I have a second-hand HP Touchsmart 600 and need to get into the BIOS, but a password has been reset, so I can't get in to change the settings.
I've opened the back compartment which exposes the memory modules and from there I managed to removed the CMOS battery, but that doesn't seem to make any difference - it still remembers (so is this stored on the hard drive?).
I need to be able to reset it, but I can't find any manuals which shows how to open the workstation fully to reset it using the jumpers.
Does anyone know how to open it or preferably is there any utility that you can run to reset the BIOS from within Windows. I already tried !BIOS, but that's only 32-bit and I have Windows 7 64-bit installed so it won't run.
