This video shows you how to get into an Eee PC and to the BIOS battery (Might not be your exact model but it should be similar.)
Pull the battery shown for approx 5 mins (30secs is generally sufficient but better safe than sorry.) Replace the battery, reassemble the machine, and boot it up again. With any luck it should be cleared and will boot normally!

Give this a try, just in case: When you turn on the Netbook, it starts, usually, with a black screen booting the Bios and then it starts the Windows OS. During the black screen, it probably says to press - F2, F8 or some other key combinations to get into "setup" mode. See if there is a "disable password..." in the menu item of you setup mode...and disable it. Just try...let me know if this works...Thnx
Step 1Turn on your laptop. Press the "F2" key when the first loading screen appears. This will load the BIOS. You'll only have a second or two to press this key before Windows begins to boot. If you're not fast enough and the Windows screen comes up, simply restart and try again. Step 2Use the right-arrow key to highlight the "Security" tab. This is the third tab from the right. Step 3Press the down-arrow to enter the Security Settings menu. Scroll down to "User Password," listed beneath the "HDD/SSD Password Select." This will open a pop-up window with three text fields. Step 4Type your current password into the "Current Password" field. Press "Enter." Type your new password into the "New Password" field and press "Enter." Type the same password again into the "Confirm New Password" field and press "Enter." The "Password" window will close. Step 5Press the "F10" key to save your new settings and exit the BIOS. Your laptop will now boot normally. TipHDD password can be changed as many times as necessary. However, once you enable password protection, you can never delete it.
Restart your computer..start tapping F8 quickly..if you reaches advance boot menu..there select repair my computer..then select the language..then enter your username and password if you use any..in recovery options you can try startup repair or system restore options..lastly if nothing works then select the factory image restore which will take your computer to factory settings but delete everything
try F2 you didnt say whether it was set in the bios or in the initial configuration pages. However a F9 whilst booting takes you to restore the factory settings(every other boot) goto restore factory settings--press "E"-- choose restore image--press "B"-- then try to reconfigure the first few pages of the initialising programs,date,time,location etc.
