Samsung support can help you out with the given information to reset the BIOS password. It might require proof of purchase to prevent stolen devices to be unlocked and they also may charge a fee for resetting the password.

You can't remove the password, without knowing it !   -->  ( what good is a password that can be "repaired" ?)
modern laptops keep it in a security chip - for anti-theft reasons
resetting the bios does not help;  nor does removing the battery, since the password is not in there
you would need to know in what chip it is, and how to reset that
you have to turn it in to the manufacturer, and show proof of ownership - then they can help
or replace the mobo !

**passwords are intended to be remembered -not forgotten!

EE has an article on this topic which may clear up the situation a bit.

In general, for a "recent" laptop -- one made in the last 5 years -- this issue has to go to the manufacturer due to the use of the Trusted Platform Module.  In this particular case, since the system appears to be providing a "challenge hash" Samsung will probably be able to sell you a one-time recovery password if you can prove that you own the system.

Nothing I can add for an answer because the question is answered as well as it's going to be. All I can add is a bit of advice: Don't use a BIOS password unless one is needed; and when one is used, save a copy somewhere reasonable. It should never be necessary to ask for help in remembering one (except manufacturer support).

BIOS passwords are very rarely needed for personal/home systems. If recovery procedures aren't known ahead of time, it's almost certain that a BIOS password shouldn't be used.
