    Hey, just bought myself a used one of these. Its state is somewhat miserable, but I really want to fix it. First off, how do I reset/remove the admin password in bios? I tried battery and cmos battery removal, but it didnt work. Help, please? :)

    Just tried it with a03 bios. While the flash worked, the setup menu is still locked down. Now when I try to flash the stock bios, it says this:

    Hey sverige.

    I'm from Danmark and twittered to their american support. I gave them the service tag and the lock code after 3 unsuccesful attempts. Then they were able to help me. Good luck with yours! :)
