So I bought a motherboard and APU from a friend who previously had an internet cafe, the motherboard has a BIOS password and he has no idea what it is since he had a technician before. The problem is, even if i plug a bootable hard drive to it, it still prompts for the BIOS password, basically it can't be used. I have tried removing the battery for a day, jumped the clear cmos overnight, for both of these processes the power supply has not been connected to the motherboard, shorted pins 1 and 6 on the bios chip while turning the system on. I want to use this as an htpc since its an APU. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-HD3 and it's a REV 3.0 board. APU is a A6-6400 series,have no idea what specifically it is since i can't get to the BIOS. Anyone got ideas on how to remove this? Im thinking my last resort would be de-soldering the main bios chip and backup bios chip and swap their positions, check if that would work since I know how and have the equipment to do that but I'm not sure if that would work or just kill the motherboard.
