Re: Acer Travelmate BIOS password problem

I have an Acer Travelmate 4060 laptop which i used for along time without any problems ... but all of a sudden when i boot up it asks for a password and so wont boot to windows . I did not put a password on the machine and im pretty sure nobody else has without my knowledge. Is there anyway to bypass this password or to reset it . Thanks

If the password is on the bios, than open the case, find the bios reset pin and short it (or remove the bios batery for 5 sec. ), if the password is on the disk drive(implemented throw bios), than is nothing u can do !!!! (exept go to the laptops manufacurer and pay(a lot) him to remove the password !)

My Acer TravelMate 242LC PC Notebook has a administrator password which I have forgotten. How can I reset this password? I removed the battery from the mother board for about 20 minutes and it did not...

A Windows Password Reset Disk could do all the job for you, it can reset your lost or unknown Windows password safely and quickly without login, you can create a Windows password reset disk with the tool Windows Password Breaker, then use it to reset your password.

Acer Travelmate 4060. Dead. Flashes power/battery led once when I hit the power button then nothing

Try removing the battery and plugging the machine in as if you were going to charge it, then try starting it up.

If it doesn't start up, check the connections on the adapter. If everything looks fine then theres a possibility that you have a broken adapter.

Having problems with my acer travelmate 4060

Get virus scanner/remover, and then try restore to a date when the computer was in full working order. If that does not work, try to backup valuable data files before original default factory settings, and get model-specific drivers etc from Acer and Microsoft websites.
