Hello,
Guys I want to clear CMOS on an HP laptop, how do I do that? I did set up a password to enter SETUP but now I forgot the password as a result I can't change my boot order and I need to re install Windows Clean installation, as the CD/DVD is set up up as third option.

Dear Sir,

There are two ways to reset the password:

1. using software
2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting using software, here are two software's to reset or retieive BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools 4.8

Goodluck
