2. Enter the correct password, and press the Enter key. The computer will display "Valid password entered, system is now starting up. Check system. Then press (F1) key"
3. Press the F1 key. The BIOS setup program will appear.

F2 Key BIOS Password removing procedure

1. Starting with the computer fully off, turn it on by pressing and releasing the power button. Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key. The unit will display the "Password = " prompt.
2. Enter the correct password, press the Enter key. (You may need to press the F2 key after you hit the enter key.)
3. The BIOS setup program will appear.
4. Using the arrow keys, move to the Security tab, and to Set User Password.
5. Press the F5 or the F6 key to navigate to the Password section. Enter the current password at the Old Password prompt, and press Enter.

Ater replace the mouse,mouse not working


Did you restart or reboot your system? if not restart your system and see whether it's working or not. Most of the time replacing a hardware we need to restart or re-boot the system.
If your mouse doesn't work than use Keyboard. Press Ctrl+Esc simultaneously than use the arrow key up>choose the control panel>press enter>use right arrow key to choose the mouse option there press enter key again after you have selected.>Using Tab key and arrow key for choosing the option for "setting" that you wanted to change. See whether the setting is correct or not. If not set your setting.
All the Best!
