SOURCE: Boot sequence / bios password issues with Acer Aspire 5100

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: d520 setup locked, cannot change boot order or re-install os

here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user passsword

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.

Try system restore. During the boot sequence press F11 and follow the instructions. If it fails, try with your installation disk.

Try this fix...
When you get the system started and it finds your startup disk you will see a screen that says Press any Key to boot from CD. I normally use the space bar as my any key and then you should see a blue screen that says Windows setup in the left hand corner. Wait until you see the welcome to setup screen and then click the "R" key to get to the Recovery Console How long it takes to get to each of these depends on the speed of your system, but I will tell you that it will take a few minutes to finally get to the Console.
Once you are at the Recovery Console you will be given at least one choice of Windows installations. Normally the choice you want is the number 1 choice. Click the number 1 key at the "top" of the keyboard and click enter.
You will be given a message asking for the administrator password. Unless someone or something has messed with your computer there is no password so you just click the enter key.
This will bring you to a prompt that says:
C:\WINDOWS>
Type: cd \ and then click enter
( Note: between "cd" and "\" there should be a "blank space" otherwise the command won't work. If you find that a command hasn't worked make sure you typed it correctly. These are similar to old DOS commands where spaces had to go between each command so DOS knew where one command stopped and another started.)
You are now at the ROOT of the drive where it all begins. The Prompt should now say C:\>
Now type: CHKDSK /R and click enter.
The chkdsk / r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
Now after the chkdsk has run type: FIXBOOT then click enter.
It may prompt you with a warning but continue through it and once fixboot has finished type: EXIT and click enter.
Your system should reboot and when it does click the F8 button to get a windows start menu. Use the up or down arrow to highlight the LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION and click enter. If it was a simple drive error this should have fixed it.

Reset the BIOS password on a Acer Aspire 6930


Completely wrong! I am trying to reset the superviser password which enables you to reset boot sequence etc at the moment most everything is greyed out and one most have the supervisers password; not! the user password; hard drive password or windows log in pass word ! Pressing f8 several times does not work and the cmos battery is nowhere to be seen ;not under wireless card or memory chips so how about someone who knows what is what coming up with real info! Using third party programes to reset windows password ineffectual as the computer must boot up from a usb stick with appropriate software to interrogate the password but I cannot alter boot sequence as of now! we are now talking about the candy windows password not the bios passwords that originally gave me this problem as I sent the computer back in time to an earlier config but the password went into the ether! ok. I tried all the old passwords all to no avail!. All this to see if the wireless card was working as it seem to be away without leave! or my modem /router is kaput in the wireless department! There is a hint of an advanced Bios setup but can't access it!

How do i reset the password when i dont know the original pw?


A password is required to install anything on Linux, in order to prevent any malware or unauthorized users from doing harm. In order to install the program you wish, you will need to enter your password, which is the password you used to log in to Linux. I am assuming your account has sufficient privileges. If you set up an administrator, root, or su (superuser) password when you first booted up Linux, enter that password.

Acer 6930 recovery problem


About the only thing to try is to find another person with the same PC.

Remove the disk-drive from your computer.
Remove the disk-drive from the other computer,
and install your disk-drive.

Run the Restore Disks on that computer,
which will restore to _YOUR_ disk-drive.

When complete, remove the disk-drive, and reinstall it in your computer.
It should boot, and run properly.

Could it be your CD-ROM drive that is intermittently failing?

For the psswords i can recomend to reset them from BIOS but to do that you must first know them. The problem with recovery disks is solvable if you boot from an XP disc and format the C: partition in NTFS file sistem and when it starts copying files to install the windows stop the installation ( F3 or press the power button for more than 4 seconds.. don't worry you will not sustain disk damage... done it myself with the same notebook for a dozen times ) After formatting the partition C: try recovery again and it will work.
NOTE: for the formatting of the partition you must set the HDD mode from AHCI to ATA witch permits the XP setup utility to "see" the HDD. If it is set in AHCI mode the setup utility for windows XP will not detect youre HDD
