Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

When the computer turns on it was going to a blue screen that required the Admin or Power On password.  I followed the instructions I found to fix this on YouTube which meant clicking Enter 4 times until the system locked and provided a code (79474704).  I was hen instructed to go to BiosBug.com and enter the code.  I was then going to receive a new code that would be input into the Admin Password or Power On Password box and turn off the password.

 

Unfortunately, the code provided at BiosBug.com does not work on my laptop, so now it is permanently disabled.  I can't even get to the bios to try to fix the issue there.

 

Any ideas how to get beyond the password box and into the BIOS so I can try to defuse the password?

 

Thanks
