Question about Acer Aspire 5749-6492 Intel Core i3 2350M 2.3GHz Notebook - 4GB RAM, 5
Acer laptops are equipped with a BIOS utility.
The BIOS (which stands for "Basic Input Output System") acts as an interface between the hardware and software installed on the computer.
On some computers, a BIOS password may be required in order to boot the computer and make changes to the BIOS settings.
If you are unable to access the BIOS settings and do not know how to reset the BIOS password, you might be tempted to send the computer back to the manufacturer for repair.
Fortunately, that's not necessary as there is a simple way to do this on your own.
Go to "Start," then perform a search for "Command Prompt."
The Windows Start button is located in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
Double-click on "Command Prompt" to open the application.
You will need to use MS-DOS commands to reset the BIOS password.
Type the following commands one by one in the order shown:
o 70 2E
o 71 FF
Make sure that you are typing the letter "o" and not a zero at the beginning of the second and third commands.
Reboot your computer by clicking "Start," "Shutdown," and then "Restart."
The BIOS password will now be reset to default.
you could download all of these or just one save them to a usb drive for later use if one fails to remove the password
At some stage you might need to press Ctrl+Enter rather than just Enter if on a Dell Latitude E5410
A CMOS BIOS password recovery tool
Editors note: This tool should only be used by experienced computer users.
Please see the enclosed read me if you would like to run it from Windows.
Failure to follow instructions (from Windows) will cause your anti-virus to flag this as a virus.
