So i was given a laptop by my bf who found it in a dumpster. After buying a power cord and turning it on, it loaded a bright red screen indicating that the laptop was owned by a rental company, and is now locked. I didn't steal it, and it was on its way to a landfill so I was wondering if any one could tell me if there was any way to get that off this laptop without haveing to call the rental place (already called but have to wait till tomorrow to talk to anyone) it's a Sony vaio with Windows 7 home and the bios has a password lock on it too.

Nothing anyone can do
Talk to the rental company.
Just because it was dumped does not mean it was not stolen.

It is highly likely it was dumped because it was locked after the thief tried to use it

This topic is now closed because forum rules prohibit anybody suggesting any help except contact the rental company or owner of the computer.
