The only way to obtain the response for the challenge code is to send your unit to an authorized repair facility. I work at the depot repair facility in Lou.Ky. And we have to send a request to Japan or California to get the response code.

If you can't find the jumper to flash the BIOS or if such jumper
doesn't exist, you can remove the battery that keeps the BIOS memory
alive. It's a button-size battery somewhere on the motherboard (on
elder computers the battery could be a small, typically blue, cylinder
soldered to the motherboard, but usually has a jumper on its side to
disconnect it, otherwise you'll have to unsolder it and then solder it
back). Take it away for 15-30 minutes or more, then put it back and the
data contained into the BIOS memory should be volatilized. I'd suggest
you to remove it for about one hour to be sure, because if you put it
back when the data aren't erased yet you'll have to wait more time, as
you've never removed it. If at first it doesn't work, try to remove the
Important note: in laptop and notebooks you don't have to remove the computer's power batteries (which would be useless), but you should open your computer and remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard.
