Disconnect battery for how long - to reset Bios?

Another thread running (Snags ......)

Have removed Battery/clock chip from ancient MOBO to return bios to default, hoping to lose need for an unknown password.

How long do I leave it - 1, 5, 10 minutes?

battery removal is usually sufficient - has been for me. So 2-3 mins to put battery back - butter fingers etc etc and you should be sorted>

Make sure the mains is switched off, or it will not work.

Yes, and the plug has been pulled for most of that time.
