Well, you can try to open up the laptop's case and clear the BIOS password by removing the shunt for a few seconds and then putting it back.

I'm sure you can Google what a motherboard shunt looks like and most times on the hardware it will have a label on the motherboard exactly which switch to remove the shunt from to reset the BIOS password.
