I don't know what you mean by loop back method.

Pulling the CMOS battery is the primary way to clear the password, if possible. The only other way I know of is to (if you have a phoenix BIOS) to use a recovery disk for phoenix BIOSs that will erase such a password.

Other than that, it can't be done...for all practical purposes.

I don't know where everyone is getting all these notebooks with passwords already on them...this seems to be a suddenly common problem.
