How to Reset BIOS on an HP Pavilion DV6000

Updated February 21, 2017

The Hewlett-Packard Pavilion DV6000 is part of HP's line of entertainment-focused notebook computers. The DV6000 uses a basic input/output system, or BIOS, to regulate basic hardware settings and functions. The BIOS relies on a small battery connected to the motherboard to save its settings when the computer is turned off. Remove the battery temporarily to reset the BIOS back to its factory settings.
