Scroll down to the middle of this page and select your language.> MSI Global ? Notebook - GX660

Then download the manual. It should tell you exactly how to change the password.

Then you have not used the correct password. If you read the manual from the link that was posted it says there are 2 Passwords. A User password that only allows Viewing of the BIOS settings and a Supervisor password that allows changes. Use the Supervisor password. you are now using the User Password.

Laptop BIOS passwords are stored differently than on desktops. They are not erased by removing the BIOS battery. They use a different chip that doesn't require power to maintain whats written to it. Removing the BIOS battery will just mess up the date and time, and maybe the boot order, etc. Its done that way on purpose so that the password can't be easily bypassed if its lost or stolen. If you call the manufacturer and can prove ownership, they may be able to help you reset it. Otherwise you need to know what the password is to be able to change it. There are other ways but forum rules prevent prevent me from discussing them, as they could be used to hack into a laptop.
