PLEASE REPLACE UR MOTHER BOARD BATTERY. I GUESS UR BATTERY MODEL WILL BE CR3212... PLEASE CHAGE IT AND TRY IT AGAIN. NOT YOUR LAPTOPS BATTERY... THIS IS A BATTERY ON THE MOTHER BOARD. PLEASE TAKE IT TO UR NEAREST DEALER AND GET IT DONE.. PLEASE DO NOT OPEN IT WITH ANY KNOWLEDGE.

The only idea I have is to find and disconnect the CMOS back-up battery after removing main battery and unplugging the AC adapter. That SHOULD clear the bios completely, wiping out the password, the date, and everything else.
I know this works on desktops, and most laptops, but no promises, and the cmos battery may not be easy to access.
You should probably leave the battery unhooked for at least 1-2 minutes to be sure it clears.
Hope this is some assistance!

sources.."just remove or pick open the cmos battery (+3v) from the
main/mother board and resit/fit it again carefully"..
