I had the same problem, muchos gracias! The hardest part is removing the piece of plastic. I jammed the tip of a very small flat headed screwdriver underneath the black edge facing the keyboard, directly beyond the F1-F12 keys. There are 5 clips along that edge, you need to make them click out. There are no clips along the side or back edges. The black plastic covering the screen hinges are part of the same piece of plastic, and these each have one clip on them, so after all 5 (evenly spread) clips along the front edge have come out, tilt your screen back its full extent - on my laptop, it goes flat, and then tilt the plastic front edge of the plastic up a few degrees; a little less than a 35 degree angle, and then whilst keeping that front edge at the same distance away from the computer; not without lowering it more than perhaps a little, put your fingers underneath and gently lift the back edge and the hinges away from the computer, be gentle as the clips on the hinges are the same thin clips you can now see along the front edge.
Once you have removed this, undo the two screws, and do not unplug the keyboard - it's not too difficult to plug back in, but adds unnecessary work. To remove the small card under which the C88 solder points may be found, pull the silver metal clip that is holding it in left, away from the board. I did this with a flat headed screwdriver again, but that's unnecessarily brutish. Do not remove the two wires, you won't be able to re-attach them without a little solder (or I suppose, cellotape!). Under the board you will find two neat rectangle blobs of solder, and just to make doubly sure, they're labelled C88 just above them, but as they're the only solder points in sight it's quite obvious :).
Thanks very much for this solution Rochelle (I won't say r0chelle; I assume the name you wanted was already taken!).

This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
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
