How to easily reset the BIOS password on a laptop

There are many options for protecting data on a computer or laptop. You can protect files and folders, partitions and disks with encryption, protect your computer with a password using an account and lock your laptop with a BIOS password. Most users prefer to add a strong password to their user accounts so that others cannot access the data. The password for logging into the windows system is a good idea, but it cannot prevent you from loading up to the login screen and using detours, special programs to find out the password. Even more important is if someone manages to boot from a Linux Live CD or a Windows boot disk and instantly copy all data to an external disk.

Since all of the above passwords can be reset and recognized as workarounds, some users prefer to use the BIOS password. The BIOS password is relatively safe than the user account password, since no one can boot from the boot disk or until the Windows login is loaded without entering the correct BIOS password.
