Acer Aspire 5715Z cmos battery

I have an Acer Aspire 5715Z (Same model as 5315). After i installed Acer eSettings i set up a bios password. After that I start up my notebook and before the boot i get "Enter CURRENT Password:?". i entered my password that i did set up in Acer eSettings but it is an invalid password. I am 100% sure that it is the password that is set up in Acer eSettings.. I'd like to reset the BIOS.. I think that i had to putt the cmos battery out for a while.. So i am looking for the battery and i can't find it.

I made some pictures of my laptop:

Can someone tell me where to begin.

Note: I'm sorry for my english

How to reset bios password of acer aspire fl50 5500


The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup inMicrosoft Windowsis "Acer eSettings Management" which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

Before you can install "Acer eSettings Management" you have to install program called: "Acer Empowering Technology" so you'd better to download both of them from Acer website and install & restart your computer to be ready for the job. Here is the link of Acer website, just come there and select right series/model of your computer to download these programs:
ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com
Another one program is also very important we will need called: "CmosPwd" - CmosPwd is a cmos/bios password recovery tool. CmosPwd is under GNU Public License. You can freely distribute it. It can be compiled under Dos, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD.
Download it here: http://www.cgsecurity.org/cmospwd-5.0.zip
Guide to install CmosPwd and remove password:

1. Download & extract to a folder. I put it in drive Dlike this: d:\ cmos
2. To work on cmos memory, ioperm need to be installed and running. ioperm gives direct port I/O access for specified ports to user-mode process (ring 3) using Ke386SetIoAccessMap and Ke386IoSetAccessProcess kernel functions.

Log on to Windows as Administrator priviledges and do as follow: (see picture):

a. Click Start-->Run: type CMD hit Enter on your keyboard.
b. now us the CD command of Dos to come to d:\cmos\windows. (here is: d: hit enter; cd cmos hit enter; cd windows hit enter).
c. when you are already in d:\cmos\windows in drive Dthen: type "ioperm.exe -i" hit enter.
d. to start ioperm service: type "net start ioperm" hit enter.
e. ok, type: "Cmospwd_win.exe /k" hit enter, we will see:

1 - Kill cmos
2 - Kill cmos (try to keep date and time)
0 - Abort
Choice :

Type 1 and hit Enter to clear cmos.

f. run the Acer eSettings Management program: start-->program-->Acer Empower Technology-->Acer eSettings Management.

g. now come to the: Bios Password to see: if you still see password enable, that means we fail but if we see they are Disable so we are done. Remember if we success remove password then we have to create a password for it and then remove it and click Apply to save to cmos memory. This is very important because sometimes we see it Disable but when reboot the computer they are Enable again cuz the password is still in the CMOS.

That's all, good luck & don't forget to set an easy password later.

Where is the bios/cmos battery located on a aceraspire 5315-2698? I cant get past the password screen.


Hi,

The battery in Acer Aspire 5315 is very visible has a blue ring of plastic or rubber around it. follow the leads which are very short and short the circuit. no risk of damage to systemboard)
1. Try to remove cover
2. Find battery on the far right hand of the board
3. Take a small flat screwdriver and contact the two leads from the battery
4. Power it on and power it off to reset the BIOS
5. This should work for passwords
6. Moreover, it resets to default configuration

Please share the results.

Regards,

Anirban Mazumdar

You didn't mention what BIOS you have..(re: pheonix or ami or Award) so you can try "BIOS" or "CMOS" or "ACER" or "PASSWORD" or you can remove the CMOS batttery for a few minutes

I reset my password on my laptop - Aspire acer 5715Z/5315 series. Set the password to something so random, never wrote it down...It will not let me reset my password. I am unable to get into my own...


If you set the "power-on" password, you'll have to contact Acer, to get assistance, after you prove (with the original sales receipt) that you did not steal the laptop.

If you set the "logon" password, restart your computer, and keep pressing the 'F8' key, until you get a menu that allows you to start in "Safe Mode". Sometimes, this mode will not require a password.

Or, reinstall Windows, and choose to install to 'C:\TB' rather than allowing it to install to 'C:\WINDOWS'. After you re-install, you can access all your files.

Try to clean the Cmos password from acer aspire 5315


What ever you do, do not use soap and water!!

Really, this is a little tough. There is a jumper someplace close to the cmos battery that will allow you to clear the password. First thing you have to do is find the cmos battery, and it could be under the keyboard, or under a cover on the bottom of the machine.

Looked for a service manual for you, but unable to come up with one.

Bios password problem


Guide to remove BIOS password of Acer computer (Both Laptop & Desktop).

There are four ways to remove the BIOS password

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.

You can contact acer support or search internet for Acer's default BIOS password and that would be real easy for you, But if you are comfortable enough to use Dos you can also try this method.

OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password because all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt. frown.gif

The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.
