Removing the battery does not always fix your issue. Some computers have ic chips with redundancy built in to prevent theft and to protect sensitive data. If removing the cmos battery does not solve your problem you may have to send your computer in to a reputable shop so they can fix it in house. Check ebay for bios removal store fronts and email the sellers to see if they can fix your machine.

The easiest way is to remove the cmos cell that allows the bios to save the password

when u remove the cmos cell all the default settings of you laptop will come into effect hence removing the password
cmos cell is located inside the laptop on the motherboard

getting it done by a tech helper is seriously recommended

Acer c710-2856 got stolen how can I trace it


Did you have some type of tracking software such as Lojack or Prey? If so turn it on from any other PC and it will track the laptop's location (by GPS) once the person who stole it gets on the internet. It will also take pictures of them without them knowing it if it has a camera. Simply take the GPS Location report and the pictures to the Police and they will go pick up the laptop. As a computer repairman, I've installed and recovered many laptops and cellphones for people using this technique. http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.net

How do i find hdd user password on acer extensa 5420-5571


You have to find the person that put the Hard Drive Password on. I'm not saying you stole the laptop, but 99% of the time if a person has a laptop and does not know the hard drive password, the laptop is stolen. The original Owner put the password on the hard drive to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. It could have been set remotely by the original owner if the laptop i stolen.

My HPdvr4 laptop was stolen im not sure if i had any tracking or anything installed on it....is there anyway possible to locate it if the person who stole it connects to the interent? thanks.


Every network-adapter (wired or wireless) in a computer has a unique 12-character code, named the 'MAC-address'.

Call the police, to report it as stolen.

Contact your ISP -- if you connected your computer with a cable directly to the cable-modem or DSL-modem, they can tell you the MAC-address. They can also look on their network for the thief making the same connection with your computer. If they find it, they will need authorization from your local police, via a warrant, to release information about the location of the thief to the police.

If you made a wireless connection to your school/employer's wireless network, they may be able to retrieve similar information.
