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 reset the bios on an acer aspire idea 510


Insert the original "System Restore" CD/DVD into the CD/DVD drive.
Restart the computer.
Press a key to "change boot order".
Choose to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
Does your computer start to read the disk, and start to load something?

If so, then there's _nothing_ wrong with your computer that _WOULD_ be corrected by doing a "reset" of the BIOS. Put differently, try a "reset" of the BIOS *ONLY* as the _LAST_ thing that you try.

It's more likely that your 'C:' drive has a problem that prevents Windows from loading.

Take your computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.

Can't remember password


BIOS password remove alternatives:

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.


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.

Password retreval or bypass


f you need to bypass the BIOS password - assuming that this is a desktop pc, you need to remove either the BIOS battery from the motherboard or switch the bios reset jumper to another position for a while and then back, I can help you more with that if you first clarify is this a bios password or not and then is the computer a laptop or a desktop pc.
