Answers :

Remove the l-ion RTC battery from your motherboard, wait about 5 minnutes and replace it. Turn the computer back on using only AC power DO NOT put the laptop battery in. This will reset the CMOS.
\015\012You can also try removing your laptop battery and pressing the on/off button for about 5 minutes, and putting the battery back in. This only works in some instances.
\015\012Neither of these solutions are guaranteed to clear a poweron password, you may need to contact your distributer or manufacturer.
Restart the computer in safe mode
