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....

Where is the bios/cmos battery located on a aceraspire 5315-2698? I cant get past the password screen.


Hi,

The battery in Acer Aspire 5315 is very visible has a blue ring of plastic or rubber around it. follow the leads which are very short and short the circuit. no risk of damage to systemboard)
1. Try to remove cover
2. Find battery on the far right hand of the board
3. Take a small flat screwdriver and contact the two leads from the battery
4. Power it on and power it off to reset the BIOS
5. This should work for passwords
6. Moreover, it resets to default configuration

Please share the results.

You didn't mention what BIOS you have..(re: pheonix or ami or Award) so you can try "BIOS" or "CMOS" or "ACER" or "PASSWORD" or you can remove the CMOS batttery for a few minutes

the password.

3. Select Upper case ACSII Code from the screen that appears. The HDD master password is displayed.
Make a note of this password.
4. Reset your system. When the Enter Primary Master HDD User Password prompt appears, enter the
password you made a note of in step 3.

Have an acer aspire 5315 laptop. I cannot reset the HDD password, so I can get on the computer


Remove the Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.

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. See the below picture for reference
