Welcome to the Community

 

I hate to bring bad news, but the BIOS password is a security feature which wouldn't be secure if it could be bypassed. I'm afraid you'll either have to remember the password, replace the motherboard or just live with not being able to change BIOS settings.

You at least have a useable computer, that’s the good news. 🙂

Without the supervisor password, you will not be able to do that.

The only options are to remember the password, or to replace the system board. That is all.

It is unless you can recall the password or live without disabling Secure Boot and enabling Virtualization. If you can live without those, you should get a nice, long life out of the computer. I have some computers that I've never needed to change any BIOS settings. They've run on the default settings since coming out of the box.

 

I wish you luck.
