Yikes. You've set a password on the BIOS and don't remember it?
Well, most manufacturers set a "backdoor" password on the bios that will allow you to get in. It used to be the backdoor PW for IBM was "merlin" but that may no longer be the case. If you absolutely cannot get in, then your option is to open the case to the laptop and disconnect the CMOS battery for about 15 seconds and then reconnect it. That will clear the CMOS to the factory defaults.
I wish you well with this.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Take a look at this image, read the Had drive manual on how to set the jumper, Try cable select jumper settings, if not work, try the master settings, if not try the slave settings, one of the settings must go on and works fine.
Here where you can find the jumper settings,

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to boot
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
