    I have the same problem & when I called cusomer support I was told that I would have to send it back to them an have the bios chip unsoldered and get a new one put on for a cost of $ 150.00. If that is the case I will be getting my money back and never buying anything from acer again.

    I am taking it back in the new year to see what the outcome will be. I only had the computer for a few days. The password I put in for the setup does did not work and I am not even sure why it is going into the setup password in the first place.
