    With the proof of purchase for laptop and Windows in hand, have your friend take it to a business-oriented local computer fix-it place. The onsite tech probably can do in minutes what would take you and your friend, and us helping with posts, an hour or more.

    You have already been given the information you need, Today's laptops require more that removing the batteries to remove a security password

    please do as stated above or contact ASUS who may be able to suggest a technician local to you
