I am having Acer Aspire 3 A315-51-316K model i3 processor 7130U with 4 GB ram (Soldered). I use Fedora OS. I want to remove this and install new OS. For this, I created bootable USB and started the installation process. To my surprise, the BIOS asks for Current password after I press f2 or f12 button. So, I am unable to enter the BIOS settings now.
I had three password attempt and the Laptop gives a unlock code. The bios present in the laptop is of Insyde and the recovery code for Insyde is usually 8 digit but the recovery code I received is 10 digit. I am sure its Insyde bios. I have already checked. So the back door bios reset option like bios-pw.org doesn't work.
I tried a hard reset by removing the laptop battery, CMOS battery and left for about an hour but still no use. I couldn't locate the jumper as well.
Help me unlock the bios. Thank you.
