In this tutorial we will show you how to reset the supervisor password on the BIOS if you have forgotten it.

” The IdeaPad S10e is powered by an Intel Atom processor that provides lower power consumption and reliable performance. Also featured are a choice of solid state or SATA hard disk drive, an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator, and Intel High Definition Audio. Increased portability is achieved with a Broadcom 802.11 b/g wireless LAN card, an ExpressCard slot to allow Internet connection with a WWAN card, plus Bluetooth technology and an integrated camera and microphone.”

1. Remove the battery- To remove the battery, snap the battery lock No. 1 to the open position. Press and hold lock No. 2 to the unlocked position and pull the battery out of the system.

2. Remove the HDD/DIMM Cover- Remove the small security screws and lift off the cover

3. Remove the HDD - Use a probe to lift out the hard disk drive tab, then pull the tab to disconnect the connector and pull the drive out of the system.

4. Remove the palm rest / touch pad assembly - Remove the four screws on the bottom of the machine as shown. Turn the system over and open the cover. Carefully lift the palm rest up, then open and disconnect the ZIF connector and the touchpad/microphone connector. Remove the palm rest.

5. Remove the keyboard – Next to the HDD connector take out the single keyboard retaining screw, to the right of the connector. Turn the system over, open the cover, and remove the two keyboard retaining screws, next below the spacebar on the keyboard. Open the latch on the keyboard ZIF connector, and lift the keyboard out of the system.

6. Remove the Bluetooth board (not on all models) – It is located near the ZIF connector for the keyboard. Remove the single screw, then lift the Bluetooth card up and disconnect the connector from the systemboard. Lift the card out of the system, and remove the cable from the card.
