You can go to BIOS setting and reset to factory default.

or use this to software if you forgot the BIOS password

This removes bios password from any Dell machine. unrar it and Burn the Boot CD, and then Boot to it.

Hi, the cmos battery is not under the keyboard, take the side off your PC and on the motherboard, (the first thing you should see) there should be a 3 volt battery (about the size of a 20 cent coin), remove to reset cmos. If you need any more help locating the motherboard just ask, Cheers

Reset bios password


You'll need to find out which screws hold the keyboard in. Usually three or four and are on the bottom of the laptop. After unscrewing them you'll have to pry off the plastic part (carefully) that is just under where your laptops screen is. Then you will see two, three, or four screws that hold the keyboard in. Unscrew those, then gently lift up the keyboard and you should see a small round button battery somewhere on the exposed part. That is the CMOS/BIOS battery. (Note you might have to take more screws out on the back if the battery is hidden under a part, but usually it is visible and you can get to it) remove that battery for 1/2 hour or longer, and put it back. This usally will reset the bios and its password. Also note tho, that some newer boards that won't work on, and you'll need to buy software especially for reseting the password in the BIOS. Youtube has some 'videos' that advertise those softwares. Try the battery thing first tho. If uncomfortable doing that first part to get to the battery yourself, you will want someone who knows how to take apart a laptop to do it for you.

Bios password removals


The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to

physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then

removing Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard.


You need to open the PC case, then look for a 20mm (3/4") shiny lithium button cell.

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself.

Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the

BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip.

So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop -

If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch

(almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.

Clearing cmos


The BIOS battery maybe under one of the panels on the bottom of the laptop or under the keyboard.
To reset the BIOS ack to the default settings, go into the BIOS configuration and look at the various configurations, usually there is a setting to load the Default settings, then save and exit, and this would not change the Date & Time setting.
The other way to set the BIOS default setting is to remove the BIOS battery (it is probably a lithium 3volt button battery), wait 1/2 hour and replace the battery, the go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date & Time setting etc.

Try to clean the Cmos password from acer aspire 5315


What ever you do, do not use soap and water!!

Really, this is a little tough. There is a jumper someplace close to the cmos battery that will allow you to clear the password. First thing you have to do is find the cmos battery, and it could be under the keyboard, or under a cover on the bottom of the machine.

Looked for a service manual for you, but unable to come up with one.

Keyboard and mouse not working


it is likely the keyboard or mouse is putting out erroneous data and windows is then ignoring the ports,
try disconnecting the mouse pad or the keyboard and run with only one connected at a time if re-seating them has no effect.

there is sometimes a combo of software that may also effect the keyboard mouse input.
click on run / type msconfig
uncheck load startup group items.
click ok,
restart , check don't show this again.
and test system.
