Answers :

I cannot be sure because i have never seen inside this type of computer, but it should be the same as any other.
on a normal motherboard there are 2 ways to reset the BIOS, the first of these is to remove and then replace the cmos jumper. the second is to remove the cmos batterry wait 5-10 minutes and then put it back into its slot.
i prefer the second method as it is easier and removes the confusion and mess of jumpers.
once the case of your computer is off the cmos batterry should be easy to see, it looks like a watch batterry and is about the size of a 10 cent peice. normally you will require a small flat head screew driver to remove the batterry
