Question about Samsung Computers & Internet
You need to remove the bios battery, short across two prongs or solder joints on the motherboard or if your lucky, flip a dipswitch. Some motherboards have the battery solder in so it is not easily removable.
The location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.
Older computers and especially older laptops don't have jumpers or dipswitches and require the user to jump a pair of solder beads on a circuit board. The identification and location of these solder beads can vary and if not available in computer documentation is only obtainable through the computer manufacturer.
If you've identified the solder beads they can be jumped by placing a flat-head screwdriver over the two beads and leaving it on those beads while turning on the computer. Once the computer has booted turn off the computer and then remove the screwdriver.
There are programs that say they can reset the password but they are not for the faint of heart as again you can ruin your computer very easily.
Remember, a wrong move and you can ruin the computer so proceed with caution. I take no responsbility for ruining your system. Although expensive, returning the computer to the manufacture is the safest way to reset the password.

you can reset the bios password by removing the CMOS battery fomr the system. Its inside the board and you need to unscrew the bottom panel to locate where is it installed. just remove the battery for 2-3 mins and the password would be removed.
