How to bypass password request when pressing f2 on an acer 4720?


Good Day!!
Follow this advice but you have to be careful because it may create further damage....

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables . The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 5 - 10minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.

Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

Hope it will help you.....

I have a Dell laptop that will not boot up. It requests theBIOS password but ive lost it


According to the following website...
Dell Inspiron BIOS Password Recovery

Each Dell Inspiron has a master password that clears the BIOS password. Call Dell Technical Support at (800)624-9896 to get this number.

Dell Technical Support will request the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the bottom of the Inspiron.

If the current user is not the original Inspiron owner, Dell will transfer the used Inspiron's registration from the original owner with only the Service Tag and Express Service Code from the tag on the laptop.

To transfer a used Dell Inspiron's registration, fill out the Transfer of Ownership form on Dell's web site. See... http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-dell-bios-password.html

I am not able to remove bios password. i had removed the battery for a couple of hours, but still there is a password. i had corrupt my windows 7 and can boot from cd rom bcoz there is a bios password.


If the BIOS password cannot be remembered, the unit will need to be sent in for password removal. This service is not covered under warranty and charges will apply to have the password removed.

Please go to Fix My Acer and set the unit up for service requesting BIOS password removal. In the description please use the following: "Requesting BIOSpassword removal".

Note: This is for the BIOS password only and does not include the Windows login password. Acer does not remove Windows login passwords.

HP zv5000 request Power on Password


It seems that a bios password keeps you locked out. Try entering the bios (del or F2 during the boot) and get back to defaults or reset the password.

Bios password


You will need the BIOS password to enter the BIOS setup.
To do a hardware reset remove the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes. Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.
After you enter BIOS, go to the Boot tab and down to "Security" and make your changes there.
If you need help with the default password, please re-post your request.
Thanks and good luck.

Password on bois


When I lost my windows password, I like to reset Windows Password with Windows Password Reset 9.0 and I think it is excellent and professional!
Once the password is removed, there is no need to type any passwords but to leave it blank, and click the user name to instantly log on Windows.

It sounds as if this is a BIOS password request.

Has anyone been changing setting in the BIOS recently?

Occasionally, static or electrical interference can cause a BIOS password to reset to it's default.

Bypassing the BIOS password is not easy, but is possible. First of all, I would suggest you try some of the common manufacturers default passowrda. You can find lists here and here.


Failing that, there are software programs available to recover/reset lost BIOS password or you can manually reset the BIOS. Details of how you do this are here and here.

If you are not 100% sure what you are doing, I would not advise you to reset your BIOS. There are setting in here that you will need to set in order for your computer to work properly. Wrong values could prevent it from working at all, or could even cause permanent damage.

Google for 'reset bios password' - You'll find lots more information...

Hope this helps,
