you have to remove or unplug the cmos battery which is attached to the motherboard inside the laptop, doing this will clear all passwords. If the password clears replace the battery.
Here is some more usefull info if you want to this yourself>
The guts of the machine are usually under the keyboard. If you are okaywith opening up the laptop, you'll need to remove a few screws, thebattery and the hard drive, then carefully pry up the keyboard to gainaccess to the items that the manufacturers say you shouldn't tamperwith. If its just a matter of getting into the bios and theres apassword, you can usually simply remove the battery and leave itwithout power for at least 24hours, then it should reset....doesn'talways work but since most laptops actually do not have a standard cmosbattery, this would be one way to go about it. Of course you could justtry to figure out what the password is, someone has to have put it inthere so they should know what it is, or you could go to http://tcc.toughbook.com/ and get the bios update, which will reset it completely.

1 - Using a stack of DVD RW blank disks, or a large capacity USB Flash/Jump Drive, back up your Laptop computer completely. If necessary, Use WinZIP to ensue that everything has been compressed into the smallest capacity possible.
2 - When you are certain that you have backed up the drive completely, remove the older drive
3 - Line up the new drive and the old drive and ensure the jumpers are set to the same settings as they were set on the older HDD.
4 - Once you are sure, you then restore everything from the back-up drive for the old hdd to the new disk drive.
5 - Test to ensure that everything from the old drive has been backed up from the old drive to the new drive.
6 - If you are comfortable that your backup has been completly restored from the backup meda to the new, larger hard drive, then be certain that you have restored from the older drive to the new drive, tighten all screws and cables, then close all ports and ensure that everything has been done properly by and for you.
7 - Be certain that you have created the same user accounts in the new drive as you had on the older drive.
8 - Now, power off the new drive while in the laptop. Wait about 30 seconds to one minute, then restart the new hard disk drive.
9 Test everything, to be sure that everything works properly. Go through everything from the top of the menu to the bottom of the menu. Try all accessories, try all applications. Ensure that all works right and that the applications work as they used to work, when it was on the old drive.
10 - Remember, you have a warranty on the new HDD, so be sure that you have tested everything to ensure that it all works properly, before you sign off on this new drive.
11 - Once you are certain that it all works correctly, you can then be sure that it is working properly and competely, because only you know if things are working correctly as they should be.
12 - Then you can sign off and you can be sure that things work properly.
13 - As carpenters say ... measure twice; cut once. You can only do this one time, so if you measure it more than one tim, you can be certain that you will get it done correctly and be happy that you did it right. from beginning to end.
Have fun. Don't be too serious about it, but do be careful, and get it right. Remember, get it right the first time, and you will be pleased with the results at the end.
