When asked for the password, just hit enter 3 times.

 

Post any code you receive.

> tried jumping the pins on board 

 

Sometimes, on some motherboards, just "jumping" those pins is not enough.  There are other actions, such as powering-on, that are required.

 

However, there seems to be an "unwritten" rule on this forum that discourages respondents from giving advice on how to bypass power-on passwords and BIOS-setup passwords on "portable" (and thus easier to steal) laptops, notebooks, and All-In-One systems.  So, to avoid getting "scolded" by a Provost or a Moderator, I'll stop typing right here.
