At the password screen, hit enter 3 times and you should receive a 'halt code' - post back with this code.

Hey i purchased a laptop from a lady and it has a bios password on it. I tried bios-pwd.org and its not giving me a proper reset. I didnt really want to dissamble the laptop and find a jumper/bios battery. 

 

The code is 66867410
