Does anyone know how I can reset the bios password on an Acer Aspire 5332?

A customer forgot their log in and I thought simple use offline nt passworld recovery but since I can't set it to boot from CD I need to get into the bios.

I'm not sure which bios it is for trying out backdoor passwords.

Is my only option the cmos jumper?

Remove the CMOS battery or reset the jumper, otherwise try and find the person who had the laptop last and beat the password out of them.

It was way easier than I thought it would be. I thought I was going to be taking the whole thing apart to reach the CMOS battery but it turned out the CMOS jumpers were just under the ram slots so all it took was 1 screw, removed ram and short the jumpers (labelled r1 for me) with a metal object. Worked perfectly.
