Question about Computers & Internet
I think you might need to get help from any expert to unscrew your laptop to access the jumper for resetting your bios.

Normally this can be done by removing your CMOS battery and shorting the CMOS with a jumper. This wipes out the stored into including the BIOS password. Unfortunately this may not be the correct procedure for your laptop. Every manufacturer has their own way of doing this. You can get the info either from your local warranty depot or from the manufacturer.

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard.
If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.
On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove.
If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password.
If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.
If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.
