Head,
Shut down your machine.  Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter.  Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.  Reinstall the battery and reconnect the power adapter if desired.  This process does the same as pulling the CMOS battery.  When you boot up, you should be told to press f2 to go into BIOS or f1 (or something) to load default values.  Select F2 and go into your BIOS.  Go where the password is set and reset the password to blank or a space.  Press F10 to save your BIOS. 

This SHOULD work.
Let us know.
Best Regards,
DrZ
