      If you are sure the system needs the BIOS password and not the login password, it can be reset by removing the CMOS battery (looks like a coin) and reseating it after a few seconds.
      Press and hold the power button down for about 10 seconds before you open it. Make sure the netbook is not plugged in and get a technician to help you if required.
