    Hi folks,
    I am lost trying to research this subject. I bought a used Acer netbook (D260, on NAV70) that someone locked the bios on. And turning on the LAN presumably is hidden behind that password. I have tried several reading or attack tools and techniques, to no avail. Flashing the BIOS did nothing. Is there a reasonably straightforward way to either read or crack the p/w? Sorry for the very basic question. I'm sure it's been covered here many times, but I have spent a lot of time looking for it, futilely.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Ok, many thanks to levonisyas' sticky thread, Undocumented INSYDE BIOS recovery method. It worked perfectly, using Fn-ESC.

    Problem solved. Blessings!
