Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
Acwe screen pops up for 3 seconds then goes to black screen with a blue box , enter current password. will not accept my password, after 3 tries it says password faild system halted. acer sent a new hard drive today and still the same problem.
Problem is not your hard drive it is your BIOS. You need to take it to a professional or a community college and ask them to clear your bios for you or reset it. This is part of an onboard hardware issue and should be fixed by a professional.

Boot up or restart your Toshiba laptop.
Immediately and repeatedly tap the F2 key on your keyboard until the start screen appears to change your BIOS (user) and supervisor
(HDD user) passwords.
Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight "Set User Password" or "Set HDD User Password" and press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Type the current password in the box that appears.
Type your new password ox.
You will be asked to enter your new password a second time to confirm it.
