    There is a "jumper" onboard (two triangle pads) for password clearing. It possibly can be reached without full disassembling, just removing keyboard and disconnecting touchpad's flat cable may be enough.

    From the Service Manual:

    Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check
    If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
    the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
    necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
    following steps:
    • Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.
    • Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.
    • Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
    • Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
    system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.
    • Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
    • If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
    try again.
    NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).
