I received this computer from my son. I went into the BIOS and reset it to factory defaults. While I was in the BIOS utility, I set the administrator password. What I tried to reboot the computer I cannot get past the BIOS admin because the password I created is not working. I removed the cover and unplugged the CMOS battery for 10 minutes with no change. Without replacing the BIOS chip, what else can I do?
