    Unfortunately the CDs did not come with it as my nutty employer leased the unit.

    The key Icon I could not find - so I guess the solution I actually need is how to find the program initialization for that key symbol!

The Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint solution basically lets your network and data be secure by verifying an individual's true identity. The integrated biometric fingerprint reader supports Pre-Boot Authentication for secure authentication during system power on even before the operating system starts which means Windows shall authorize you to Log-in on just a mere touch, without the need of typing in passwords.

Look on the task bar next to your system clock and you will see a "key" icon. Double click on that icon and have at it. If for some reason the Icon is not visible, look in the bag of CD's provided by Acer, there ought to be a utility inside.. :-)

    You can initialize the software by simply swiping your finger over the reader, and it will start the configuration process. You will need to have the Drivers installed and updated for it to work, the drivers if missing can be found in the following links.

I have an acer travelmate 7730g. I turned off the fingerprint securlty and am now presented with a password request before anything boots up. The thing is I don't remember ever setting this password...


I ran into the same issue with a bios password The laptop is a newer Acer TravelMate and I was able to remove the password. Remove the hardrive first. Then remove the memory and unplug the black and red wires from the battery about 2 inches away wait a then plug it back in. With the harddrive out still I turned the computer back on and then back off, put the harddrive back in.

You will end up clearing the bios settings including the fingerprint readers settings.

Please help me im just a begginer just want to de activate my acer finger print authentication or change to another settings


Look in Start Menu > Control Panel for a protection software for your fingerprint scanner. There should be a built-in software to your operating system that controls settings for the device. There, you should be able to activate/deactivate it or alter settings to your liking.
You could also try going to Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager. Click on Biometric and disable the "touchchip fingerprint coprocessor".
Let me know if this helps!
