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.

    "just show the black screen" ? you're screwed. Sounds like the video over heated. yup yup, some of these Asus EEE PC's had some serious over heating issues, looks like you picked a winner!! Get a new MoBo off of Ebay and be happy. ORRRR you could try the ever-so controversial "Oven Trick" I used the forbidden "Oven Trick Method" to reflow the solder on Many of my "dead" Nvidia cards. what ?? you've never heard of the "Oven Trick" mwaahhahahh Type "Oven Trick Nvidia" into Youtube and Behold Your SOLUTION !!!

    Hello,



    Thanks for all these explanations. I succeed in disassembling my new Asus Eee PC1015BX netbook. (How to disassemble Asus Eee PC 1015PX netbook http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-asus-eee-pc-1015px-netbook/comment-page-3/#comment-890289 )

    I remove the two cable connectors which connect the CMOS with the battery and wait for several minutes. Then I reboot and I still have the Bios password screen. Is there a default password ?

    Thanks very much in advance for your help.
