I've lost the bios password to my Omnibook 900b...is there any way to reset it? I've tried desoldering the bios battery but it doesn't work! Thanks a lot, any help would be majorly appreciated.

Remove the battery, move this jumper, boot...
Then put this jumper back to its place, and battery back... No password anymore...

Easiest would be to find an indication on these solder pads. But there is no motherboard specifications nor indications anywhere on HP site... Isn't there somewhere some 'rst' indications ? If not, you can still take the battery off, and wait for the BIOS chipset to empty its charge. But it can take days...

So basically I'm screwed. Thanks HP.
Cheers for your replies guys.

If you have no other solution, try the 'wait' technique...
Sorry not to have straight solution...

Suggestions would be to go back to who you got the unit from and 1) ask them what the password is, or failing that 2) ask them for a bill of sale.
Sorry, but that's about all I can think of.
