Question about Acer Aspire 6930-6941 Notebook
We lost the BIOS password. How do you fix it?
Completely wrong! I am trying to reset the superviser password which enables you to reset boot sequence etc at the moment most everything is greyed out and one most have the supervisers password; not! the user password; hard drive password or windows log in pass word ! Pressing f8 several times does not work and the cmos battery is nowhere to be seen ;not under wireless card or memory chips so how about someone who knows what is what coming up with real info! Using third party programes to reset windows password ineffectual as the computer must boot up from a usb stick with appropriate software to interrogate the password but I cannot alter boot sequence as of now! we are now talking about the candy windows password not the bios passwords that originally gave me this problem as I sent the computer back in time to an earlier config but the password went into the ether! ok. I tried all the old passwords all to no avail!. All this to see if the wireless card was working as it seem to be away without leave! or my modem /router is kaput in the wireless department! There is a hint of an advanced Bios setup but can't access it!

SOURCE: how to reset password
To set the bio password, follow the following:
As soon as your laptop powers up, hold F2 until the ACER logo appears. Now press the right arrow on your keyboard twice to go to the: "MAIN" tab. Now press enter. You will be asked to enter the new password twice along with the original one. (if you previously had a password.). Now scroll down to where it says either: "Enabled" or "Disabled". If it is: "Disabled", press enter and select "Enabled". Exit the BIOS saving changes.

The only idea I have is to find and disconnect the CMOS back-up battery after removing main battery and unplugging the AC adapter. That SHOULD clear the bios completely, wiping out the password, the date, and everything else.
I know this works on desktops, and most laptops, but no promises, and the cmos battery may not be easy to access.
You should probably leave the battery unhooked for at least 1-2 minutes to be sure it clears.
Hope this is some assistance!

SOURCE: reset bios password or remove
Search for !BIOS,
remove the battery on the laptop's motherboard, wait a few minutes, then reinsert the battery,
Read your laptop's manual and find a BIOS reset jumper, and put a piece of metal between the two prongs to reset the BIOS.
