8510W f10 setup password

How does one go about clearing or resetting the f10 password.
I can log in to the machine with domain creds, but the user who had this laptop set the f10 password, then left the company.

Morally this is a question that should not be answered on a forum such as this (and I hope that no-one does). Especially when your forum profile does not give a real name and your address is just 'USA", and there is no company name.
Laptops are often stolen and if they are BIOS password protected then it is done to protect sensitive data and to prevent the stolen computer from being ever used again.
I suggest that you contact your IT department in your company, or the manufacturer of the computer for advice.
