Shorting the J3 with a flat screwdriver (held it in place for about 30 secs) worked perfectly for me!

The J3 Clr CMos Jumper can be found underneath the RAM module(s). So open the larg(est) back plate, remover the RAM gently (becareful for static) and short J3.

You can use a screwdriver to connect the 2 points of the cmos jumper for a few seconds. The default password is blank password.

Acer Aspire 5630 - CMOS Jumper J3, Where is it?


Remove all ram memory modules.

The J3 Clear CMOS Jumper is in the middle of the ram memory compartment.

This is a link to a free Service Manual for the Aspire 5630 series of Notebook PC,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-acer

Go down to the second 'paragraph' that begins with Satellite 1200.
Go down to the 8th line in this paragraph. (Begins with 5538)
Go across, and left-click on 5630.

This is a PDF file.
It may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time to download.

Using the PDF file page number box, go to Page 12, or Page 100.
Both pages are an illustration of the Bottom of the motherboard.
J3 is to the right/middle. (Under the ram memory. DIMM 1 and DIMM 2)

How to clear and load cmos default bios parameter for a Aspire 5630 modle no. BL50?


Two methods;

A)
1) Remove ALL power to the laptop, except the CMOS battery.
Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a full count of FIVE seconds.
Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure TWO more times. (Important)

This procedure clears CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
Reinstall power. Install the Battery FIRST, then the AC adapter.


B)
Go into BIOS Setup.

As soon as you press the Power On button, start tapping in 2 second intervals, on three keys at the SAME TIME.

Press all 3 keys at the same time.
CTRL, ALT, and ESC.

No?
Hold the Power On button down for 10 seconds to turn the laptop off.
Wait 30 seconds, turn the laptop back on.

As soon as you press the Power On button start tapping on the F2 key.
(Tap in 2 second intervals)

When in BIOS Setup look at the main page, and towards the bottom.
Here you will see an F key listed that when pressed, will revert BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings. (Generally F6)


C) Remove all power from the laptop.
Lay a towel on a table, and lay the laptop upside down on the towel.

Open the Memory Compartment Panel, and remove all ram memory modules. ('Stick')
Located towards the middle of the ram memory compartment is the J3 jumper.
There is a J3 with a square line going around it.

This jumper is used to clear any settings made, and will go straight back to all factory default settings.
In otherwords if someone set a BIOS password, the J3 jumper will remove it.
Factory setting for BIOS password is no password.

I forgot my acer lab top's password, how do i find it?


There are very ways to clear the bios password to access your computer but lets try a couple that I know about. Your laptop does not have pins and a jumper block but instead it has a small area known as a jumper pad. This pad is directly under the memory modules on the motherboard and is known as J3 which is printed on the motherboard. The jumper is small and what needs to happen is you have to "short" the jumper with two small pins shile powering the laptop up and letting it boot. Once the boot process completes, power down the laptop, remove the jumper and the password and cmos will be clear. replace the memory and reboot, you will have to get back into the bios to reset the time and date.

The other way is to remove the cmos battery or RTC battery for about an hour, this may reset the cmos also but it is not as effective as shorting out the jumper pad which is what that pad is for.

Need to get past the boot password on an acer aspire 5600 with Phoenix bios


If you've forgotten you BIOS password you can easy access the BIOS by reset the CMOS battery and jamper.

The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is.

If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

ACER ASPIRE 4730Z. How do I clear the CMOS (password)?


Below is the steps for clearing the password. Below that is the link for the manual, the picture of the jumper tabs is on pg. 153, good luck

Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check

If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
following steps:
• Power Off a system, and remove HDD, AC and Battery from the machine.
• Open the back cover of the machine, and find out the HW Gap on M/B as picture.
• Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
• Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the
system till BIOS POST finish. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.
• Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
• If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and
try again.
NOTE: The steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).

Is there an overide bios password for my acer travelmate 2450 as i can not access the bios as it asks me for a bios password that i dont have


There is a "jumper" that needs to be shorted and power then applied to the board. Take the memory cover off the bottom of the case, take the first memory stick out, look on the motherboard for a set of points that are labeled J3 or Cmos reset. You will have to hold a thin piece of jumper wire on these points to "short" the connection while power is applied to the board, this will reset the Cmos and clear the password.

System not found and bios password


This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.
A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.

B. By Using Software:

I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

Clear BIOS settings


Flashing BIOS via software

If you have access to the computer when it's turned on, you could try one of those programs that remove the password from the BIOS, by invalidating its memory. However, it might happen you don't have one of those programs when you have access to the computer, so you'd better learn how to do manually what they do. You can reset the BIOS to its default values using the MS-DOS tool DEBUG (type DEBUG at the command prompt. You'd better do it in pure MS-DOS mode, not from a MS-DOS shell window in Windows). Once you are in the debug environment enter the following commands:

AMI/AWARD BIOS
Code: O 70 17
O 71 17
Quit PHOENIX BIOS
Code: O 70 FF
O 71 17
Quit GENERIC
Invalidates CMOS RAM.
Should work on all AT motherboards
(XT motherboards don't have CMOS)
Code: O 70 2E
O 71 FF
Quit
Note that the first letter is a "O" not the number "0". The numbers which follow are two bytes in hex format.
