Disconnect the computer from the mains. Unscrew the mounting screws on the system cover and remove it. Now carefully examine the motherboard. It should be a round battery.
Locate the battery and remove it from the slot. After the battery is removed, wait for a while before inserting it back. Ten minutes would be sufficient. Then insert the battery back into the slot. Close the cover of the system unit. Turn on the computer. Now all settings of BIOS restored defaults.
Is there another way to reset the BIOS, but it is not supported by all motherboards. Take the manual to your motherboard and see if it has the jumper reset the BIOS.

After the reset, close the system cover, reconnect the computer to the mains and switch on. The settings will be reset.
