SOURCE: Acer TravelMate 5520 is bio-probtected and unknown password

As a general rule, registering with "Acer Standard Registration" is simply putting your computer under Acer's warranty for operation and/or repair if needed; registration almost certainly has nothing to do unlocking your password.

First, without sounding critical, if you didn't set the bio-protection, who did? Or, who had access to your computer that could have set the biometric fingerprint sensor? That person could/should be able to unlock it.

Assuming you've used the computer (and not someone else) and you're not the second register of the computer, you could try contacting Acer at their website and explain your problem and see if they can answer your question.

If the laptop is not originally yours, and the biometric sensor was set by a previous owner, that should solve your problem, having the previous owner "unlock" the system.

If the laptop is not originally yours and you don't know who the previous owner is, there's a good chance that you cannot access the informtion. You could take the laptop to a computer repair outlet that does hard drive repairs, however that is usually not cheap and you might pay for them for an evaluation and find that they cannot unlock the system.

And, there's a chance that you will not be able to reformat the disk; the protection might not allow you to reformat it. Again, you might need to bring it to a computer shop and have them reformat it (or, possibly, install a new hard drive in order to use the computer).

SOURCE: Acer aspire 5520 laptop. Is it dead?

To verify it isn't a battery issue you can try taking the battery out completely and plugging in the A/C adapter and turning it on.

Without more information it's hard it's hard to diagnose your issue more specificially. Do you get any lights on the front?

Acer 5520 travelmate when loading has 2 vista partitions how to delete one

when you boot to your normal partition can you see the other vista drive?

this can be a restore partition so it is worth keeping but to answer your question.

go to my computer right click manage and go to disk management.

in here you should see all your disks like C:\ D:\ and E:\

now when you partition it creates a new drive letter but remains on the same disk. you will have to manually check to make sure which partition you want to delete, once you know right click that partition and click delete

Hi, I have an Acer TravelMate 5520, it will not boot up on the screen. The green power light on the on/off switch,the green light indicated by a lightbulb shape and the green light at the top which is...

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with your notebook.

The book indicator you referenced is the hard drive activity light. When you see this flicker it indicates the hard drive is being accessed.

With the notebook booted up, press Fn+F11 a few times to enable and disable numlock. If the numlock light(lock with the number '1' on it, next to the hard drive indicator) turns on and off then the problem may be only related to your monitor and not a failed hard drive, video adapter, or something like that. Believe it or not this could be a good thing.

With the computer booted up, press Fn+F5 and wait a couple seconds. This will toggle the display modes. Press Fn+F5 a couple more times to cycle through all the modes.

Also try pressing Fn+F6. This keystroke blanks out the display to save battery.

Do you EVER see anything on the screen while the notebook is booting up? You should see the Acer splash screen and maybe some information about entering the BIOS setup.

If you have an external monitor and a VGA cable(or DVI or S-video) you can connect the external monitor to your notebook then turn the notebook on. You may have to do the Fn+F5 keystroke after connecting the monitor to select the correct display mode. This will help us determine if the problem is the notebook monitor or not.

Here is a link to the manual if you need it:

Acer travelmate 5520, when you start is white screen after 20 seconds and stops

Test the laptop with a external monitor see if you get any picture on the external if the external screen remains white then most likely the mainboard or the video adapter (in most cases build into the mainboard) is failing or has failed. One Possible reason could be overheating damage (the unit may not be overheating right now during the 20 seconds, it may have suffered earlier).

It could also be a poor connection between the display and the mainboard. but if the screen works for 20 seconds and then goes white its probably not the issue.

If the external screen works without any problems the issue is most likely your lcd screen or one of the boards inside.

If you are in warranty get in touch with your dealer or acer.
If you are outside of warranty get in touch with acer or a local repairer / acer cervice center.

Why can't I hear audio when I play my cassette player plugged in to the line-in jack of my Acer Travelmate 5520

You need some form of software to port it out. Basically, you can use windows sound recorder and hear it for the duration of the recording and play it back that way but it's only 30 seconds at a time. You need software to feedback the audio all the time. Maybe DJ software or something like that would do the trick.
