Somehow the BOIS password has been enabled. If you dont know this password then you going to prob have to take to a computer shop unless you know how to access the motherboard and remove the cmos battery and short the terminals for 10 seconds. this will erase the memeory and reset the bois to default which doesnt require a password.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Aspire 5315-2326 enter Current password problem

i think is a factory fault most systems comes with factory passwords like that.
now u must find out if its a hard drive password which i dont think is thru.if its a bios password then u will need to erase the bios chips which is a risky thing to do if u r not an expert.
my advise,
hard drive password can not be recovered all u do is change a hard drive.

bios password can be erased if u meet an expert.
i suggest u give them d 100 dollrs n get it fixed.
hope this helps

You should contact Acer. They know they have a display problen with the Acer Aspire One that can be fixed with a BIOS upgrade. We got our done. They sent us a USB thumb drive with the files and instructions on how to boot the thumb drive. After a couple of minutes the Acer restarted and all is fine.

Check that the password you entered was not in Caps. If you have entered the right code but being told invalid then do a bios reset. Thank you.

Enter current password on boot on acer aspire 5253g


If the pc doesn't have a BIOS password then:
1.- look at the error messages on the blue screen,
2.- the blue screen shows errors when a driver is bad or not the right one for the hardware or the OS is corrupted.
3.- try to boot using safe mode.
4.- after the logo and right after it shows the F2/F10/F12 key start tapping the F8 continuosly. If your here a beep stop tapping.

Hello, I own an acer aspire one ZG5 netbook, and today I got an error while trying to start it, the blue screen to be exact. Here's the error: A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to...


Hi Stefi,

An unmountable boot volume error means that the operating system cannot boot from the hard drive either because the boot files are corrupted, the hard drive is faulty or there is a problem with the cable connecting the hard drive to the computer. If you are booting your PC and come across a Blue Screen of Death stating UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME, don't despair.

You would need to repair the volume inorder to fix this issues.

To repair the volume, follow these steps:

  1. Start your computer by inserting the Windows startup disks or the Windows installation disk if your computer can start from the CD drive.
  2. When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to select the repair option.
  3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted to do this.

    Note If no administrator password exists, press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, on the drive where Windows is installed, type chkdsk /r, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER to restart your computer.
  7. After you repair the volume, check your hardware to isolate the cause of the file system damage.
If this procedure does not work, repeat it, but type fixboot instead of chkdsk /r in step 5.


Hope this helps .
Please let me know if you need further help

Hello i have an Acer Aspire One model zg5 netbook


You're going to need to boot it from the Windows XP installation disk, which means if you don't have a CD drive you'll need to get an external CD-ROM drive. This will fix the problem.

Go back into your BIOS, set the settings to default, save changes and exit. Put the Windows in the cd and restart the notebook. You should get a screen that have :to boot from cd, press any key...." From there, follow instructions. This should do the trick. Good Luck.
