Forgotten BIOS password

  WiLL-A 19:58 28 Oct 2004

Does anyone know how I might be able to reset the BIOS password on my ACER ASPIRE G510.

I got the PC at the start of this year but ACER dont supply motherboard manuals (even on CD) and therefore I dont know which jumpers will require changing for a reset.

Even the ACER website does not give out any information on the motherboard and I am hesitant to call their 50p a min helpline given that the last 2 times i called this I was on for about 20mins each time.
