    Factory reset to remove dual boot, or at least attempt to.
    Pulled Bios battery
    Pulled main battery
    On power up get splash logo for a second followed by password box with cursor. Every password I have ever used on this machine just results in invalid and then machine locks. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Have you tried leaving the password blank?

    More times than I can count. Tech savvy son calls it "BONED". As much as I know about acronyms, I don't think that's computer speak .

    You said it was dual boot. What was the other operating system? Are you still given options of which one to boot to?

    No options other than to try to guess what password the thing is asking for. Local tech person, says it looks like something the manufacturer might have placed to trouble shoot the unit if shipped in for service. Pretty much looks like that is my only option at this point.

    I'm afraid there's not much else we can recommend since we don't assist with bypassing passwords.
