That's a problem that will require some technical knowhow about how to open the casing of your laptop and access the hardware.

if ever you are not able to do so then contact a technician.

you will need to remove the cmos battery for approx 25sec
Then replace the battery.
Mount your system unit and try it out.

I forgot my coms adminitrator password and wonderd if anyone couls send me the unlock numbers for me ? My code numbers are FQLX8C1-595B

Hi Doug Cleland!, if you JUST want to clear your BIOS password because you forgot it and cant login on your PC / cannot book if you set a bios pass before boot it is quite simple ;-))

on the motherboard is a small metal batteire (looks like a button)!
just carefully remove the battery, unplug the powercord from the motherboard and from the PC end! wait 10minutes and before you do wait also press the POWER ON button -> this will remove the Rest voltage from your motherboard. after like 10mins you should put in back the battery then reconnect all power cables and just turn it on and i will be sure that the BIOS password is deleted because your pc STARTS with DEFAULT settings (is no pass set)
Rgds, Chris
