Excuse my re-use from a more recent thread:

Removal  of  the CMOS battery or hitting/taking cap off the jumper on  the
motherboard  are  2  among  more solutions, I suspect. The  hard  part  is
opening  the  unit.  If you have a vendor-specific password reset utility,
use it. The third option is similar to the first and involves exposing the
motherboard. Be careful.

Best wishes,

Roy
