SOURCE: stiff hinge pin

These systems use a pretty generic hinge set-up. These can be dealt with in two ways, one involving a safer method for future adjustments. The hinges are two separate bars on each side of the monitor with friction cuffs that use the tension between their two pieces to hold the monitor stiff. Generally my experience with Acer models is that they ALL ship with pretty stiff hinges, which is a double-edged blade. Stock hinges that don't click when fresh have a tendency to need replacing after a couple years, where as my acer TM4K hinges are still strong today after 4. The best way to loosen these babies up is to just use it. About an average of 75 open/close cycles break in the hinge to where it stays nice & tight, but stops clicking or cracking. The other way, which is for those who are afraid the LCD housing will crack it's so tight, is to take the monitor off, but not apart, carefully using two pairs of needle-nose pliers, hold steady the monitor end with one set and with the other, flex the flat end of the now loose hinge back and forth as far as you can get it to move until you feel it is to the right strength.

It helps to mention that too little is better than too much, as I see a good amount of people burnt out with their Compaq Evo & Presario (ca.2001-2) hinges, falling to the ground soon as you let it go, only 6 months after their last replacement set.

SOURCE: change or remove BIOS password

Hi Michael,

ready for a challenge?

This homepage hold a load of Backdoor passwords, - one of them will bypass you forgotten BIOS password. If you don’t know your type, you´ll have to try them all out, or until you hit the right one:
http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000451.htm




If the above doesn’t work, try this:
!BIOS, download from here:
http://www.technibble.com/downloads/misc/BIOS320.EXE

!BIOS will recover the BIOS password for most common BIOS versions, including IBM, American Megatrends Inc, Award and Phoenix.
CmosPwd will recover the BIOS password for the following BIOS versions:


ACER/IBM BIOS
AMI BIOS
AMI WinBIOS 2.5
Award 4.5x/4.6x/6.0
Compaq (1992)
Compaq (New version)
IBM (PS/2, Activa, Thinkpad)
Packard Bell
Phoenix 1.00.09.AC0 (1994), a486 1.03, 1.04, 1.10 A03, 4.05 rev 1.02.943, 4.06 rev 1.13.1107
Phoenix 4 release 6 (User)
Gateway Solo - Phoenix 4.0 release 6
Toshiba
Zenith AMI
Download !BIOS and save it to your desktop. Then, open a DOS command windows by going to
Start -> Run and type: cmd
Once you see a black screen in front of you, type: cd desktop
You should now see something like: C:Documents and SettingsYourUserNameDesktop>
Now type the name of the file you just downloaded, if you haven’t changed the name just type in: bios320.exe

Use the down arrow and choose “Crackers” and then press the right arrow. Using the up and down arrows, select the BIOS that the motherboard is using and press Enter.
You should now see a menu asking what you want to crack, in most cases its the Supervisor or System Passwords you want to crack, so press the 1 key on your keyboard. It will then show you another menu asking how you want it to be cracked. Option 1 is pretty good so try that first by pressing the 1 key on your keyboard. You should now have your BIOS password.
Reboot the computer, enter the BIOS and try it out.

NOTE: Because of this applications password cracking abilities, some anti-virus software may report it as a virus/trojan. This is a false positive.

If the above doesn’t work, try this crack link:
BIOS password crack, download from here:

Good Luck

SOURCE: reset bios password or remove

Search for !BIOS,
or
remove the battery on the laptop's motherboard, wait a few minutes, then reinsert the battery,
or
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.

SOURCE: black screen on acer aspire one series zg5

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.

Screen hinges very loose


If you pop off the plastic casing around the keyboard, you should see two screw ends on the hinges that should allow you to tighten the friction of the hinges themselves. Be careful to remove all the necessary screws from the underside of the laptop before removing the plastic case.

Acer hinges hard to open google says known issues,will not fix says normal already cracked case above left cant figure how to open


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

To your concern; hinge repair is relatively easy, what is more challenging is opening the lid and figuring out how to improve the hinge action to reduce the stiffness of closing the lid. For a pictorial illustration on how to open the lid cover to expose the hinge, please reference this page. For a generic how-to on hinge repair, pls check this out.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
