Question about Acer Computers & Internet
I have an Acer Aspire 3100 configured by Sultex PC in Kentucky now out of business, I cannot boot from any external device and cannot enter the bios setup to enable that function. It has a Phoenix Trusted Core NB Bios version 1.90. I've tried the backdoor passwords to no avail. Does this laptop have a cmos clear jumper on it or a removable battery or is there a way to identify the Motherboard?
The cmos battery is soldered on mainboard if you know what are you doing and can disassemble the laptop just short the battery terminals for 1-2 seconds and that should clear all settings here is a photo http://mainboard.en.alibaba.com/product/624925883-213834902/laptop_motherboard_for_ACER_ASPIRE_3100_series_LA_3121P_AMD_NON_INTEGRATED_ATI_Radeon_Xpress_1100_DDR2.html

How long did you leave the battery out?
To discharge the BIOS you need to short out the battery contacts, or disconnect the battery for 1/2+ hours.
If this does not work the it is near impossible to remove because the password would be stored on an EEPROM chip.
Check with Gateway, they might suggest a motherboard replacement just like IBM.

A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:
In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.
Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.
When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.
Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.
B. By Using Software:
I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

SOURCE: How to reset bios password
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Message Meanings : Previous POST did not complete successfully. POST loads default values and offers to run Setup. If the failure was caused by incorrect values and they are not corrected, the next boot will likely fail. On system with control of wait states, improper Setup settings can also terminate POST and cause this error on the next boot. Run Setup and verify that wait-state configuration is correct. This error is cleared the next time the system is booted.
What does the above mean ??? If the BIOS does not see a particular device loading ( like Hard Drive ) Try bringing up the Bios setting F-2 and reset to default. Hope this helps
If one of the BIOS settings is incorrect or if the system is looking for a particular ggggg
