SOURCE: How to reset bios password
The FSC 1320D's are truely remarkable... We haev had a default BIOS password for our laptops for a while now, but it has recently started to have been guessed or found out. So of course, they needed to be changed. And suprisingly enough, the FSC 1320D will not allow you to reset the BIOS password through ANY user method so far, and we really have tried everything.
Removing the BIOS battery - This does nothing, at the best of times the system will display an error saying it has been removed but other than that the BIOS password remains.
Updating the BIOS - Most people would suspect that if you update the BIOS it compeltely refreshes the set system settings, including the BIOS password. This again, is not the case with this model, as every attempt at updating the BIOS so far has been deemed useless.
BIOS Corruption - This again, does not work. It leaves the system in a dead state, usually the BIOS resets. This has occured once, as during boot we noticed the options to scan memory had changed and it took longer, but the BIOS password remained.
Backdoor Passwords - Again, do not work. We have tried the entire list submitted by Ekse.
Reset VIA Software - There are some hacking programs out there which reset the BIOS through the Operating System. And i think we can all guess what im about to say... They don't work. It may just be for this model, as i've not tried them on others, but the BIOS password for the FSC 1320D does not get reset using this applications.
So, the verdict?
Apparently you can submit your laptop back to Fujitsu Siemens for an 'Out of warranty repair', and they will reset it for you. Assumingly by changing the BIOS chip completely. The only downside to this is that it can cost anything from £50 - £150 depending on service charges and delivery costs. My opinion, wasting time on a laptop that is past its sell-by date like the FSC 1320D is really not something you want to be doing. Buy a new laptop and sell the 1320D for spare parts.

Take out the battery for longer. It seemed to reset by indication of checksum error, but for an odd reason its still passworded. Remove battery and this time short the battery contacts on the motherboard and make sure no power or battery is in the machine. Then replace the battery and give it a shot.
