There's no jumpers to set on a laptop as there is on a desktop motherboard to reset a BIOS password. Your best bet is to remove the main battery, open up the laptop and look for the backup (or BIOS) battery - they usually look like a few small button cell batteries together in a shrink wrap casing. Unplug that battery from the motherboard, and leave the laptop unpowered for 24-48 hours. Once you reconnect everything and boot the laptop, the BIOS should be totally cleared back to defaults, thus erasing the password.

If you feel this solutions has helped, please rate it! Good luck!!

Can't find location of BIOS chip on a latitude e6510 laptop


Hello,

Removing the battery on this model will not clear the BIOS password as you have found. The password is stored in flash memory. Her is a link to a site that can generate a unlock code for your system from the number string displayed on the password screen.

Where is Cmos Clear jumper on motherboard to clear Bios password.


If you can't find the jumper, just remove the CMOS battery wait for 1/2 + hour and the re-insert the battery. This will reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you then need to set the Time & Date.
It may not remove the BIOS password if the laptop stores the password on an EEPROM chip.

I need to clear my Bios Password for My IBM Thinkpad R52


OK, I posted this the other day, so for the benefit of those who missed it. "None" of these techniques will work on the R52, as it has a different chip. The above well intentioned solutions mentioned above will work with older models but not this machine as the bios chip has been changed. FYI
