First you need to take the cover off your laptop and locate the cmos battery which looks like an oversize battery watch. With everything unplugged it just pulls out, note which side of the battery goes however. Place the new one in put everything back together and power the computer up. When it powers up it will finally get to the screen that says press "F1" for setup or "F2" to continue. Press F1 and you will get to your set up screen. You can go through each screen and select F5 which is the default factory settings or scoll across the top to the last screen which will give you the option of resetting all the settings to factory default with just pressing one of the F keys once only. Once you do that, just shutdown your computer and restart and it will start as normal. It may go through the F1 and F2 screen one more time but just press F2 and continue. After you log off the next time all your changes should be good. Let me know if I can help you in any other way.

Hi, I have NEC Versa E6300 laptop. I had set its BIOS password long back but forgot now. I want it to boot from CD and need to change the option in BIOS. Can you please suggest, how can I reset this...


Hi Prajeet
To reset your BIOS password you need to call the NEC to give you a reset code. Most Computer manufacturers like DELL, HP do have password reset tool from their end. you just need to call them to ask for a reset code but expect to answer all security questions before they gave you the reset code.
Thanks for using Fixya.

What's the password for phoenix bios on nec versa e6500 notebook?


try the following; phoenix, PHOENIX, CMOS, BIOS
If that does not work you have two options.
1) remove all power and all batteries for about 15 minutes (there is a battery on the motherboard) and it should reset to blank. 2) if you can boot there are various bios hack programs to reset the bios but I would only do this as a last resort. I absolutely do not trust someone to hack the bios if I can avoid it.

Forget bios password on nec laptop versa


The BIOS password may be removed by removing the BIOS battery from the notebook for 20 mins. If you cannot wait for this period, then short out the battery contacts for a few secs.
Replace the BIOS battery and go to the BIOS configuration and set the Date & Time etc.
If this procedure does not work then try this WEB site for BIOS passwords :-

Versa VXi PC Notebook: Password bios protect, how to reset bios password ...


I know some methods to reset bios password.
1. The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the mainboard. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes.
2. Follow some hard tutorials, it is difficult to do. It is better that you are a expert. For example this tutorial: Bypass BIOS Password or Crack CMOS Password?
3. Use the bios password recovery tool , but that is not free!

So I would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

You will need to reset the BIOS by pulling the internal battery out and putting back in.

Check the manufacturer's website for specs on the computer.

Forgot my bios password


Turn off the computer, flip the BIOS reset switch then turn the computer back on and the password should be gone. turn the computer back off and return the switch position back to the way it was. The switch will be either near the battery or near the processor on the motherboard. on a laptop it will be on the bottom.

If that's too complicated or there is no switch found take out the CMOS battery for 5-10 minutes.
