Reset or remove the BIOS password on my laptop

I want to reach a computer's BIOS settings, but the BIOS is password protected. I've lost the password.

Is there any way to remove or reset this password?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


There are several ways to reset it, but the easiest is to remove the CMOS battery to reset all settings. If you're not sure what the CMOS battery is, it looks like a larger version of a watch battery, or a button battery. If you post your motherboard specs, we could show you exactly where it is.

  • Thanks for your help, really the computer is not mine, I should ask my friend :) BTW I will try to find the CMOS battery myself, but if not I will come and post another comment ;) – Nofuzy Feb 9 '12 at 12:36
