There's two things you can do.

  1. Open the computer and take out the BIOS battery. Replace and turn the computer on.
  2. Sometimes is no enough, there's a jumper next to battery. If the connector is closed the BIOS reset.
  3. Do it with the power out.

If you are referring to the bios password, you can reset it most times by removing the cmos battery, usually a silver nickel cadmium battery on the motherboard. Remove it and then replace it, this resets all CMOS settings.

I FORGET MY LAPTOP BIOS PASSWORD WHAT CAN I DO I HAVE HP COMPAQ 610


i,

To reset the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and that fix the problem.

I have set the password for administrator when i entered the bios set up. you can change its setting but not the configuration unless you've entered the password. you can't change the password with a new one if you cant enter the old password. Next time dont forget your password because laptops has its security even when stolen you cant open its bios set up if its protected by password. CMOS battery is in the mother board. You need a service technician to open your laptop to reset the bios setup battery.
