Ok so someone brought me a laptop to fix up and sell. The BIOS is password protected and the boot option menu isn't active. I'm really trying not to open the laptop up and pull the CMOS because otherwise there's nothing wrong with this laptop. Anybody know of a trick to get a system to boot to CD???

Call the manufacturer, be prepared to provide proof of ownership.

Tom's Hardware cannot and does not assist with passwords.

Closing this.
