My son has set a bios password on his advent pc. He knows it but its a pain to type everytime he now logs on. How does he clear it?
many thanks for any advice!

Either

enter the bios and pick the setting for password and change it to non.S
or remove the cmos battery or short the cmos jumper.

PS

are you sure it's the bios password and not password to boot into a windows account?
