If you have a floppy drive that might work to reset the password.

I need to access the BIOS of an ACER Aspire 1E 522 laptop before I buy it. The owner has forgotten the PW. The BIOS battery can't be easily accesed keyboard must be removed.


fixya does help people (2,617,864 my self alone ) but to get help require some input from yourself
you will have to take it to a computer repair shop to get the password removed and the bios and the pc will work very well without a bios password
besides the bios password you will need his administrator pass word to open the program

Keyboard does not write letters in device ownership password


If on windows then for as a temporary solution, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Ease of Use, On Screen Keyboard and then simply click on your password letters to enter it. As once the on screen keyboard is on then your computer can also enter the text from there.

Now, to your problem, if you are able to write the password using the On Screen keyboard and your keyboard is working fine else where then this is a misbehavior and can occur on Windows O/S. My suggestion would be to Restore your Computer to default Factory Setting and see if it works. As this is a good and quick solution for this problem. Else you can use the above method anytime to write anything if your keyboard is not responding to a particular event.

I password my laptop (samsung R510) and one of the key I used is not working and I got an external USB keyboard by the keyborad is not working with, what will I do to used the external keyboard


your USB keyboard may not work because your laptop has not got to the point of initiating USB at the point of booting to password.
You could try using ascii codes to eneter the key
at the point where you need to enter the key that doesnt work press your numlock button this will turn some of your letters into numbers...they should be written on the keys in a different colur...the laptop Im looking at at the moment has 4 on U, 5 on I 6 on O, 1 on J etc...
hopefully these are not the broken key..
if you look here you will see the chart that says A=65 B=66 etc in order
http://www.asciitable.com/

find the letter you need eg v=118 in lower case
type in your password till you get to the v (if thats the broken letter)
press and hold [ALT] button with num lock on and on your newley formed number pad type in the number thet represent the letter in this case 118 when you release the [ALT] key it will insert that letter.
however this only works with an extended keypad (like a full size keyboard) where the numbers are seperate not your top row numbers which is why you need your numlock on.

if it does then work maybe you could go into your bios and turn USB legacy support on...which may then help your full size keyboard to work too.

Keyboard letter not working


Disabling just a single key on Windows is possible, but it is highly unlikely that a computer technician could have gone to Control Panel to remap the keyboard.

More likely, one of the keyboard switches is broken, and the A letter is not working anymore. This happens quite commonly, and when the problem occurrs, the keyboard will be replaced.

You can find out if problem is hardware or software going to CMOS settings, and chosing to set a password. Then setting BIOS password AAA. If the A letter works in there, then the problem is software, and it can be fixed reinstalling Windows, if A key does not work in BIOS settings, then the keyboard must be replaced.

The keyboard for an Acer 5315 is not an expensive part, and can be purchased for less than $20.

If a repair job had recently been done, and the laptop came back withthe keyboard problem, try calling back the repairman, and insisting for having the repair done at a reduced fee.

My home row keys (and only those 8) do not work.


Unfortunately, this is most likely a bad keyboard and the keyboard will need to be replaced. In the meantime, you can use a USB keyboard in its place.

Have an IBM ThinkPad T30 2366 Notebook. Windows boots up. I do the normal Ctrl-Alt-Del and then presented with Windows login screen. My problem is that 1 letter on each row of the keyboard does not work...


Hi there.
Keyboards tend to do this from time to time, and is quite common.
You can use a USB keyboard to access your PC until you have a replacement keyboard for the laptop.
If the USB keyboard is not recognized hit F2 (on start up), enter the bios and set it to defaults, save the changes and exit, the computer will restart and you should be able to use a USB keyboard to access your account.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

How do you unlock a few locked keys on my laptop


Can you tell me whether this is a bios power on password, a hard drive lock password, or a windows administrative operating system password? I'm assuming that it is asking for a password when you say "locked".
