Cannot reset BIOS password??

Trying to fix an Aspire E1-531.

 

BIOS previously had password set - which I KNEW.

 

Tried disabling BIOS password by entering current password then pressing [Enter] as 'new password' and 'confirm password'

 

BIOS is still password protected - and it now won't accept EITHER password.

 

Help!
