I could not find that model number computer. There are a couple things you can do:

1) Power down. Remove the power cable. Press and hold the Power On button until the fans stop. Look on your computer motherboard to see if you have PWRD RES pins. This will be 3 pins with a jumper on 2 of them. If the jumper is on pins 1 & 2, place it on pins 2 & 3. If it is on 2 & 3, move it to 1 & 2. Reboot the computer. The password will be reset. Shut it down and move the jumper back to where it was. Not all motherboards have these. If not proceed below.

2) You can take the CMOS battery out for a few minutes. First remove the power cable from the computer. Press and hold the Power On button until the fans stop spinning. (BTW, this discharges the capacitors on the board.) Ground yourself to the case. Pop the battery out for a few minutes. Snap it back in. Connect the power cable. Turn it on. You will need to hit F2 (or whatever key is for your setup) and configure your BIOS for your hardware.

If you are not familiar with working on the inside components or setting up the BIOS, please seek some professional advice from a local computer repair shop.

Pull the CMOS Battery off of the motherboard and let it sit out for a couple hours.  The CMOS battery looks like a large watch battery.  Reseat the CMOS Battery and give that a try.

Acer ferrari i m lost pasword bios do you have backdoor password de acer ferrari?


if you cant remember the bios password then whatevere you do dont use any program that will kill the password. If you do try them when you reboot your laptop will no longer start and the only remedy is to desolder the bios chip and fit a new one, in fact thats basically your only option, if they are available, you will find them on ebay

Unfortunately you must get in touch with acer to reset the password. There is no back door password, those worked in 1999, they are soon 12 year old codes.

I have a acer laptop and i cant remember the password at all. how can i fix the problem at home ?


I'm assuming the password is for your windows login and not a BIOS password.
You can try a reinstall but if you haven't backed up your system you may loose your data.
You can also check out this site for free windows password recovery tools:

Cant remember recovery password for recovery of my acer aspire 3050


I don't think there is a recovery password..It may be the BIOS one ..and asks you that cause it needs to boot from the recovery partition ..try it ..If it is not working ..and you do not remember setting a password for it ..try on the support site ..maybe there is a factory one .....(also try the manual in this case it may be mentioned..)
If you know for sure you inserted a password for it ..and now you can not remember it ..im not sure you will be able to use it ..unless you find a way to eliminate it ..Or ..try to use a recovery disk from now on ..or a boot-able disk with the operation system and install it normally and not from the partition ..
If it is the same with the bios password ..I understood there are ways to remove it ..using either a password generator ..or a master one from the manufacturer support site ..or removing its battery ..(BIOS battery )

I cant remember my password to log into the computer


See if you can access the bios setup - usually F1 or F2 key right at the start up and see if that is where the password issue is. If so, try this:
Tech FAQ Forum members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

Let me know.
