    I d'ont know if this will work on a laptop but it does work occasionally on a tower system.
    Remove the battery from the motherboard and swop over the jumpers (you will need the motherboard manual for this to find out which ones)for about 3 seconds and swop them back.
    This should reset the bios to its default settings, if you hav'nt got the manual try the m.board manafacturers website.
    Good luck.

    P.S after you've swapped the jumpers back put the battery back in.
    Sorry.
