Unknown BIOS password

I need access to my girlfriend's ACER Travelmate 512T BIOS and she doesn't know the password. I've reset these passwords on desktop units by removing the battery and/or moving a jumper, but I've opened up the access ports underneath the laptop and no battery or jumper just memory and modem. Anyone know what to do?

I forget now, will I lose any data on the HDD (don't think so)?

Thanks.

Phil

  1. you won't lose HD data, but i don't know how you would reset the password. sometimes you won't see the battery, but you will see a jumper for it.

    As I remember they used dongles to reset bios.
