The bios password ***** not be on a label. Unfortunately, if even possible, the internal CMOS battery would need to be removed to reset the bios password.

The battery is the internal battery inside the laptop. Is that the one you removed? It is not the battery that gets charged to run the laptop.
It is an internal battery that controls the Bio, the realtime clock. It is the CMOS battery. It would require dismantling of the laptop by a technician. There is no guarantee that it would reset it, but it does in some computers.
Unfortunately, There is no other solution. That is the purpose of the security, so it cannot be easily circumvented. Why is it locked?
I would remove the internal battery and see if that works. Otherwise, the laptop is not usable unless you get a whole new motherboard.
No, that is not correct. Also, why is it locked?
Bot***** *****ne. I know you don't like the answer, but there is no unlock code. You either know the code, have a tech pull the battery out and see if that clears it, or get a new motherboard/ laptop. I am sorry, but that is the reality. I wish there was a magic code that could be provided. You can read all kinds of things online about unlock codes, etc., but they are not true.
This is standard for computer bios. Most people don't even know the bios exists and they certainly don't set a password ***** it. In other cases, they are used to prevent theft or activated to lock out thieves. Just reply if you have any further questions. Otherwise, please ignore the automated offers and messages and don't reply. Then your question will close automatically.
You are very welcome. it is my pleasure to assist you.
