Ask the Experts:
It’s quite simple. If you’ve forgotten the password to get into the BIOS all you have to do is open up the largest panel on the bottom of the TravelMate, it’s the same one that covers the RAM and WiFi card, just toward to back of the Laptop you will see a small chrome covered battery. Just wedge this out working round the bit of plastic on the bottom of the case that would otherwise make this an easier task.
Once the battery has been removed, just wait for a few seconds and then pop it back in. Voila! You should now be able to boot your system up and change the settings in the BIOS or do whatever it is you wanted to do.
