Besides tacking off the cmos battery, what else can I do In order to reset my BIOS to default? ATM bios access is password protected and I don't know the password anymore.

On regular PC stations, there was a jumper, but where is that on a laptop mobo?

Do you know any other way of resetting the bios on a laptop?

Get your Fujitsu-Siemens and Acer bios master password here. They also do this for Dell, HP/Compaq, Samsung and Sony Just go to The Master Password will delete all Bios passwords giving you access to your locked computer again
