The above solution provider is wrong saying there is no other solution

The following solution is what I have done practially and it works
You will need to open the laptop, remove the keyboard and underneath their is a covering. Remove the covering and you will see rtc battery and a dip switch with four white buttons that can be positioned to on and off. First disconnect the rtc battery from the motherboard and then move the third button to the on position. Power on and the password will be removed. Power off the laptop. Reconnect the rtc battery and slide the third dip switch button back to the original position. Enjoy

Here is information on CMOS BIOS passwords. You have to follow instructions closely. Aside from that, there is no other way.

I am using Acer travelmate 4052 model for past 6 years. I used password for booting system. Today I tried to remove my BIOS password using BIOS setting. System asked me current password. So I entered the...


Try "1" or "/" or "A" or some messy combination of keys because it seems like you probably had a typo during setting the new password. Try "Spacebar" try "]" or "[" etc for a password, if you can figure it out you can reset it to nothing again just be careful. Otherwise research acer travelmate bios password removal. Also that computer is kind of old, so if there's nothing on it of importance, I'd replace it. If you need data try your friendly computer shop.

Hi How do I clear BIOS password set by misstake on Acer Travelmate 2413 LCI? I can not get in to BIOS setup


When you turn on computer look for Acer logo on boot up. Press F8 or F10 or F2 while the logo comes up several times (if you miss turn it off and try again)and then you can access your bios. Use arrow keys and enter to clear the password. Follow the bottom of the screen for directions and if you need more help let me know and thanks for using FixYa.

Cant enter laptop at all


Does it start to boot Windows, or does it ask for the
password before Windows starts to boot?

There may be a password set in the BIOS, to clear that, open
the case and remove the CMOS battery.
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD PCCMOSCLEANER FROM PCCMOS.COM AND BURN THE ISO IN A CD. NOW BOOT WITH IT. IT WILL CLEAR YOUR BIOS PASSWORD

How can I remove BIOS Password from Acer TravelMate 230/280 MS2132 laptop?


Use a Backdoor Password
  • 1

    Go to the Technibble website and locate the manufacturer of the BIOS for your computer. Write down the backdoor passwords that are listed.

  • 2

    Restart the computer and press the "F2" key to access the BIOS.

  • 3

    Enter one of the backdoor passwords to see if you can access the BIOS. Repeat this step until you find a password that works--but keep in mind, sometimes three wrong guesses will cause the computer to lock up.

  • 4

    Change the password for the BIOS to something else, then exit and restart the computer.

  • Remove the CMOS Battery
  • 1

    Unplug the computer from the wall outlet or power strip. Remove the screws on the back of the case that secure the side panel. Slide the side panel off and then locate the round CMOS battery that is attached to the motherboard.

  • 2

    Examine the battery to see how it is attached to the motherboard. Pull on the latch to release the battery and then remove it from the motherboard.

  • 3

    Wait about 20 to 30 minutes for the electricity in the capacitors on the motherboard to discharge or dissipate.

  • 4

    Set the CMOS battery back in the motherboard. Set the side panel back in place and the plug the power cord back in.

  • 5

    Restart the computer and press the "F2" key to access the BIOS
