Just remove the motherboard battery for 20 min and put it on. It will lose all the settings and you can get into bios

Acer aspire 5610z, enter primary master hdd user password


Sometimes removing CMOS battery of laptop overnight will reset bios parameters.if this does not work you have two other options.Google hirens boot disc 15.1 on another computer and either make a bootable USB. Stick or burn to cd.start laptop in get into bios to change the boot sequence to either cd or USB.let the hirens boot cd run.it installs a small version on windows Xp on the ram and let's you then access the hdd to save all the files and pictures on to other media.it also has many tools including software to read all stored passwords on hdd and bios but I don't recommend this until you have retrieved all you want to save.hope this helps please vote?thankyou.

My advice to you is technical. You need to reset the CMOS on the motherboard internally. As for the password in vista unless you know it you will more than likely have to re-install vista or do a systme recovery by using the e-recovery partition that comes stock with ACER computers. I do not advise you to try resetting the cmos if your not technically capable

Watch battery


The CMOS battery, is a unque item inside, usually in a trapdoor-like hatch near the battery cubby, remove the main battery before looking for it. It usually is covered in colored shrink wrap, it also can be several coin- sized batteries and a wire connects this to the motherboard.
