    Default HP Compaq 8510p Setup Password, and using HP DMIFIT utility

    Well, to make a long-story short, I pretty much my laptop just magically died and got messed up. It's a HP Compaq 8510p and it's a school laptop so I have 100% responsibility for it and I gotta fix it so the school doesn't charge me. What happened was I was downloading some things onto my laptop (100% sure they weren't viruses) and all of a sudden the internet stopped working, I couldn't disable it, repair it, etc. So I decided to shut down the computer, but when I turned it on it sent me to a black screen (It started up normally) after the HP logo thing, and all it is is just a black screen with a blinking Underscore ( _ ) at the top left of the screen. I found out my BIOS sequence got messed up and now I have to access it and fix it. Unfortunately for me it's a school laptop and it has a Setup Password. It won't let me type anything into the box. So I googled how to fix it and then I came to this site (And thats how my profile was born) and found a fix nando4 had posted on another thread and it was the HP DMFIT Utility. It looked pretty cool so i downloaded it, but since I have minimum knowledge on the Utility and what not, I couldn't get it to work.

    So my question is, does anybody know how to work it, can someone give me a thorough tutorial on how to do so, or is there a simpler way of fixing this problem?

    Btw, I have tried taking out the CMOS battery for more than 6 hours.

    Contact an authorized service point, have proof of ownership ready. That's the best solution you can get here.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack scouts on fire off the shoulder of Well6. I watched sentryguns glitter in the dark near the 2fort4 gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
