Re: Acer Aspire 4315 BIOS Recovery
Hi there. After using killcmos you should have updated the bios straight away, this is because you have wiped all the bios settings. As soon as you restarted the laptop you effectively killed the computer, getting it recovered can now prove near impossible. The only option you have left now is to locate the bios battery, remove it for an hour to see if the bios resets, other than that Acer may be able to help.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If computer will not boot.

Recommend you use the first option if you can...
1. Power on the machine.
2. At the ACER BIOS screen, hold the "Alt" key and press the "F10" key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery. The window of opportunity is very small, so this may take a few attempts.
3. Once eRecovery has loaded, click "Restore to Factory Default Settings" (the password is six zeros, 0.0.0.0.0.0.).
4. Click "OK" to continue.
5. From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore the factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
6. Once eRecovery has run, press "OK" to reboot unit.
***This will erase all your unsaved data!***

I fix laptops and when I get an Acer laptop locked with an unknown bios password I use www.unlockbiosrecovery.com to get the bios master password for only $20 which clears any set bios password and they guarantee it to work. I have unlocked a dozen or so Acver laptops with unlockbiosrecovery.com bios password recovery service.
You will need to reboot your computer. While it is booting up press and hold the "ALT" key and then keep tapping F10 at the same time. This will bring you to a screen that says something like "loading files" or "starting recovery". It will ask you how you would like to restore your computer. Choose "Restore to factory default". It should take about 20 minutes and once it's done it will be back to the way it was when you purchased it. It WILL delete all of your data so ensure you have a back up before you do this.
I hope this helps! If this did help you, please give a thumbs up!
plug in the Notebook to a power socket with your adapter. Power on the
Notebook and you will see the Acer splash
screen. Immediately press ALT and keep tapping F10 at the same time. It
will take you to a screen where you will see
"windows is loading files" or "starting acer recovery" it will ask you,
how do you want to restore?" choose
the option "restore to factory default" and click continue. It will go
through the restore process and within 15 - 20 minutes it should finish
the process. Your Notebook will be back to factory default settings.
Try booting into safemode(tap the F8 key during bootup) till you get to a black screen,you should see the option "Restore to factory settings"...highlite that and press ENTER,that will put your computer back to the way you had it when you first got it.Please let me know how you make out..good luck :)
