Re: CAN OPEN MY PC
I'm not sure if you are physically trying to close your pc, or if you have only set a BIOS password, have forgot it, and need to reset it. If you have forgotten the BIOS password, you will need to reset the CMOS (BIOS) in order to access the BIOS and change your boot order.
Please provide the make and model of your PC, and I will post instructions on how to reset the password :)

If you don't know the BIOS password, and need to access it - you'll have to
unplug the AC power then open the case and remove the lithium "coin" or "button" battery from the
motherboard. Wait 5 - 10 minutes (allows the capacitors to discharge) and replace the battery. This will RESET all BIOS values to default.
Restore AC power reboot. Enter the BIOS and change the values as desired. To access the BIOS, Press the F2 function key repeatedly during boot sequence. You may need to plug the USB keyboard into a different USB port if it doesn't let you in to the BIOS page.
I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.
Your BIOS is more than likely locked by an admin password or the options are locked upon startup. The best way to go around that is once you see the HP screen popup after restart, keep hitting F12 and the boot menu will pop up gving you access to the boot menu and then to the BIOS. If you have a password setup on the BIOS you will need it for any BIOS changes you make to take effect.
The mother board has a battery if thats the one you took out you reset the bios, Try pressing the delete simutanuosanly after turning on the computer then in the bios goto boot device priority and select your hard drive press f10 which is the save and exit. Try turning on your pc again and see if it boots off the hard drive make sure you give the computer time to re-boot itself after you change the setting in the bios.
The only way to clear a BIOS password is to open the case and look for the CMOS battery on the motherboard. Small battery looks like a watch battery. Take it out, wait five minutes, put it back in and start. Password will be cleared.
Is it like when you turn on your computer it asks you for a BIOS password.
You need to open the notebook from the back and locate the small battery which looks like the shape of coin,
After locating it take that battery out and turn on your computer,
Once your computer is fully loaded then turn if Off,
Then put the battery back and turn on your computer
Try to go into BIOS.
I am sure you will be able to go into BIOS.
did you set the password from the bios settings? if so, reset your bios by opening your pc casing (be sure that its unplugged) locate the bios reset jumper (mostly found near the battery cell in the motherboard) take out the plastic jumper from pins 1 and 2 and set it to pins 2 and 3 and wait for about 10 seconds then put it back to its original settings ( 1 and 2 ). close your casing and start your pc
