Acer Aspire BIOS Password

I've been given the task of of trying to get past a boot-up BIOS password, because the idiot whose laptop it is, thought it would be a good security move, then hasn't used the machine for sometime and now can't remeber the password!!

The laptop is a 9301 and I believe that Acer may use a security bios chip (I think it's called a TPM)

I don't know if there is a backdoor password? (Any wizzes out there?), or tech specialists in the UK who can change the chip?

Any advice would be appreciated

From page 56 of the manual
"Important! Do not forget your Supervisor Password! If you forget your password, please get in touch with your dealer or an authorized service center."
