Hi there

I have an old laptop here, I don't know the administrator password, but it has a poweron password that I know.
Now the clock is gone bad, and I guess it's the backup battery in it.
Now it says that the clock is bad and I need to go to bios to fix it, but as I don't know the administrator password I'm kind of stuck. It won't accept the poweron password either.
SO I think I need to have this bios reprogramming done (gives me the creeps to hack the machine that way), I'm going to order the kit for it, but how do I find the bios chip. I've removed the bottom of the laptop, but everything is covered in black plastic, so it's quite difficult to look around on the board. Do I need to remove the keyboard instead?

Hello,

Here is the BIOS location for T440s

under some black stickers, right close to the Memory module. Just remove the case back and peel off the sticker right there.
