ok now i've tried many things, the main reason i need to access BIOS is because, of new Windows installation.
I've tried so far generating, the code, after 3 times password writing failure. there is no code after the fail :/ it just locks up, and i need to restart. i've tried opening the whole laptop, and locating the EEPROM i cannot seem to find it. found susceptible chips like JCmos1 "very small one" and USROM, no chip just 6 metal bits where chip could be soldered. but still no luck finding the EEPROM, i also found the whole BIOS chip, marked "winboard"... etc. but i need to short that EEPROM, please help me find the EEPROM guys.
i've also taken out the hard drive, and put it in my other desktop, and installed new windows 10, trying to bypass the situation. but when i opened the laptop, and tried taking out MB batttery, the BIOS DATE got resetted, and now i'm locked from accessing the new installed windows 10 GREAT!
SOO is there any solution to this bios password problem? i need to remove it, i do not want to replace the whole MB, it's too expensive.

The EEPROM on newer models (since T440/L440 etc.) is completely different from previous chips.
Any previous solutions that you may have found, are no longer possible.
Apart from that, this Forum does NOT allow to discuss such a password removal.

for obvious reasons it would not be a good idea..
it would only make profiting from theft easier..
have you thought about WHY you can not enter the bios password..?
if YOU set it then wait a day, clear your mind and try to remember it..
otherwise this is a tough thing..
