BIOS Password wipe [Solved]

I've got an Acer Aspire F5-571 with a InsydeH20 BIOS. Basically I installed Ubuntu and to do that I had to disable secure boot which on this BIOS meant I had to set up a supervisor password. Stupidly I've forgotten the password I use. I can get into the BIOS by pressing enter 3 times and finding a key online. But I want to reset the password but can't seem to find any help and Acer want over 50gbp to fix.

Check if you have a password reset jumper on the motherboard/mainboard. Might try clearing the CMOs too

I've not stripped the laptop yet to check but going by other resources online it's not possible.

Unplug power, unplug Batterie and wait a long time!?

Sorted it. Used the code i got from to access the bios as the supervisor password and it accepted it and let me change/delete the password.

Those bios password are giving people just headaches.......
