I need to access the BIOS of an ACER Aspire 1E 522 laptop before I buy it. The owner has forgotten the PW. The BIOS battery can't be easily accesed keyboard must be removed.

fixya does help people (2,617,864 my self alone ) but to get help require some input from yourself
you will have to take it to a computer repair shop to get the password removed and the bios and the pc will work very well without a bios password
besides the bios password you will need his administrator pass word to open the program

Why is admin PW locked?

BIOS passwords can add an extra layer of security for desktop and laptop computers. They are used to either prevent a user from changing the BIOS settings or to prevent the PC from booting without a password. Unfortunately, BIOS passwords can also be a liability if a user forgets their password, or changes the password to intentionally lock out the corporate IT department. Sending the unit back to the manufacturer to have the BIOS reset can be expensive and is usually not covered in the warranty. Never fear, all is not lost. There are a few known back doors and other tricks of the trade that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS

I have a small red Vernatin USB memory stick and forgot my pass word ! what can I do to get back the content ?

Always backup your files from the USB flash drive to a computer, since these removable drives will always either break, get lost, or get stolen. Sometimes a flash drive will prompt you for a password and there will be an option for giving a HINT. Click on this option and see if you left a hint on the drive. Passwords are there to prevent theives from stealing your personal information and data. There are supposedly applications that can read protected files without the password, do a search on the Internet for one of these.

Forget passord

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also

The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

If you lost windows password, you can go into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password, but you forgot administrator password, that way doesn't work. you must use software to recover administrator password. This method is very easy. You can go to this site

You might need to change your bios settings from ide to sata. Have you already checked the bios settings? If everything is in order you might have a bad board. What have you tried so far?

I like to set the user password in the bios for boot up protection. I enter the pw in the setup but the computer just ignores it and boots without asking
