Manufacturers used to have backdoor passwords or allowed you to reset the password by popping out the CMOS battery. Because of theft, they have designed laptops to be a little more resilient. Your laptop is quite modern, so the only way you can reset it is by replacing the motherboard, unfortunately.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth

to remove a bios password on a laptop you have to remove the battery and short a certain chipset (like the 3rd prong one to the 6th one) in it with a paper clip. it's too much trouble.
