To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD from here and burn it on a disc: http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
Upon start up you will get a menu similar to this one:

Under advanced boot options boot from the one that suits your operatin system (XP or Vista or Windows 7). If it loads it means the bootmgr is corrupt, you can try to repair it with the Windows installation disc, instead of Install choose Repair.

Now, regarding the BIOS password, you will have to select Dos Boot CD and go to BIOS/CMOS menu and run Kill CMOS to wipe the BIOS completely or there are some utilities there that can reset just password. There re some other options too for reseting the password that you can read about here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7229632-reset_or_remove_bios_password

The only way to reset the bios password is to remove the cmos, in order to do this you need to strip the laptop and the cmos battery is located on the motherbored you need to remove this for a few minutes,
if you not sure then take it to a specialist or look for a manual on line
