Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to get this accer aspire one computer back to fact spect forgot the passwards i know we can do it by one of the f' keys don't know which one. can we get some help with this.
I think even with the FKey you're likely to be asked for the password. This is one of the things that makes me hate erasing Acers.
Order a free Ubutu disk. While waiting for it google acer factory password ubutu. The disk can be used to view passwords, but it's a bit technical.
This one issue makes me hate Acer!
(What are the manufacturers thinking! Nobody writes passwords down when they get a new toy! Even if they did, they've always lost it by the time the thing needs to be erased. Enough rant!)

If this is a bios password, then no. The password is embedded in the security chip on the motherboard. These chips are designed so that if you try to remove them without the specialized equipment, they ruin the board, I've tried. IBM can't even get around this password, and when you send it in, they replace the chip. It's cheaper to replace the motherboard than it is to have the chip replaced, considerably cheaper.
Now, if this is a Windows password, then you can either start the machine in safe mode, log in as administrator, and clear any passwords from the user accounts section in the control panel, or you can perform a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

not only do you need to remove the comos battery you have to short out the posts the battery connects to this will remove remaining power stored in any caps connected to the comos circuit after about ten minutes this should clear the comos remove battery unplug charger and remove comos battery the short the comos battery socket. there is still some voltage on the board stored in the capactors this will keep the comos in memory even with out the battery.

Shame on you.
There are password erase programs out there, but they are pretty expensive. Best to take it to a techie who has one, and let them do the dirty work for you. Probably cost you $25 or $30us to have it done.

i believe that's a laptop and there will hardly a jumper pins! if you know a someone who can open (disassamble) the laptop without damaging it, then after disassambling it, locate a button battery and take it out for half a minute, then put it back in, reassemble then power up!
this is a classic way to remove BIOS/CMOS password. However you will need to reset all the BIOS settings yourself.

press the relevant key ( F2, Delete ) or whatever it says when you first turn your laptop on to press to get into the bios and login if you need to ( ie if it prompts you ) and you should be able to disable the passwords in the bios
