There is a trick to resetting the BIOS password , but it requires you to open the laptop and get to the motherboard. Now I don't know your level of expertise in that field , but laptops can be very trick to pull apart and put back together...so if you are not comfortable doing it , please take it to a professional as I don't want to see you damage your laptop!

Back to resetting the password......you need to access the motherboard of the laptop....on the motherboard is a small circular battery (it is flat and silver)..... that needs to be disconnected from the motherboard to reset all the BIOS information...depending on the model of the laptop , you may be able to completely remove the battery from the clip it is in , or you may need to disconnect the wire running from the batter to motherboard. Below I have put some example pictures to make it clear.

Removing That Battery:

Disconnecting The Cable:



After disconnecting it/removing it place it back in/reconnect it , put the laptop back together and boot up....the password will be reset! Below is a picture just in case you have trouble finding the battery



If this post helped you please leave a rating, it is well appreciated, thanks!

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

SOURCE: forgot my bios password please help benny

There are a number of reasons why we might set a password to protect our BIOS from changes. The problem is that we only need to go in there once in a blue moon, making the password easy to forget, locking everyone out. I had a situation many years ago where a colleague suggested the purchase of a new motherboard because they couldn’t remember the password. I got that little bit more frustrated with my job that day.
There are various options you can use to get back into your BIOS. All of them reset the BIOS back to default values, so make sure you’ve tried all of your regular passwords before attempting these methods. I have tried to keep it brief…
Newer Computers: Most newer motherboards have a jumper on them, which you can change the position of to reset the BIOS. Find your motherboard manual or search for the motherboards model number in Google. You want to find a diagram showing what and where various components and jumpers are on the motherboard. The manual should tell you which jumper needs to be changed.
Once you have changed the jumper, return the jumper back to its original position while the machine is off. You don’t want it to keep resetting itself. Turn on the machine and go into the BIOS. All options will be open to you.
Older Computers: The quickest way to get into the BIOS of an older computer that has been password protected is to remove the battery. The battery keeps the system clock going. Once you remove it, you can put it back in and start the computer.
When you start your computer, you will find your BIOS has been reset to its default values. You are now able to change any settings you want.
General: Some motherboard manufacturers have a secret password that will work, overwriting the password already locking the computer. These are readily available online with a bit of a search. I think this is becoming less common with time.
For more information on the methods above, tech-faq has a great article which goes more in depth.

Too bad pal. Now open it and remove the button cell that is there on the motherboard. Insert it back after a minute or so. Re-assemble the laptop and remember never to give a password anywhere.
