Cannot boot laptop because of bios password


Easiest way to wipe clean the Bios password is as follows:
  • Perform a power drain by removing laptop battery pack and/or docking station power supply and hold power button down for 10 seconds
  • Locate the CMOS battery (usually under the smallest panel on the bottom of the laptop)
  • Remove CMOS battery for 20 minutes (20 is arbitrary can wait longer if you wish)
  • Replace CMOS battery and panel
  • Replace battery pack and/or replace to docking station
  • Power up
The Bios password should now be removed and you should be able to boot with no issues. Thank you for using Fixya and please remember to return to rate this answer.

Need to change battery as date is wrong


For that first open your cpu cabinet then check on motherbord chipset you can find 1 CMOS cell .
It is round cell which gives voltage to your bios for remember settings.
Then pull it and purchase cmos cell from nearest computer shop then put that new cmos cell in it's position on motherbord.
Then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" then you can see bios settings screen.
Set your time and date then save settings and exit.

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.
