I found a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop that works, but it's "locked." Here's what it says when I turn it on . . .
THIS COMPUTER SYSTEM, #5HB3GF1-595B, is protected by a password authentication system. You cannot access the data on this computer without the correct password.
Opened it up to see if I can find the CMOS battery. There is none. Can't even find the CMOS section on the motherboard. I thought some short circuiting might do the trick.
Can any of you tech heads help me with this? RSVP Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Thanx in advance for your help.
