How can I get into a password locked computer I bought from a military sale?

Episode 917 (2:20:21)

James from New Jersey

Bob bought a computer from a military sale and he can't get it to run because of a password authentication issue. Leo says that there's a password in the BIOS which prevents someone from turning the computer on. That's not surprising, considering it's a military computer. One thing he can try is removing the lithium ion battery that will power the bios. Or he may have to reset jumpers. Considering the military had it, James may be out of luck cracking that password.
