lenovo z500 BIOS password problem

Hello! my problem started when i done a bios update installation. I already use a BIOS password. I do it but functions buttons be default and i cant Work with it.Unfortunately, during the update has been damaged password . I gave the computer to the servis but they told me that "they are there they can not remove the BIOS password". is really the only way out of my situation is replacing the entire motherboard and not the only one holding my password? Its a very problem for me but my hdd crash and for now i cant install any operation system.

MB replacement is one option. Another is to have your bios reverse engineered (mod your bios). Reverse engineering is not allowed in the forum but there are other forum which deal with it so just use google to find them if you want.

The official Lenovo position is that the mainboard will need to be replaced.  If the system has warranty this should cover it under normal circumstance, proof of purchase / ownership may be required.
