reset bios on veriton N282G

[ Edited ]

I purchased a used ACER Veriton, but the guy I bought it from put a bios password on it, and he isn't

answering my emails anymore about what it is.  (maybe that's why he sold it !) 

 

Is there a way to reset the bios to factory (with no password), so that I can at least re-install Windows 7 (i do have

the COA tag on the back)

 

Is there a battery I have to remove for a while,  or a pin config I need to jump ? 

 

What and/or how does the tiny "recovery" hole provide in relation to this (if anything?) 

 

thanks.
