Hello mary54;

I think your laptop is old enough that you can clear the BIOS password by removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes.

On your model the RTC (CMOS) battery should be next to the WiFi card.
It should have the red and black wires shown in the photo.
You can just unplug the battery and wait 5 minutes for the CMOS chip to lose the BIOS password setting.
If you don't see the battery next to the WiFi card look under the dial up modem.
