    yes but you need to generate a # key(hash) look at this info copied from an expert below then if you get the key post it here

    info: Some vendors have implemented obfuscation measures to hide the hash from the end user - for instance, some FSI laptops require you to enter three special passwords for the hash to show up (see other post). HP/Compaq laptops only show the hash if the F2 or F12 key has been pressed prior to entering an invalid password for the last time.

    yes thats the #key.
    I need to find the key generator I am going out now but when back will check it out for you

    sorry bud cant get the executable key generator to work its `Dogberts` dowloaded it but there seems a problem perhaps one of the guys here can generate it for you if they read this.

    managed to get a key see if it works

    key : pzqcd
