    Hello @Compdumb,

    Welcome to TenForums!

    I would suggest that you contact the lady and ask her for the password.

    Sounds like you are the recipient of stolen goods. All of our work laptops have this feature where it locks the BIOS and hard disk remotely if stolen, misplaced, or after a certain number of failed access attempts to the data on the disk without the TPM key.

    I would suggest returning it to wherever you bought or got it.
