Current dump of BIOS will not help.
You need to read Security EEPROM (USROM1) by hardware programmer. E.g. CH341A and SOIC8-clip.
BTW: How much new motherboard is cost?

I don't know exactly how much it cost - i just ask question on community forum.
where can i get one of E.g. CH341A and SOIC8-clip? and  how much i cost me?
if I buy and read the Security EEPROM with what ever programmer WILL I COULD wipe SU PASSWORD without and damage?
IS THERE a guarantee?
and how can i find EEPROM on my motherboard? i mean how can i locate them?

Too many questions. I think you can't do it.
Go to service.

It's the smaller chip next to the 2 bios chips. It says something like "L01 8" (do not remember) Pretty much exactly under the buttom cover for the HDD.
So would have to disassembly the whole device to get next to the chip (if I remember right).
