Question about Acer Aspire 5536-5224 Notebook
Bios password lost
Hello Nicholas I,
To reset the BIOS on the ACER unit do the following.
Power off the system, and remove the HDD, AC adapter and battery from the computer. Now open the back cover of the computer and look for the hardware gap on the main board labeled as G106 on the main board. Use an electric conductivity tool like a small flat blade screwdriver to short the two points of the hardware gap. Plug in the AC adapter while retaining the short condition on the hardware gap. Press the power button to turn on the computer until the BIOS POST routine is finished. Finally, remove the tool from the hardware gap. Now restart the system. Press the F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu as the machine is restarting. If there is no password request, the BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, repeat the steps above
and try again. Please notice that this will only clear the BIOS password. If there are other problems please return and post them. Hope that this helps.

The finger print bull is how that password came up for me and they want a 125.00 to remove it. I called the better business bureau and filed a complaint. They shouldn't have any right to control your laptop. I to have a 6292 , took it apart as far as I could and could not find jumper or password. This is a gimmick to make money.

SOURCE: reset bios password or remove
The laptop password cannot be reset by removing the battery and there is no jumper for the CMOS or bios reset. You must go to Acer to obtain the master password as laptop computers have NVRAM (non-volatile RAM) that retains the password forever as an anti-theft protection. Steve Medley
