What they told you is correct. There is no way to remove the supervisor password without remembering it. There is no "backdoor" password. Discussuions of bypassing security are not allowed.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a satisfying answer, although apparently, you can get this problem resolved. This is from Page 40 of the P70 Hardware Maintenance Manual:
A supervisor password protects the system information stored in the ThinkPad Setup. The user must enter the supervisor password in order to get access to the ThinkPad Setup and change the system configuration.
Attention: If the supervisor password has been forgotten and cannot be made available to the service
technician, there is no service procedure to reset the password. The system board must be replaced for
a scheduled fee."
