Question about Computers & Internet
SOURCE: acer elock
You don't need to pay acer the 100usd to get the password removed,
one thing you can try first, is to disable the elock service from
start -> run -> type in services.msc
look for elock service right click properties startup type disabled and stop the service, on some elocks this is enought to stop it from working. but it debends I can fix this and I have done it many times now..

ok on all desktops there is a jumper on the motherboard conecting 2 out of three pins and on the motherboard it says psswd. power off and unplug it then remove the door on the back where the ram goes ill bet thats where ull find it. take the jumper off and put it on the other pins. boot it up and password should be dissabled go int bios and make sure. u can leave it like this or turn off and replace the jumper. hope this helps.
P.S. if the jumper isnot by the ram check behind any other doors the laptop might have
