    try looking up the MANUAL of your laptop model. there should be something in the manual that says to REMOVE a jumper on the motherboard to reset BIOS password.

    hi...

    If u r quite expert about opening the laptop..u can try it..
    Open ur laptop..look for a tablet like battery called 'c-mos'..
    Remove and reinstall it..
    It will reset the bios settings..
    And the password will be removed...
    Thank u...
