We have and acer travel mate laptop and are wondering how to change the settings if it was set to another screen because every time we plug in a cd outlet it causes the screen to go blank because it thinks...


Right-mouse click anywhere on your laptop's "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Does the image show ONE or TWO displays?
If so, reset the laptop's "internal" screen as the "primary" monitor,
and disable "extend my desktop" onto the "secondary" monitor.
Click OK.

Check the bios settings, in boot settings you must set CD unit as first boot device, then you start PC with recovery disk 1 inside.

Can't remember password


BIOS password remove alternatives:

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.


OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password cuz all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt.
The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

I hace a Acer Travel Mate 4001lc, I tried to upgrade the HD from 60 GB to 250GB but the Laptop just recognized 130GB


that sounds like its a limitation of the laptop try updating the bios. if it still stays the same see if you can go into disk management and partition the other half of the drive. it would show up as unpartitioned space.
