Acer bios reset

Good morning. I have an Acer aspire 5310 and I need to format it. However, when I try to access the bios, the system requires a password. I don´t know the password, because in the last time I formated my notebook I I didn´t entered any password. How can I reset the bios or what must I do to initialize from a operational system cd room?

Thanks!

Try this and see if it will work.

1. Go and download the bios file - ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/asp.../bios/v1.06.zip
2. There should be a file call AG1A-106.EXE inside Alviso folder, just extract this file to the location you like.
3. In windows, use cmd (Command Prompt) to run this application.
4. The syntax should be ---- AG1A-106.EXE /ldcmos /reb -----
5. It may take 1 minute to load up, when it appears, just flash it.
6. Computer will restart after flashing and password should be cleared.
7. Don't forget to set back the BIOS settings if required.

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!

    Reset bios password


    Acer laptops are equipped with a BIOS utility.
    The BIOS (which stands for "Basic Input Output System") acts as an interface between the hardware and software installed on the computer.
    On some computers, a BIOS password may be required in order to boot the computer and make changes to the BIOS settings.
    If you are unable to access the BIOS settings and do not know how to reset the BIOS password, you might be tempted to send the computer back to the manufacturer for repair.
    Fortunately, that's not necessary as there is a simple way to do this on your own.

    Go to "Start," then perform a search for "Command Prompt."
    The Windows Start button is located in the lower-left corner of your computer screen.
    Double-click on "Command Prompt" to open the application.
    You will need to use MS-DOS commands to reset the BIOS password.
    Type the following commands one by one in the order shown:
    debug
    o 70 2E
    o 71 FF
    quit
    Make sure that you are typing the letter "o" and not a zero at the beginning of the second and third commands.
    Reboot your computer by clicking "Start," "Shutdown," and then "Restart."
    The BIOS password will now be reset to default.
    or
    To get into your computer's Basic Input-Output System (BIOS), your computer must be on, but your operating system cannot be running.
    If the Microsoft Windows operating system has even started to load, you will not be able to access your BIOS.
    This is why getting into the BIOS on an Acer Aspire netbook computer must be done specifically during your computer's initial boot-up sequence, which happens immediately after pressing the power button on the device.

    Turn on your Acer Aspire.
    Press and hold the "Ctrl" key.
    Press and hold the "Alt" key.
    Press and hold the "Esc" key.
    This key combination will open the BIOS on your Acer Aspire.

    Set the bios password and forgotten whaat it is


    You need to preform a Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery

    instructions here: http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/08/acer-aspire-one-bios-recovery.html

    Summary:
    You need a flash drive formatted as fat (Right click on drive. Click format. Select fat for file system. Press start)
    Down load the bios 3310 from here: http://macles.blogspot.com/p/acer-aspire-one-bios.html
    Extract all files. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.

    Make sure laptop is off and has battery and power plugged in.

    Plug in flash drive to netbook. Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press it once. The netbook will now access the files on the flash drive and initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the power button stops blinking, and the netbook reboots by itself. Wait patiently.

    If it doesn't reboot, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.
