This is the service manual for your laptop. On page 99 is the graphic showing the jumper location for resetting the password. I am unsure with the graphic whether this jumper can be accessed through an access panel. The graphic shows the location on the motherboard and gives the number stamped on the board, You will have to take the access panels off and search for it. When you find the jumper area, use a small screwdriver that will short across the two contact points without touchinf anything else. Power the board up and wait untill the bios clears and system wants to boot. shut down power, remove the screwdriver or jumper that you use. Put laptop back together and boot the system normally. Go to the user control panel and change the password to one you will know.

If you can't change the setting in the bios setup that means you have a bios supervisor password set. If you don't know the supervisor password you can reset the supervisor with Acer Bios Master Password from http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Acer_Bios.php for only $20

Master HDD password


Password
To set a password on boot, activate the BIOS utility, then select Security from
the categories listed at the top of the screen. Find Password on boot: and use
the <F5> and <F6> keys to enable this feature



Read about Security page 40 in the user manual:

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Bypass HDD password


From what I understand, the hard drive can be set with a password so the drive can't be used in any other computer or even opened if stolen. It is different from windows or bios passwords, and no password unlocker can open it.

You need to call the manufactor of the pc, and have all the information about the computer handy so it can be proven you are the legal owner. They are the only ones that I know of that might be able to reset or disable the HD password.

Don't have HDD passwords


To clarify the request, it is a harddrive password not a bios password or windows.

Reset a password


if you mean the bios password you need to remove the bios battery for about 10 minutes, if you mean the windows log on password, then you will have to get into windows in safe mode (press F8 on boot up) and get in as administrator and delete or change the password on your user account.
