Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
I assumed that you have a password on bios..and you need to get rid of it ..in order to be able to get into bios settings and make changes...
If it is a desktop it will be easier..cause all you have to do is to remove the left lid..and put it on aside..and you will be facing the motherboard...remove the bios battery from the main board..with care cause it has a locking metal mount ..and it can be breakable ...after removing ..wait about 10 seconds and place it back ..and restart the computer ...it will prompt you to press f1 to go to bios directly and insert again the date and clock values...Cause it is rather difficult to do it from bios ..I will recommend to go into bios by pressing f1..and after that press F10 to save the values that already are and boot the computer ..and set the time and date from windows cause it is much easier..Just double click on the clock in the tray area..and will open the window where you can set it ..
after hat the password will be gone and you can operate in BIOS..
For a laptop the issue is the same ..you have to remove the bios battery ..or to switch its contact off if it has a switch on he main board..but the issue is that a laptop is much more difficult to open ..and you do need to open it ar at least see if the battery is under the keyboard ..For some models you do not have to get to the main board directly ..but it is enough to remove the hinges cover ...(remove from the back first than open the display to max..and from F1 and F10 points remove it with a flat screwdriver by inserting and twist it ..It will snap off..)
after that remove the screws from the keyboard..and slide the keyboard about an inch toward the display and it will come out ..
Pay attention on the ribbon that connects it ..and after that usually there is the wireless card right under...if you remove that you will see the battery ..if there isnt there ..you will have to continue the stripping ..and open it all..remove the hdd..the battery ..all the screws in the back and inside the ram memory area and the cooling dispenser..(heat dispenser..it is an aluminum piece that cools the CPU ) ..and see that there are hidden screws inside the battery compartment ..and all the other holes from where you removed devices...when all the screws areout ..it will snap off from the sides..start from bottom right ..insert a flat ..plastic tool ..with at least 1cm wide front ..and go ..from there ..inch by inch ..with care ..not to force it too hard..
I will place a video here about how to do it ..
