Windows 10: Need help with BIOS Password

    Need help with BIOS Password

    Greetings everyone this is my first post!

    I have a MSI Z77-G45 Main Board and I forgot my password for the BIOS. I'm sure it's UEFI because I have tried to remove the battery for one hour as well as using the clear cmos button and even the clear cmos jumper. The BIOS states that the settings were set to default but it still continues to ask for a password whenever it tries to boot the OS. I have also removed the HDD and DVDROM to ensure that wasnt causing the problem. I have had this MB since 2013 and have never had a problem so now i'm stuck and I can't use it unless I get rid of this UEFI BIOS Password. Please help!

    Thanks for posting that I'll make sure to try the 24 hour method with the jumper connected and no power going to the mainboard. I'll also press the cmos button a couple of times when I do plug it in tomorrow.
