I didn't say anything about a password. I finally sorted it myself tho.
If I remember correctly this is how I done it.

I restored all bios to defaults, enabled the CMS mode and restarted I think then it went back into BIOS, so I did same again but then enabled the second option that is also part of CMS once that gets enabled saved it and it eventually came out of BIOS.

I can't say this is exactly what I did but was around these lines. It worked fine for me, I did have to reinstall Windows 8 after it due to hard drive being knackered.

Thank you for your help tho Jarotech. :)

This is a follow up question, not an answer. Got the same problem, only my bios wont accept enabling cms.. Tried all other possibilities. Updating the bios wont work either, cause it for some stupid reason needs 20% battery, and my battery is dead and gone. Any suggestions Will be very much appretiated!

After trying all, I decided to physically open up the laptop... The Hard drive was displaced. Fixing it properly solved the problem.
 


You did not answer his question, we keep the answers in the thread for all people to benefit from it. Also the OP has solved his problem itself, and you are more than one year late.
