its the small round silver one,take it out for about 2mins then put it back, alot of laptops when you do this takes most passwords out.
make sure its turnd off first,
let me know how you get on.

How would i reset a hp invent laptop ? i've forgotten my password .

If you have forgotten the password for the BIOS, you will need to open the laptop and change the status of a jumper. You may be better off leaving that one up to the pros. If you forgot your windows password, you will need some software. There are a few different kinds out there, but it is imprudent for me to give those links out over the open internet. You may request more information on a private service request.

Good luck,
