Re: 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!

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!

    I forgot the security password

    here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

    For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
    For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
    pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
    Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
    It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
    then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
    Then it not want password.

    And if u tell about windows password
    Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

    then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
    But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.

    Bios password

    You will need the BIOS password to enter the BIOS setup.
    To do a hardware reset remove the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes. Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.
    After you enter BIOS, go to the Boot tab and down to "Security" and make your changes there.
    If you need help with the default password, please re-post your request.
    Thanks and good luck.
