I have installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my acer aspire v3-575G. I was prompted to set a password to disable secure boot and I complied. After restarting to configure my boot order(I am dual booting) I was surprised to see that my BIOS settings are all greyed out. The only single thing I can interact with are the date and time and the user password from the security tab. Things I tried: 1. 2. I am running out of options. Any help would be welcome. Things I've tried:
- Enter the user password
- Enter a wrong password
- 3x then using an Unlock BIOS password(I got into BIOS but its still the same (Greyed Out Options)
- Performing a full clean reinstall of Ubuntu (I followed this guide).
After trying software options I went to hard reset options. So I also tried.
- Reseat the CMOS battery (5 mins - 10 mins)
Reseating CMOS only made it worse. It just changed time and disabled F12 BOOT Options)
I feel desperate and mentally exhausted. Any help would be welcome.
