How do I erase the bios password

I have a lenovo thinkpad yoga 11e. I forgot the bios password. I can't login to my computer. Is there a backdoor bios password? If not, then does removing the CMOS battery work? If it does, then how would I do it?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

To reset the BIOS password you need to remove the coin-cell battery and short out its contact points. This should reset the password.

We don't have a guide on your specific model, but I came across this user manual that explains the procedure of replacing the battery. Scroll to page 108. Good luck.

how do i short out its contact points


@The Rebel: You take a metal object and touch both contact points of the battery slot.


What does the coin cell battery look like is it a blue round thing
