Computer was locked


Resetting the CMOS password on an Acer Aspire laptop is much more difficult than resetting the password on a desktop.
Disassembly steps vary from model to model, but on most models, you'll have to take apart the computer to access the CMOS battery.
Don't take apart the notebook if you don't have experience disassembling PCs.
After turning off the computer and disconnecting the AC adapter, take out the battery (different from the CMOS battery).
All visible screws must then be removed from the bottom of the notebook.
Remove all components stored to their separate compartments on the base of the notebook.
Turn over and open the PC. Lift up the switch cover and remove the screws securing the keyboard to the PC, if any are visible.
Remove the keyboard.
Remove the screws securing the monitor to the hinges, and then set the monitor aside.
Disconnect all visible cables connected to the motherboard; and then remove the screws from the top cover.
Remove the top cover to reveal the motherboard. Locate and then remove the CMOS battery. Leave it out of the notebook for 24 hours; then reinstall it and reassemble the Acer Aspire.
Other Options
If removing the CMOS battery fails to clear the password, or if you dont feel comfortable with the idea of opening your computer, you might be able to gain access to the computer using a backdoor password.
These special passwords were implemented to allow technicians to access locked computers. Not all models recognize backdoor passwords.
Most Acer Aspires use the Phoenix BIOS, and backdoor passwords for this BIOS include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix and PHOENIX.
All of these passwords are case-sensitive.

Bios lockout


If their is no password on your BIOS boot into BIOS and go to "Reset to Factory Defaults". If their is a PW you don't know you will have to remove the screws and clips that hold the keyboard on. Pull the keyboard up and underneath you will see the CMOS battery which looks like a watch battery. Pull it out and leave it out for 30 minutes or longer to allow the capacitors to drain. replace the battery and the keyboard and you should be back to factory defaults for the BIOS.

Acer travelmate 2700 bios password and where is the CMOS battry on the mother board


Hi there,

your bios battery is soldered into the mainboard, its under the keyboard, next to the modem board and the bios chip itself.


10_9_2011_7_43_59_am.jpg

In order to get to the battery you would first have to dissasemble the laptop, remove the keyboard, power buttons, and the top of the machine. You may also have to remove the display if its holding the top of the cover in place.

Removing the battery is no guarantee of reseting the password. You need to study the bios chip and find out which pins of it you need to short in order to reset its memory. In some cases the password might be stored on another chip.

I have a Wipro Laptop. His BIOS is Phoenix. It has a CMOS password. How shall I clear the password.\?


Hi Nayanranjani.

As you trying to reset the BIOS password, let me provide the required steps.

You may reset the BIOS password by just removing and inserting the CMOS Battery.

The CMOS Battery will have the Computer date, time and also the BIOS password saved in it.

Hence, removing and re-inserting the CMOS password will reset the BIOS password.

Once the BIOS password is removed, you may assign a new BIOS password.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

My laptop keyboard not work at booting time


Hello,
I would first try to reset the CMOS according to the manufacturer's instructions provided on the manual.
Try that, and please report back the results.

You might wonder what is CMOS?
Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS)
is a type of semi-conductor chip that holds data without requiring an external power source. In a personal computer (PC), CMOS holds the basic instructions the computer needs to initialize its hardware components and boot up. These settings are known as the basic input output settings (BIOS), also referred to as CMOS settings.

Steps to Reset CMOS - BIOS Setting.
Turn on your computer and press the key on your keyboard to enter the BIOS. This is typically the Del (delete) key. Pre-built systems from major manufacturers may use a function key such as F1, F2, or F10. Go to the last tab or page of your BIOS. Select an option similar to "restore factory settings". Save your changes and confirm your selection if necessary. This will often be combined with the process of exiting a BIOS. Some BIOS types may have this as a separate option such as "F10: Save Changes".
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.
