 +===== Phoenix BIOS Password Reset - case ACER Travelmate 5310 =====
 +28.09.2011

 +If you setup a password for Phoenix BIOS and forgot it, check [[http://​dogber1.blogspot.com/​2009/​05/​table-of-reverse-engineered-bios.html|this]]
 +
 +Basically, using the checksum generated (after 3 wrong entered passwords) by BIOS, you can brute-force the pass using a script (provided by the specified blog).
 +
 +A big thanks to Dogbert.

 +p.s. it works with a lot more BIOSes than Phoenix. \\ 
 +p.p.s. checked with a Travelmate with locked up BIOS. Password cracked in less than 3 seconds.
