Unplug everything from the laptop, and take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 20 seconds, then plug everything back in and turn it on. It should reset the CMOS.

If you've lost the bios password, you'll probably have to 'flash' the bios. If you feel comfortable enough, you can dismantle the laptop and remove the motherboard battery for several minutes, then replace it and reassemble the system, see if the password has been cleared. (Note: The motherboard battery is NOT the laptop battery; you have to remove both!)

I forgot my bios password of my laptop hp 6730s and cant even reformat it ? any help plz ? thank you so much .


You need to clear the cmos. This is accomplished by removing the cmos battery for 5-10 minutes.
1. Remove the battery 2. Remove the keyboard 3. Remove the LED switch cover 4. Remove the cmos battery cable from the motherboard 5. slide the battery out of the brack
Reverse the step after 10 minutes and the bios should be reset. On first boot you are going to need to reset your clock, settings etc.

Password bios


Resetting the BIOS password for a laptop can be difficult. A typical way to reset the BIOS password is to remove the CMOS battery from inside the computer. By removing the CMOS battery, a small battery inside the computer that looks like a watch battery...it should clear out the password. Often times with a laptop though, the CMOS battery might not be easily accessible.
I have done this before by unscrewing the bottom or back of the laptop, and then looking for the battery. You remove the battery for lets say 5 minutes, and let the laptop sit. Then carefully put the battery back in, and reboot the laptop, and see if BIOS password is gone.
I would recommend letting someone from a local PC repair place try this, as it can be a delicate procedure. Otherwise you need to follow up directly with Dell and probably send it off to them.

Alternately, you could try and take main the battery out of the laptop to try and reset it. I'm not sure though this would clear a BIOS password.
Hope this helps.

My kids setup a bios password on my new HP laptop and they cant remember it. How do i remove the password without knowing the previous that was set by them. Please guys help me.


The only way to do this is to reset the CMOS/BIOS memory.

  1. Remove the back cover of your laptop to "reveal" motherboard.
  2. Make a way so that you can see the a bigger portion of the motherboard ESPECIALLY the small lithium battery powering the CMOS chip.
  3. If this battery is reachable, remove it in place.
  4. After 3 minutes or more, place the battery back.
  5. Place the covers back and power on your laptop.
  6. The bios password now should be removed since the content of the CMOS memory is cleared.

Depending on the brand of the laptop, you can reset the BIOS password juts by removing ALL power sources: AC Adapter, main battery and BIOS Battery for a t least 5 minutes. The BIOS battery may require some disassembling, but loook in the usual places: memory compartment, hard disk compartment, and WiFi compartment.Some brand laptop can be render useless due to a BIOS Password. Your laptop manufacturer can reset your password for a mere $200 or so. Give them a call.
