I have a Samsung np520u4c laptop and want to know how to clear the BIOS. Currently, I do not have access to the BIOS in the normal manner.

I removed the CMOS battery and waited for over an hour till I plugged it back in. This did not create a solution.

Thank you for looking.

What is the real problem that you think that clearing the BIOS will solve?

Thank you, DaveA. Without my consent or instruction a BIOS password has been activated. Upon boot it asks me to enter a password.

Does anyone else have access to this machine? How long have you had this machine?

You can clear the bios until the cows come home; it is not going to fix a bios pw. A laptop is different than a desktop in regard to bios pw.
Since we do not offer assistance with pw issues, I am closing this thread.
