I have had just the same problem, i took my laptop apart removed the cmos battery its just to the side of the trackpack on top of the motherboard, but this did not work, HERE is the solution with out stripping the all the laptop make sure the battery is out and no power to the laptop all you need to do is take the plastic part with the power button on off and underneath you will see a small switch called SW1 move the number one switch to on then power up the laptop press F2 and there you go your in the bios, save all settings turn off put the switch back to where it was put you plastic facia back on replace the battery power up now press F2 and do what you want all is good

    Customers laptop had similar issue, 3 owners on and no clue about password. System needed reloading but no way to boot dvd without BIOS access. This method worked 100%. Was a bit nervous with cover clips near power button but they proved more hardy than I gave them credit for.simmo365 thanks for saving me from endless hours or reading/googling and my customer thanks u also you a legend.

You need to reset the BIOS password. One way is to dismantle the laptop. Once you can see the board, look for a battery that is similar to watch batteries but is much bigger (the circle flat kind). Remove it then put it back again. It will reset the BIOS settings on the computer. The tech guy would be just doing the same thing.
Hope this saves you $200.

Hi i have a acer 2410 laptop i havent used it for a while so i went to put it on and enter password comes on when i type in my password it shows invalid password so i knocked it off and put it back on...


If you don't want to open up the laptop and find the BIOS password jumper on the motherboard, you'll need to send it in to the manufacturer (or a good local tech) to get it reset. There is no other way to reset/remove a BIOS password.

Reset bios password acer Travelmate 2410


I know some methods to reset bios password.
1. The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box, take out the cmos battery from the mainboard. Then the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes.
2. Follow some tutorials. For example the tutorials:
Reset ACER Aspire 3610 BIOS Password - Only 8 Steps

Top 3 methods to crack bios password!
3. Use the bios password recovery tool , but that is not free!

So I would suggest you the 1st method. Hope it helps.

Acer TRAVELMATE 2410


Clearing a BIOS password on a laptop takes a little bit more effort than a desktop. If you are comfortable opening the machine then I will post back more detail but if you are concerned about your warranty or are worried about the safety of your motherboard, professionals are in the best option.
