Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

It's actually against the Forum Rules even to ask for password removal help let alone give advice on it and as de5_roy says. it can't be done. If the seller didn't let you have it cheaply on the basis it didn't work, and If it's a BIOS password take dontqqnub's advice.

If it's only a Windows system password, remove the hard disk, buy another and install a new system. Many Linux systems are free of charge if you can't afford Windows - they're just as good and in many cases, far better anyway.

There is a video on youtube, and the guy that made the video will give you a code to reset the bios password, he tells you what to do. You will have to find this video. It worked for my laptop.

I dont feel like getting banned, so no links.
