If it's a laptop, there is no default password. BIOS passwords are used to prevent access to someone's data when their laptop is stolen. Wouldn't make much sense to have a generic default password available to the general public, now would it?
Why can't you do a reinstall while Windows? Just insert the CD while Windows is running and you should get a repair/upgrade/new install option.
As a last resort, install a version of Linux on a spare harddrive and install it into the laptop. Then run Windows upgrade disk.

you can format it using clean install just insert the Windows OS CD then go to bios set the cdrom as the First boot device then press the a key on the boot screen wait until it ask you to select a drive to install the WIndows OS format the drive using NTFS, you can also set a partition on the drive for backing up purposes.

I have problem on bios password.i disable the bios password but it asks for the password and when i entered the old one and it doesnt work. acer aspire 4715z


Below is the factory service manual.....it is free to copy, use and print. You will need adobe acrobat reader or fixit read it now to view this file. The BIOS password reset procedure is on pages 39 and 40 of the manual. It involves "shorting" two contacts on the motherboard while powering up the laptop. Read the procedure carefully and you will be fine. If you find this uncomfortable, a local shop should be able to perform the procedure for you.
