You have to remove the two screws in the Back and then once the screws are out slide the cover back and off, Does that work for you? Let me know if not and I'll send you a how to for the model of yours

Open up your computer case. You need physical access to the motherboard to complete this procedure
Find a circular, (mostly) silver metallic object on the motherboard. This is the CMOS battery
CAREFULLY remove the CMOS battery, avoid touching it with your fingers, and leave it out for about 120 seconds. This will flush the CMOS memory which stores the BIOS password and all other configuration. (See Warnings)
Set the battery back into place and power on the computer
The computer should then warn you that the CMOS configuration could not be found. You can either reconfigure it yourself or restore defaults. Restoring the default configuration should be fine.
You will notice that the BIOS password has been cleared and you can boot without it. You may reset the BIOS password to something else by going into the BIOS configuration and setting a new User Password (The Supervisor Password controls access to the BIOS, NOT the computer!)
Hope this helps
