now?

I think by "blank" they mean no password. (I.e., no characters at all, empty, nothing, zilch).

So, try it again but this time don't type in anything when prompted for the password. Simply press the [Enter] key to continue.

Yes by blank we mean do not type anything in that area but only click Enter
If no password was ever setup then it should continue on from there.
