Client of ours decided to put in a BIOS Startup Password and a BIOS Administrator Password. He remembers the BIOS Startup password since he uses that to get into the machine daily. Issue is he doesn't remember the BIOS Administrator Password. I need access to the BIOS and there is no way to get int the computer.
I tried removing the CMOS Battery and the power for ten minutes and still has it in there.
There is only one jumper on the Main-board. I set it from 1-2 to 2-3 and started machine for five minutes and did not work to clear password.
Open to Ideas.
