My niece has a M305-S4910 laptop. She set a boot password on it and now has forgotten it. She hasn't used the laptop for sometime, but, now nees to use it for school. Is there any way to reset the password? The computer boots up and goes directly to the screen where it says "Enter Password". I cannot get into BIOS or any boot menus.
We have tried for hours to try and remmeber the password and no luck.

yes, you have to remove the battery, hard drive cover, hard drive, RAM cover, and RAM. Under the bottom RAM stick, you will see a sticker covering the motherboard. Once that is peeled up, you will see two triangular shaped pads on the PC board. Place the top RAM stick back in, and set the laptop on it's side so you can plug it in. Short out those 2 pads using a piece of wire, paperclip, pliars, tweezers, etc. make sure it only touches the 2 pads and NOTHING ELSE. Turn on the computer for a few seconds, then turn it back off. The password will be removed. It will also reset your time and date.

No problem. I recently bought an M305 with a bios password, so the reset location was fresh in my mind.
