Metod 2: Reset CMOS

        1. Shut down the laptop, unplug the power cord, remove the battery
        2. Open computer
        3. Find the CMOS battery, remove it for 30 seconds (if possible),
          or press Clear CMOS button on the motherboard for 30 seconds
          or find CMOS jumper, remove it / short other pair of pins for 30 seconds
        4. Connect everything back and power on
        5. press F1, go to BIOS, configure date and other details

Short circuit SDA and SCL in the security chip

This method requires more experience. You must find these pins on the security pins. It requires to power on the computer and short circuit these 2 pins as soon as keyboard light is on. Possible is that more retries will be needed. After this step, in BIOS should be reset password or disabled.

Use some PWD removal too software

There is a number of SW for password reset, as:

  • !Bios
  • CMOS De-Animator 3
  • CmosPwd
  • PC CMOS Cleaner

Using MS DOS Command

In command prompt enter next commands:

debug
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
quit

After the computer restarts, CMOS will be reset.
