Question about Dell Latitude D610 Notebook
How i remove hp bios password
Get to the bios options, press F2 or delete to open the bios options then remove the password there. Before read this below................
HP Technical Support will help you remove it if you can prove that you own it. Here is an excerpt from the service manual for your laptop:
Password Removal Policy
If the user forgets the system password, the user calls Technical Support to determine the proper removal procedure The user must provide proof of ownership and the notebook must be operated during the procedure.
The password removal procedure is protected as HP Company Private information There are a restricted number of locations that can perform password removal It might not be disclosed or distributed outside those locations.
Password removal is strictly controlled Hewlett-Packard and authorized support providers must ensure with written evidence that the notebook being “cleansed” is actually in the possession of the notebook’s actual and current owner This requires a sales receipt showing the notebook serial number and owner’s name, or a written statement from the owner attesting that he or she is the owner of the notebook. The statement can be a fax copy of the document The fact that the notebook is in the hands of an HP representative on behalf of the customer is not evidence of ownership In addition, HP will not remove the password of a notebook for any non-owner, even if it is requested by law enforcement agencies If you receive such a request, you should notify management and HP Corporate Legal immediately.
(These requests might require a court order prior to our participation).
Further, the entity removing the password must log the name, serial number and date of the removal, and file the written backup with the log The log and backup are subject to standard record retention process and review.
The final issue relating to removal of passwords is that HP cannot provide information to users that would assist them in improperly removing a password and opening a notebook.

SOURCE: REMOVE BIOS PASSWORD
thanks for using fixya!
I am sorry, but removing the bios battery is not the solution for you to remove the bios password, actually it is a long process and risky. I suggest that you bring your laptop to a service center/technician.
If you need further assistance, let me know!

Remove the system board battery (about the size of a nickel) for 20 minutes or temporarily cross the cmos reset jumper on the system board (likely near the battery) for a few seconds. Make certain to put the jumper block back to it's original position.

You won't be able to do it yourself. You'll have to contact an authorized HP support center.
There used to be "easy" ways but now the password is stored on a chip on the motherboard.
