The link above is an excellent article on the different ways to reset a BIOS password. The easiest way of course is just removing the battery but as it mentions, doesn't always work. Depending on your comfort level with getting into the innards of your PC, the jumper settings are next, followed by password reset software.
Let me know if you have any further questions regarding this. Thanks for using Fixya.com and please rate our help accordingly!

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.

My acer laptop travelmate 2413lmi demanded for a password. i`ve not been able to pass through this stage despite all efforts.Right now the system can not boot without the password.


Hello capstone08,

Can you tell me which version of BIOS you have on your laptop, AWARD BIOS, AMI BIOS, PHOENIX BIOS, etc? If you have AWARD BIOS, here was a universal password for some versions of Award BIOS .The password is: AWARD_SW

Try THIS link, or THIS ,they may help..

If you know how to open up your laptop and reassemble it, you can try to remove the CMOS battery for about 15-20 mins to reset the password. The CMOS battery looks almost like watch battery...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.

if all else fails, you may have to send it to an ACER repair depot, for which they will charge you $100.
Here is a copy of an email from Acer Support:
"Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays."

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied. If not, please post back as to what you did, and/or any other questions you may have, and I will try to assist you as best I can. Please do not assign an ‘Inappropriate’ or ‘Thanks for trying’ rating if your issue is not resolved after the first response itself, as sometimes a bit of to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can find a fix or an answer to your query.

How to open Acer Extensa 5420 hard drive bay.


Actually since the Acer Extensa is more of a home use computer, it is not quiet as simple as working on business laptops. With the Extensa you have to remove the large panel on the bottom of the laptop that is held by 7 screws. The panel has 4 sets of vents in it and a 1 inch square rubber foot in the center. The screws do not completely come out as they appear to be fastened to the panel. Once you have loosed all 7 screws, there is a small place to insert your finger nail on the side close to the Windows Vista Certificate sticker. Just lift up on the panel easily as there are plastic tabs holding the panel still. Once you remove the panel, there is is only two screws holding the hard drive in place. Remove the two screws and slide the hard drive toward the back of the laptop. Done.
