This is for the Bios Password. Inorder to reset the password, you must open the case, and on the Motherboard there is a round battery. Its the size of a nickel. In some cases you can just remove the battery and wait a few seconds and then replace it.
Another alternative is to short some pins that will clear the bios password. In close proximity to that battery you should find a set of pins. Normally there are 3 pins together and there will be a jumper on one end of the 3 pins. What you have to do is to remove the jumper and move it to the other end of the pins. In other words if the pins are labeled 1-2-3 and right now there is jumper on 2 and 3., Then you will remove the jumper from there and place it on pins 1 and 2. Once doing so will reset the password on the bios. Wait a minute and then replace the jumper on 2 and 3. And then you should have your problem resolved....

Forgot my password but i don't have the discs


Hello,

You can clear the password with a program like active@ password changer. It is a bootable cd that will allow you to clear a windows user password. You can purchase it from their website at www.password-changer.com If you forgot a BIOS password, then you will have to sent it to Acer to have it cleared. They charge $100 for this service in Canada.

Hope this helps!

I forgot the BIOS password someone told me to remove battery and put it back but i cant find the battery


The BIOS Battery, to be precise CMOS battery looks like:

When your PC is turned off, your computer saves information about time, bios options and others with the help of CMOS battery. Try to remove it, wait a few minutes and set it back again. This action might cause to reset your BIOS password.

How don i bypass a password and get into my computer without loosing all my memeory


When you boot up look at the boot screen and see which f key allowes you to enter the BIOS.
You will miss it first time round buts its normally F12.
If you miss it (it will be top right on the maufactures splash screen i.e, first screen) once you know it rebbot and press that key
Enter the BIOS and so long as you know the password you can remove it or replace it.
Hope this helps.

OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password cuz all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt.
The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

Need bious password for acer 5315


To reset your BIOS you will need to remove both the battery and the BIOS battery, however unless the latter is easly accessed, I would recommend you seek a professionals help. having removed both batteries, the PC should be left for a few hours. then refit both batteries. If this does not work, then the password is "locked" into the bios chip. Your only option then is to contact the person who entered the password in the first place.

My acer laptop travelmate 2413lmi demanded for a password. i`ve not been able to pass through this stage despite all efforts.Right now the system can not boot without the password.


Hello capstone08,

Can you tell me which version of BIOS you have on your laptop, AWARD BIOS, AMI BIOS, PHOENIX BIOS, etc? If you have AWARD BIOS, here was a universal password for some versions of Award BIOS .The password is: AWARD_SW

Try THIS link, or THIS ,they may help..

If you know how to open up your laptop and reassemble it, you can try to remove the CMOS battery for about 15-20 mins to reset the password. The CMOS battery looks almost like watch battery...Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

if all else fails, you may have to send it to an ACER repair depot, for which they will charge you $100.
Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
"Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal.
