    please help !


    1. Your notebook.
    2. An empty formatted diskette (720 kb or 1,44 mb).
    3. A second computer (e.g. a DOS desktop PC).
    4. A hex-editor (e.g. Norton DiskEdit or HexWorks).


    1. Start the desktop PC and start the hex-editor.
    2. Put the disk in drive A:
    3. Change the first five bytes of sector 1 (boot sector is sector 0) to: 4B 45 59 00 00.
    4. Save it! Now you have a KEYDISK.
    5. Remove the disk from drive A:
    6. Put the disk in the notebook drive.
    7. Start the notebook in Boot Mode (push the reset button).
    8. Press Enter when asked for Password:
    9. You will be asked to Set Password again. Press Y and Enter.
    10. You now see the BIOS configuration where you can set a new password.
