As this is a laptop, our options are very limited. I couldnt find much information about it. However, you may flash BIOS by using below link.

Hope this helps. I am sorry for not being of much help here.

You will have to download the BIOS file and burn it on a bootable disc and update it. I know its a lengthy process but thats the only solution apart from taking your laptop apart and reset it manually.

Hope this helps.
