    Hi.

    Is it posible to reset the BIOS by removing the BIOS battery inside the case?

    Will it be enough to take the battery out or will I have to short some pins also?

    Thanks.

    Not normally the case with this as the flash is would need a reflash to reset it if you bricked it.

    So is it pointless to try it? Where can I find a bios dump for this one?

    Hi,

    my experience is, there is no dedicated button battery for BIOS (UEFI) iz EZBook 3 PRO v.2. When I disconnected the main battery, the UEFI did reset to factory defaults.

    Genius Ulric 🙂 Thank you very much, it worked, just unplugging the main battery for a few seconds and the BIOS got reset.

    The thing is I couldn’t get into bios neither by ESC key nor Windows, I could log in Windows because I had VNC installed, but then i never got to BIOS to perform the blind reset, but the battery trick did it 🙂

    I was trying to enable boot from USB device and somehow I have disabled the keyboard when the UEFI/BIOS settings are loaded. I tried a USB keyboard and that doesn’t work, I can boot windows and it works. So I think I am going to have to pop the bottom off and disconnect the battery!!!

    Resetting the bios doesn’t remove the admin password. How to?
