Sounds like you tried this, but it's worth a shot again. Remove the CMOS battery on the motherboard and let the laptop sit for an hour, then replace the battery with a new one.
If the only real issue is changing the time and date, you can do this in Windows and it will reset the BIOS clock, too, of course.
If the problem is that the time and date keep reseting, you either have a low CMOS battery or a short on the motherboard that is resetting it.
If all else fails, you might need to flash the BIOS from a floppy disk with the latest BIOS version for your machine to reset it and go from there.
PS: BIOS reset problems on laptops are sometimes due to power problems caused by battery packs going bad; check your battery pack, too, and see if it is working okay.

You will need to reset the router. On the back of the router hold down the reset button for 30 seconds release the button and then wait for the power light to stop blinking. If it doesnt stop blinking within 1 minute unplug and wait 30 seconds plug back in and the router will be reset

One method of gaining access to the system is by trying hard to remember the forgotten password, or a password of another user which has the same level of administrative rights. However I don't think this approach will help you, otherwise you wouldn't be sitting here reading article, would you?
Another method is by trying to restore a backed up System State in which you do remember the password. The problem with doing so is that you'll probably lose all of the recently add users and groups, and all the changed passwords for all of your users since the last backup was made.
There are other free programs you can use but they can be dangerous so be careful of losing your data!
Hope this helps you solve your problem!
