Old unit which has not been used for 6 months will not boot without a password? Unable to by pass using F keys. Any ideas?

BIOS or Windows password?

Windows passwords are a non-issue, non-event, no-cost issue. I use NTPASSWD for that.

The BIOS password can be tricky. Given no model number I can't check to see if there are resets you can do.

Yeah, sticky might be the word, cmos reset, maybe, ram removal replace, uhhhh not likely. Methinks he needs the disk(s) as you said, since it is a laptop it can be a challenge for sure,
