How to BIOS reset ASUS EEE PC netbook and remove BIOS password

If your BIOS is locked and you forget the BIOS password of your ASUS Eee PC netbook, than you are in trouble when you will try to install a new OS to your ASUS EEE PC netbook cause you cant select any other boot device than the integrated SSD, to restore the factory default BIOS values and remove the BIOS password you must do a hard reset to the BIOS.

The BIOS reset of the ASUS Eee PC netbook is not as easy as on desktop PC, there is no visible jumper or battery to remove, you must remove the connector of the BIOS battery from the motherboard, so to do that you have to open the netbook case to get into it, Ive made a step by step process with image demonstration of how you can clear the BIOS setting.

First of all you need to open all screw in the back of the netbook:

Now you must remove the keyboard by pressing the plastic keyboard protector showed on the pictures (there is three on the top):

Now remove mouse and keyboard flex cable, then the screws you find under the keyboard:

Remove gently the plastic cover:

Now here is the part to rest the BIOS, on the bottom right of the motherboard you will find a two cable connectors which connect the CMOS with the battery, remove this cable gently and wait about one minute and there you go:

You can now reconnect the cable and your done.

Now your BIOS is cleared and any BIOS password is deleted, if you have any question please comment.
