    Try out the Removing the battery section. If you are unable to get into the system after booting then also you have quite a few options left.

    The battery of the motherboard. That powers the clock in the machine.

    That does mean it has a backup of that battery and you need to be completely removing the power in the mother board to reset the password. If you read that article there are other options as well but that can be a bit risky.

    I have to similar laptop one completely broken on broken I have searched in an out top to bottom no sign of backup battery.
    I think I have to re-read the document and look for the risky options.
