Press fn + ctrl + esc on post screen, removing the batery does not work on new acer computers. Or try downloading bios_pw.exe and run it.

You should contact you laptop manufacturer and clarify if there tech password for it. Or you would need to clear cmos by jumper on motherboard.

There r no simple solution for removing any password from a laptop bios. the only solution is to reset the bios. if u could open the the laptop just remove the small bios battery (abt 3/4in dia). remove both battery's & leave it for a min & pack it up. go in bios at first start up. load optimized settings, set date & time. done.

Hdd password ,how 2 retervie


There are no backdoor passwords available. The password cannot be removed from the hard disk unless you know the original password to get into the hard disk and you can then remove the password.
Hard drive password is set to protect data stored on the hard drive from unauthorized access. Removing the hard drive and inserting it into another computer still will not allow access without the password.
If you cannot remember the password, your only options is to replace the hard drive with a new one and install Windows, the device drivers and your programs etc. to get a fully functioning computer again.

Forgot my password in cmos harddisk


The hard disk password is setup using the BIOS configuration, this password is stored on the hard disk and there are no backdoor passwords you can use except the password you created and if you know this password then you can remove it permanently using the BIOS configuration. Moving this hard drive into another laptop will not work either, it won't allow access to this hard disk.
Your only option is to purchase a new hard drive to replace the one with the password.
If you also created a BIOS password, you need this password to get into the BIOS configuration.

All these passwords are created by users to prevent unauthorized access into the laptop and hard disk.

Forgotten password


Hello:

If you want to restore your laptop to factory setting: You should insert your "recovery disk to the CD/DVD ROM. and then shutdown the laptop.

Now; boot your laptop using the recovery disk(boot the laptop from CD/DVD rom) This will no need to input the password: its either you have to restore the system without deleting the existing files or you have to partition and format the hard drive. formatting hard drive you will end up with fresh copy of system files. same as first day when you purchase the laptop.

be sure to install the driver if there's any.

However; if you tend to do by supplying the password. iguess all factory installation has no password. you have to strike the enter without supplying any password.

may this help,

Harddisk Security Code - Acer Aspire 5720


Generally you can remove passwords by removing something called the CMOS battery. This battery retains the configuration of the computer when the AC power and main battery aren't present or working.

The battery is generally located in the RAM expansion bay. Locate the battery and remove it. let the laptop sit without ANY power connections for at least 30 minutes. When 30 minutes or more has passed, replace the battery and connect power. Boot the laptop and press F2 to enter the BIOS setup. Generally no configuration is necessary on laptops so just save and exit.
