Hi slakx!

This is an easy fix and should take about 15 minutes. First, make sure the PC is off. Remove the cover and look for a battery the size of a quarter. Usually it's held in place by a metal tab that sticks up from the battery holder. By pushing it slightly away from the battery, you can pry it out of place. It may take two hands to get it out. Leave the battery out for at least five minutes, then pop it back in. That should reset your BIOS.

Please rate my fix. It's important to me. Thanks!

It is far easier just to go back to defaults for the bios ,because otherwise you have to reload just about every other setting and sometimes it,s just not possible. to do that restart , press delete key that will get you into the bios and just press default.it will reset itself,this will solve most of your problems ,sometimes not all.but at least it will get you back on the net go to the m/b mfr and load the updates available

How to bypass bios password


BIOS passwords can be reset or removed in two ways:

1. using software 2. using hardware.

I would first try resetting or removing using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

!BIOS - is a PC BIOS toolkit offering password removal/decrypt and BIOS settings modification/backup/restore.
You can download it here:

CmosPwd - Cmos password recovery tools
http://majorgeeks.com/CmosPwd_d239.html

You will need to create a bootable Dos, or Linux or NT cd in order to run them.

Good Luck!

Hi,
I just got my 5720-4126 so once I had to test the Factory re-install (ALT-F10 at the ACER screen) and knew I could get back to where I started (Vista), tried to install XP from CD. It couldn't even see the disk drive :-(
