IdeaPadY710 BIOS Password Forgotton Please help

Good  evening,


I purchased my Y710 IdeaPad in March 2008.. I set a BIOS password and now have removed the two internal 250 GB Hitachi 5400 disk drives and replaced them With Seagate Momentus dual 500 gig, 7200rpm hard disks.


I will be replacing the O/S with XP Pro , unfortunately  I stupidly forgot the BIOS password I set back then.. Can someone please help me out...


Thank you very much,
