Question about Medion MD-40954 Notebook
Hello, I have a MID2020 Medion Laptop, I have forgotten the startup (BIOS) password, therefore I CANNOT use the laptop at all. I have read that I can erase the password by removing the CMOS battery for about 30 minutes, or by using jumpers or DIP switches somewhere within my laptop. I would rather do this myself rather than taking it to a repair shop. So I ask you, can you help me find the location of any of these on my laptop; the CMOS battery, DIP switch or Jumpers? Preferably the battery.
THE CMOS BATTERY IS ON THE MOTHERBOARD,I HAD TO COMPLETELY TAKE APART MY LAPTOP..I LEFT IT OUT FOR 30 MINS ..PUT IT BACK TOGETHER BUT IT STILL ASKED FOR PASSWORD...TRYING AGAIN AND WILL LEAVE BATTERY OUT 24 HOURS.bE CAREFUL IF U TAKE IT APART AS IT IS NOT EASY.CONTACT ME IF YOU LIKE I'LL HELP IF I CAN. firstname.lastname@example.org

Remove both batteries the usable battery and the CMOS battery for about 15 minutes and then reinstall you should be good to go.
The battery should be under the memory sticks if not one of the campartments in the back of laptop should be able to access it. phillips screwdirver is all you should need.
