How to Reset or Remove BIOS Password

To reset or remove the BIOS password, look for a jumper which usually can be found near the processor or BIOS battery on the motherboard. After locating the jumper (usually with a label – PSWD beside it), move the jumper from connected pins 1+2 to pins 2+3 for a few seconds or so, then move back to pins 1+2. This will reset the entire BIOS settings. The next time you boot your computer, the BIOS will show you the default factory settings and from there you can optionally set a new password.

Another alternative way to completely reset your bios setting is to re-insert the CMOS battery which can be found on the motherboard. The CMOS battery provides power supply to the motherboard in order to hold the Bios Setting data. That said, when you remove the CMOS battery, everything stored will be reset to the factory default setting. You can do this when you have no access to DOS.
