I password protected my bios and don't know how to know how to remove it so i was going to remove the cmos battery

Answers :

Removing the battery will not make a difference, it wil remove the system clock but he bios runs on non-volatile memory (memory that runs without power so you will not lose the password. Due to security reasons and without legitamate proof, i cannot tell you how to remove the password as the computer may have been stolen. let me know if you have proof, and i will TRY to help you.
