Bios password

I purchased an Asus ROG G14 GA401-QM back on 4/7/2021. (Purchased from bestbuy's website) I noticed when attempting to enter the bios to change a few settings earlier today it prompted me to enter a password (I do not remember making one) and if I just hit enter, it takes me to the bios where on the main screen I can see it says, "administrative password installed" and when trying to change some of the setting (advanced mode) they are grayed out. Is there any way I can remove this BIOS password without having to send it back to them and pay an outrageous fee?

I already tried uhhh what is it called, bios password rescue by pressing ALT+R but it doesn't do anything, just types a character in the box.

Can you boot into windows? Because when i set a BIOS password on my Laptop it doesn't even boot without the password.

 

The easiest way to get rid of a BIOS password would probably be resetting/clearing BIOS by either removing the CMOS battery or with the dedicated jumper or switch (if present on your laptop). For that you probably will have to open up your Laptop.

 

If that doesn't work your only option would be contacting ASUS support I think.

I contacted asus and since it's out of warranty it it would be money to send it in for a diagnostic fee which I was trying to avoid paying.
