    Open the computer. Locate the CMOS jumper. The jumper will usually consist of 3 pins, though on the rare occasion, 2 pins (requiring you to supply the jumper itself). This often is labeled with "clear," "cmos," "password" or some abbreviation that indicates it is the password jumper. It is usually located near the CMOS battery, or processor. In laptops, it is often a dipswitch at the bottom of the laptop. Consult your motherboard documentation to find the location if you are unsure of where it is located.

    SOURCE: msi u100 bios password

    Turn the laptop upside down and remove the plates one by one. Wherever you see a button cell, remove it for a minute or so and then reinsert it and put back all the covers. Power on and boot up the laptop. And remember not to use the password again. And if you have to then use such that you can not forget ever.

    Bios locked forgot password

    To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

    In case of your MSI laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper and I wouldn't recommend doing it especially if it's under warranty.
