    Thanks, I found the solution, a HW Gap shorting point called G77 on the MB.

  • chkonsult Jan 08, 2009

    Actually there was no HW gap to be found on the MB, this is still a problem.

Ran into same problem with 5530 Travelmate and found the Gap terminal by process of elimination is G69. It is located about 1/2 inch to the top right of Ground#8 about 3 inches below the sync fan. It is not well marked (G69 notation is well to the left), but is distinct in that it is 2 triangular orange terminals. I had to scratch the surface a bit and it took 2 or 3 tries to get it, but it finally worked. PC will power right back down when you get it right, next time you restart password is cleared. F2 from post verified no password existed anymore.

Open the Computer up and find the small battery that is attached to the board. If you pull the battery off and let it sit for 30 secs then put it back in and restart the computer the bios should reset itself.

Most direct source would be: support.acer.com where they have a email support page with promised 24 hour turn around time. They should be able to provide you, if you provide the serial number for the unit, with the make of the mainboard used in the unit. Even if they don't supply you directly with the info required on the placement of the CMOS battery on the board a quick trip to the site of the mainboard manufacturer should find the info you require.
