Can't use the PC, forgotten BIOS password

Any ideea how to reset or remove the BIOS password for an ASUS Vivo AIO V222FA all-in-one desktop PC? I have tried everything, even opening the computer, taking out the motherboard and tried to make a short-circuit between the + and - motherboard batttery pins. It appears that nothing actually works even after reading all the guides I could find online.

ASUS support advised to send the computer to their service department and they said it will cost around $300 to reset the BIOS password.

Is there any way to do this myself or sending the computer to an authorized service is the only way to unlock the computer?

type in the wrong password until it gives you a code, then post that code here

I'm not getting that code at all. I tried enter random passwords, after entering 3 wrong passwords the only thing I'm getting it's just a blank screen. Pressing random keys, nothing happens. I can do a ctrl+alt+delete then it asks again for the password. Same goes for pressing the power button. Anything else I could try?

Actually ctrl+alt+del is not working (my bad, it's working but I have to press it at least 2-3 times). The system looks like it's totally frozen after 3 invalid password. The only thing I can do is to keep the power button pressed for a few seconds, it powers off, then power it again from the button and then I'm back at the Enter Password screen

@bms1981 did you setup a bios password and forgot it ?

I believe someone did. I have no ideea what happened. This is an office computer which worked just fine until 3 weeks ago. A lot of people had access to this computer in the office so one day I found it like this. Of course, no one admits anything, nobody changed the password and so on. The computer was bought brand new like 3 months ago and now it's in this situation so it's totally unusable
