Answers :

If you can't find the jumper, just remove the CMOS battery wait for 1/2 + hour and the re-insert the battery. This will reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you then need to set the Time & Date.
\015\012It may not remove the BIOS password if the laptop stores the password on an EEPROM chip.
