Use the jumper pin to reset the bios or remove the cmos battery for 10 seconds.

You should now be able to get into the bios.

That will work on a desktop but doesn't work on a laptop/netbook. BIOS passwords are stored in an eeprom on a laptop instead of your normal eprom on a desktop. The extra e stands for electronically erasable programmable memory. Removing the power/battery doesn't erase them. They have to be reprogrammed/updated from the BIOS menu which means you have to know the password to change the password. Its an extra level of security in case its lost or stolen. There are ways around it but I don't believe we are allowed to discus them. Your best bet it to contact tech support at the manufacturer. If you can prove ownership they may help you fix it.
