Unplug the computer from wall. Open the computer case, locate the CMOS battery (looks like a fat quarter) pull the battery out for 10 seconds and put the battery back in. This will remove the password from BIOS.

I just bought Acer Aspire Netbook, I have forgotten my password and cannot get into anything. What can I do??


If it is the logon-password for Windows, re-install the Operating System, and set a new password.

If it is the power-on password, find the original sales-receipt, and telephone ACER, to prove that you, and not a thief, is in possession of your computer, and ACER will assist you.
