Hi, Keith.

Remove the bottom of the notebook.

See if you can remove the CMOS (round, silver) battery for 30 minutes.

If not, on the motherboard, note the bank of four switches. Normally, they would be off. I believe that if you turn on switch 3, the BIOS and boot password would go away.

Hope this helps.

You need to open the memory area back panel.. there is a small battery there that needs to be unplugged from it's jack...

be sure there is not power supply plugged in and the battery pack in the notebook is removed before opening the back panel on the memory area of the notebook... ground yourself to a metal object and touch the outside vga plug in socket to discharge any static electric charge before doing this repair....

leave the small battery unplugged for two minutes...

plug it back in the socket... and fully setup the laptop again ....

place the battery and power it up

this should clear the bios settings ... now go into the bios features and configure the settings as specified on acer's website based upon your particular notebook

SOURCE: how to reset password

To set the bio password, follow the following:

As soon as your laptop powers up, hold F2 until the ACER logo appears. Now press the right arrow on your keyboard twice to go to the: "MAIN" tab. Now press enter. You will be asked to enter the new password twice along with the original one. (if you previously had a password.). Now scroll down to where it says either: "Enabled" or "Disabled". If it is: "Disabled", press enter and select "Enabled". Exit the BIOS saving changes.

Done.

SOURCE: Bios Password Reset

The only idea I have is to find and disconnect the CMOS back-up battery after removing main battery and unplugging the AC adapter. That SHOULD clear the bios completely, wiping out the password, the date, and everything else.
I know this works on desktops, and most laptops, but no promises, and the cmos battery may not be easy to access.
You should probably leave the battery unhooked for at least 1-2 minutes to be sure it clears.

Hope this is some assistance!

Hi...

To reset the bios you need to open your laptop you can see there a jumper which is there is a small name (CLRSCR means clear cmos)beside the jumper you need to get it and turn on your laptop with in 5 seconds then turn it off, after that you reinsert the jumper, then turn on your computer and see if there is a bios password. "good luck"

How do I get into my bios when F2 won't work


Try tapping the Delete key instead.

It say here you use F2, but you have to do a complete shutdown rather than a restart. You have to keep tapping as soon as you see a logo or life!

    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 cuz 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.
    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.
