\015\012Getting around the Laptop BIOS password is tricker then the desktop...I don't know if your system would go passed POST or not...in either case, there are few software out there that would allow you to clear the bios.....but you need to do some reading first...

You can only remove the BIOS password by using the correct password to get into the BIOS. The BIOS password is stored on an EEPROM chip and there are no backdoor passwords avilable and removing the BIOS battery will not bypass/remove the password.
\015\012IBM/Lenovo support states only a replacement motherboard will solve this problem.
