Enter the incorrect password THREE times.

After you do, a numeric code will be displayed.

Post that code here.

One of the "experts" on this forum will use that code to tell you a different password that you will need to enter.

Once you have entered BIOS SETUP mode, set a new password.

Your situation is not simple, so be patient during the answer arrives (which is not guaranteed).


Nowadays business series notebook pc's has tougher security protection, error code not necessarily exists / help.
Hopefully the this link will give you some helpful advices.


Anyway as a temporary solution, boot order can be modified dynamicaly on startup via F9 boot menu. You can read about dynamic and static boot order eg. in this manual.


Best luck!
