    Thank you for your response, I get the password request when I’m powering on the laptop, the attachment should give you an idea of which password it is.

    It's the Power on Password M8 - you should be able to clear by removing the power, battery and back-up battery for a while as per this:

    Hi, I have tried that but still get the same password request, I think I will leave the CMOS and the battery out over night and see if that helps.
