MSI B75A-G41 password reset
#1
Hello everyone. 
First of all I'm new on this forum and don't have much experience with BIOS so I will try to explain everything best I can. I will also appreciate if someone can explain me step by step what to do. 

So my problem is years ago I bought my PC with MSI B75A-G41 mobo and put BIOS password on it which after 7 years I don't remember. I probably also set Reset password option to disable. Not sure about that but I've been trying to reset CMOS by JBAT1 bumper and battery remove, date and time reset's but password still show's up  Angry 

I've been contacting MSI support but the only respond I get is to contact with local vendor, which I did but they couldn't help me. 
I've also read this thread https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-R...#pid146293 
problem seems similar to mine, I've tried this method but I get only error's in console:

"C:\Users\[censored]\Desktop\FPT V11\FPT V11>FPTw.exe/bin -bios -rewrite -f E7971IMS.BE0
PMXUtil: Error during PMX Call: idrvdll.dll!IDRVInstallDriver(): Couldn't Open S
ervice Manager err (5)

Error 366: Fail to load driver (PCI access for Windows).
Tool needs to run with an administrator priviledge account."

I don't know if the method is proper for my MOBO and what I'm doing wrong. Maybe there is other option to reset my password?
Hope some of you guys can help me cuz im fighting with this for few days and im really getting tired of this. 
Thanks in advance for any response.
