    Can you do a factory re-image?

    That way you should get to choose the password yourself.

    They don't always require a CD, in fact most don't these days - it's a key press during the BIOS / POST screen.

    Could be worth a check.

    No, but you can reset it with a little linux utility - chntpw.
    It's included in quite a few distro's by default, can't remember offhand but google will tell you.
    Find one, get unetbootin to create a bootable flashdrive, away you go ...
