BIOS password reset on laptop
Hello, I have an Acer Aspire R11 R3 131T (blue) that has a bios password locked on it that has been forgotten. I need to reset the Bios so i can do a clean install of windows through the F10 Menu thats is disabled behind the password.
What I have done:
Removed battery and cmos battery for 1 hour
Used a BIOS code generator to access the bios through the given key (i can access the bios, but cannot change any settings besides date and time, when i enter the code in the supervisor password, it returns as incorrect and halts the system)
Attempted to short the pins to reset the cmos. G108 on the motherboard documentation.
Each time the same result, pressing F2 results in a password being asked, which i can bypass through a code generator, but cannot disable the supervisor password. I meed to reset the bios because the computer is useless in the current state. Any help would be appreciated.
