Ask your son for the password, then change it.

Thats of course if it was your sons

If you cannot get the password (??), try removing the battery and leaving it unplugged for at least a week.
This should drain the internal battery and lose all bios passwords, enabling a clean start. Wether the machine will start again with a working Bios-- Your guess is a good as mine.

You could also try typing in Google 'Clear Bios Password'

However any instructions are at your own risk
