Answers :

Unplug the AC adapter from the computer. Remove the battery from the computer. Open the display 180 degrees until it lies flat on your work surface. With a small screwdriver, gently pry up the right-hand side of the hinge cover. Gently remove the hinge cover moving from right to left. Remove the 2 screws at the top of the keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and hold it up and slightly forward so you can access the keyboard connector. Lift the latch on the connector and slide the cable out. Use a small screwdriver to remove the coin-cell battery. Wait a minute or so and replace the battery, keyboard, and hinge cover by reversing the removal process. Your BIOS password should now be cleared.
