The only way is to open the laptop up and there will be a small watch type battery, quite big but flat. it will be on the motherboard. take the battery off the otherboard for at least 10 seconds and then put it back in. this should reset the bios to factory default.

Forgot my password. How do I reset it on my Gallaxy 3


You forgot your BIOS (UEFI) password? The OS password? It matters! Try searching for terms like 'uefi password reset Galaxy III' and see what's relevant, or give a better explanation of circumstances. If you didn't set another account and ordered hard enough encryption, you might not be able to reset it; but a little time in exercises jogging your memory might avail fine.

7. Connect all the connection and restart your computer. It it will reset the bios setting.

SOLUTION 5. REMOVING THE CMOS BATTERY

If the jumper switch solution doesn't work, try this solution by removing the cmos battery.

I forgot my bios password, i want to reset my bios password


A. By Removing the CMOS Battery:

cmos_battery.jpg Almost all motherboards use a small coin sized CMOS battery to store all BIOS settings along with the password. To reset the password, unplug the PC, open the cabinet and remove the CMOS battery for approx. 15-30 minutes and then put it back. It'll reset all BIOS settings as well as the password and you'll need to re-enter all settings.
If it fails, then try to remove the battery for at least one hour.
B. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
