You can't just bypass it. You have to disassemble it and take out the Bios battery (big as a coin and shiny you can't miss it) and you must leave it out for 1 or 2 minutes then put it back and put the pieces back toghether. Turn it on and see if it asks for password. If it still does, well.....search the internet for some tips & tricks. I just gave you a basic solution for that problem.

They ahve some links here to freeware programs and/or the older dosbox setup that will allow you to retreive the bios password. Might check it out and try what they suggest.

I had this problem on an E6400 I purchased from eBay. Ugly. I could boot the machine into Windows 7 without any issues. However, the BIOS was locked. I contacted the folks and Mastermind IT and paid them $20.00 via PayPal. Within minutes they sent me a "master" password that unlocked the machine. It worked and I can change the BIOS now.

Note that I submitted the form at 11:00 PM on a Friday night. The service might be a bot though.
