Bios when you start up

Answers :

You need to remove the battery from the mother board. There is a small battery, like a watch battery, on the mother board, but it is not an easy task getting to it..

You'll probably need to download instructions for taking the laptop apart.

When you find the battery, remove it for an hour or so. Put it back in and reassemble. The password will be gone.
