Question about Computers & Internet
I guess the only way to get access would be activating Safe Mode from the Bios Mode.
I think it's holding F4, if not F7 from the start of Windows.
It shall then give you a selection of options.
Choose Safe Mode & hope for the best :)
But then once logged in I am not quite sure if you'd be able to change the supervisor password from Safe Mode.

Tips for a great answer:
As many as two passwords may be needed for any Lenovo IdeaPad computer: the power-on password (POP) and the supervisor password (SVP). If any of these passwords has been set, a prompt for it appears on the screen whenever the computer is turned on. The computer does not start until the password is entered.
Exception: If only an SVP is installed, the password prompt does not appear when the operating system is booted.
A power-on password (POP) protects the system from being powered on by an unauthorized person. The password must be entered before an operating system can be booted.
A supervisor password (SVP) protects the system information stored in the BIOS Setup Utility. The user must enter the SVP in order to get access to the BIOS Setup Utility and change the system configuration.
Attention: If the SVP has been forgotten and cannot be made available to the servicer, there is no service procedure to reset the password. The system board must be replaced for a scheduled fee.
Sorry hope this helps a little good luck
