If you get a post screen that means the board is most likely fine, if its a desktop motherboard all you have to do to wipe the password is clear the cmos, like this >>>>Acer Motherboard - 19e3610.jpg if you don't have a jumper (the green plastic cap) then remove the battery for 10 mins, make sure there is no mains power connected, this should wipe the password and all you have to do is set the time and date and your ready to format and install an OS

    ok, with it being a HDD password you will have to locate the cmos battery and take it out for 10 mins and hope it wipes the password, if nor take the drive out connect it to another pc as a slave drive and format it again, these drives are known as PATA drives P meaning password protect, this information is usually held in the bios and can be wiped from there, try to format on another machine first before you take the laptop apart to get to the cmos battery

Plz give me password for Acer Extensa 5620z , error 11074 for BIOS thx

You will have reset the password manually by reseting the CMOS memory. Locate the CMOS reset pins and jumper on the motherboard. With the computer disconnected from the mains slide the jumper off pins 1 and 2, place it on pins 2 and 3, wait 10 seconds and return the jumper back to the original position. Reboot the pc and this should have removed the password.

I have a laptop acer extensa 5230E, and i want to reset default bios becose i forgot my password

What you could try is to carefully take off the keyboard and look for a little battery on the mainboard of the laptop. Carefully take it out and place it back in the right way.
Make sure that you don't leave stains or greasemarks on the battery.
With kind regards,
