Be VERY VERY wary if your bios suddenly asks for a password without you setting one. A blue screen which is then followed by the bios asking for a password could very well be the result of an attempt (successful or not) by malicious software to embed itself in your bios. This specialised attack is un-dettectable by anti-virus programs because it resides on the motherboards BIOS E_PROM and survives even if the hard-drive is replaced and a clean OS is loaded.
This sort of attack isn't from people interested in using your computer as a mere spam-bot, it's far, far, far more serious than that. I'll say no more!

I know this is an old thread but people with the same problem in future will see this while searching for similar problems.

SOURCE: how to break bios password

Continue with a blank password field, since none was manually set.

If that doesn't work, locate the BIOS battery and remove it for several minutes and replace it, that should flash the BIOS to default.

Try installing the drivers from the Acer website. The link is

Select Notebook>TravelMate>TravelMate C110
Under the drivers tab, you will find all the drivers you need for your laptop. Don't forget to select the Operating system or else the drivers will not show up.

I have a acer travelmate c110 and I am trying to connect to a wireless connection but the wireless switch is not on and I do not know how to turn it on. Please help.


There should either be a physical switch somewhere on the side of the laptop or by using the FN + a certain key to activate it. Look at the F keys for an image similar to wireless then try that. If the above does not work, its probably turned off in the BIOS. Access BIOS and turn it on.

Cannot connect the bluetooth. when I attempted to connect using the Wireless LAN, it complained that it is looking for a certificate and about 5 minutes later, the screen turns blue with and error message...


Enable both wireless units (Bluetooth & Wireless LAN) in BIOS settings. If bluetooth doesn't work for an Acer supplied driver refer to DriverMax online drivers. It could rectify the problem.

Acer travelmate C110 & Acer projector X11602


Hi Andrew,

you can try changing the output of the travelmate, to VGA Or External Device.
ensure you have the correct output lead from computer to projecter. Then on your keyboard you should have a button that changes the output. i.e numerical 5-6-7 or 8. usually says LCD/VGA et,c.
failing this try altering the output in the systems bios setup.
you can enter this by pressing F2 Or esc at bootup.
if your unsure, and none of this helps, i,d suggest visiting acers site. and downloading the user manual(s)
