    2.00 GHz Cel. Hey?

    Nope, I have no idea what you mean?

    The password for a zip file? (maybe not!)

    Computer, like a Macintosh (Hope not, I hate Macs)

    Anyway, the heading helped.

    For Laptops see:
    HP / Dell / etc. Laptop password help (April - June 2008)

    For Desktops:
    Try reset Bios from the main board (usually jumper on Maniboard)
    Try clrcmos for clearing out cmos passwords
    How to use
    Boot to DOS. (using a bootable floppy or CD containing CLRCMOS.
    Type clrcmos on the command line and press enter
    Works on 99 % of computers
    Or contact your computer manufacture for an unlock key

    I should have stated to put your specs in your Profile (also answering Yes in there as well)
