ASUS F3E Bios Password

Hi

A client of mine has an ASUS F3E which had the bios batter fail.    Now in order to boot the system we must enter the bios and save the settings.. Unfortunately the bios seems to have a password hard set.  By any chance is there anyone out there that can recommend any passwords to try or maybe some nifty fix?   note: the bios is American Megatrends

any help will be appreciate

This is a password stored on a chip. You can't remove it by usual methods.
It is kept it in a security chip - for anti-theft reasons, thus resetting the bios does not help,  nor does removing the battery.

Contact ASUS and you will need to show proof of ownership - then they can reset / unlock it or give you a solution.

If you want to try to reset / unlock it yourself see:
