I beleive you can remove the BIOs password by taking out the battery from the motherboard and leaving it out for a few minutes, opening a laptop is a fairly tricky thing to do and I am not 100% positive about the battery thing.

If its a laptop made after 2002, chances are youll have to send it back and get a new one. This was a security feature implemented in late 2002 where laptops cmos could not be reset because of the chances of it being stolen.

On most laptops there is a Reset button. It is very small set back in a small hole in the case. Remove the main laptop battery and depress the reset button for one minute should reset the BIOS along with the password.

Acklan is right. The reset "hole" can be found on the bottom of your laptop. I want to think that if you are looking at the front of the laptop and rotate it upward, the hole is on the mid right side on the bottom of the laptop. Use a paperclip to hold the switch in. Just be gentle!
