I have a notebook for school and, as I am constantly concerned with security, it is pretty locked. I set up a strong password for every operating system, but I also have set up a password lock on the BIOS, as this notebook's is fairly powerful and configurable. The problem is, I know what was probably my password and some alternatives, but I can't get to unlock it and just have user access.
I need to change some settings, but it is imposssible. What I suspected was I somehow had the fn key pressed while creating the password, but it didn't prove right, and so is the BIOS locked for about one year or more.
ASUS support for this is extremely slow and useless, they had not provided me an answer in 3 months of contact (and they take about 15 days to answer) and asked the model and serial number every single time, so I lost patience. Updating the version also doesn't remove the password.
Notebook is a K43BY and the BIOS is the most up-to-date from the website.
Please help me fellas :(
