hi, u will either have to find the bios reset jumper and remove it for a few minutes or remove the battery but that could take a day or so before it is discharge.

Twenty minutes. Pulling the battery will take twenty minutes on average (give or take ten minutes) and switching the jumper will take 30-45 secs, then put it back the way it was.
