    Hi, I found the link next to the battery was hardwired - changed it as suggested and can now boot the computer which runs as normal. I have installed a removable jumper for future use thanks for the help.

    Are you talking about BIOS password? If you are, you will need to flash BIOS by relocating the CMOS Jumper near the MoBo battery, turn the PC on, then off, then put the jumper back to its original position. This should errase the password and allow you to enter setup.

Good for you, Snokie! I hope you are now happy. You can now work with Windows passwords instead of BIOS passwords after you have loaded your Operating System. Come back if you find more boogers, okay.

Acer laptop was given to me needs password bypass, can not find BIOS battery or link


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there hope this helps

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

Hello

There are a couple of ways you can bypass the motherboard code

Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password by Removing the CMOS Battery:

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.

Finding the CMOS BatteryAnyway, open up the computer case using a screw driver and locate the flat, circular and metallic CMOS battery. Some computers have this part standing upright.

Once you have located it, observe how the latches are holding it.

Make sure to power down the computer, unplug the power cables and unplug any USB devices if they are powered. The computer must not be able to get power from anywhere for this to work. Take out the CMOS battery and wait 10 - 25 minutes before putting it back in. The reason for this wait is because the computer can still store power in its capacitors even though everything is unplugged. The waiting period allows enough time for them to discharge.

Plug everything back in, power up the computer and enter the BIOS again. If everything went well there should be no more password. In some cases, if you get weird error messages during bootup now, you will need to goto "Load BIOS Defaults" in BIOS and save the changes to fix them.

If this method didn't work, try one of the methods below.

Bypass or Remove a BIOS Password using Software:

iBIOS is a freeware utility which is designed to be a whole BIOS and security suite. It has the ability to decrypt the passwords used in some of the most common BIOS makes such as Award, Phoenix, American Megatrends, IMB etc..
It also has the ability to brute force the password (known as "blasters"). However, this method is dangerous and can result in some unexpected and unwanted results.

Note: Because of this applications password cracking abilities, some antivirus software may report it as a virus/trojan. This is a false positive.

To start using !BIOS, reboot your computer and take note of the BIOS type and version you are running. For example, If your motherboard uses Award BIOS you should look for the text "Award Medallion BIOS 6.0′ or something similar.

Download !BIOS and save it to your desktop. Then, open a DOS command windows by going to Start > Run and type: cmd

Once you see a black screen in front of you, type: cd desktop
You should now see something like: C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Desktop>

Now type the name of the file you just downloaded, if you haven't changed the name just type in: bios320.exe

!BIOS - Decrypting a BIOS Password
Use the down arrow and choose "Crackers" and then press the right arrow. Using the up and down arrows, select the BIOS that the motherboard is using and press Enter.

You should now see a menu asking what you want to crack, in most cases its the Supervisor or System Passwords you want to crack, so press the 1 key on your keyboard. It will then show you another menu asking how you want it to be cracked. Option 1 is pretty good so try that first by pressing the 1 key on your keyboard. You should now have your BIOS password.

Reboot the computer, enter the BIOS and try it out.

Acer elock


You don't need to pay acer the 100usd to get the password removed, 
one thing you can try first, is to disable the elock service from 
start -> run -> type in services.msc
look for elock service right click properties startup type disabled and stop the service, on some elocks this is enought to stop it from working. but it debends I can fix this and I have done it many times now..

Bios reset


As another option you could try resetting the jumper. Some boards save the password regardless unless the reset the BIOS by using the resetting jumper. Refer to the motherboard's manual for further information on how to do this.
