Clearing the BIOS password

The BIOS password is used to protect BIOS settings from unwanted changes. If you have forgotten your password you may disable password checking.
To erase the BIOS password follow these steps:
  1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
  2. Locate the jumper labeled Clear P.W. The jumper is found at the lower right edge of the motherboard.
  3. Move the jumper on jumper Clear P.W. to pins 1-2.
  4. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
  5. Hold down the F10 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to change or clear the password.
  6. After changing or clearing the BIOS passwords, remember to reset the jumper to pins 2-3.
