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

Acer extensa 5620 laptop will not boot uo


Then you can check 2 things to see if the machine will boot. If not, then you'll need to get it repaired. FYI, I repair Acers.

Step 1 - remove the battery and the A/C adapter from the back of the computer for about 2 minutes. Replace the battery and the adapter and try to start the machine. If that doesn't work, go to step 2.

Step 2 - Check that the A/C adapter is getting power and the LED for battery charging on the front of the computer lights. You can check the voltage from the power supply with a volt meter, if you have one -- it should read around 18-19 volts. If either of these steps don't work, you'll need to get it looked at.

Problems could be with the power supply, motherboard, power switch, CPU or something else that only time and expertise could properly track down.

If its asking for a password to thehard drive no replacing the motherboard wont solve this because the password is on the hard drive itself.
