    There's often a jumper on motherboards which can be used to clear the RAM used to store the BIOS configuration, including the password. Normally, just briding the jumper for a few seconds, with the power off, will reset the BIOS. You should read the manual for your motherboard.

    it shorts the cmos battery, or if there is no jumper, just remove the batter and short the two terminals.
