Locate ur rtc(real time clock) and remove battery next to it.
this resets bios (and any psswords) to factory.
battery looks like large digital watch battery.

Dear mewla

you canb tray this

It's a laptop. Unless it is 4 or 5 years old it will not have a jumper on the motherboard.

You can remove the bios battery and let you know what freeze over and it will not do anything. The bios password has been stored in a security chip. Doesn't need a battery.

If the dang thing will not access the floppy until the bios password is entered, nothin you stick in that hole will work.

Some laptops can be reset with a donggle. If it is available it can be gotten on ebay. I know the toshiba is one.

Some times you can use the back door passwords and get lucky.

Otherwise you will have to contact acer and be prepaired to send it in or provide them with proof of purchase.

Good Luck

Power flashes on for a second and then turns off completely

The most likely problem is that the power supply has failed.

I made a password or pin code to my mobile phone so that when ever I turn if off that won't allow anyone to use when i on it then i use that password but that password I forgot and I need to unlock so...

what you have to do is go to your local phone company store and tell them that you forgot your password and they will be able to reset it. i know it is a pain in the ****, but it is the only solution.

Forgot power on pass word


This is only possible is you are using Windows XP. If your operating system is windows Xp, follow the steps below:

  1. Turn on your computer and allow it get to the stage where is will ask for user/log pasword
  2. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del your keyboard.
  3. A user name and password prompt will pop up.
  4. On the user name type in "administrator
  5. On the password, type in "administrator"
  6. and you windows will open, go to control panel from there to change the password.
That's all. In other words, the user name and password is administrator.

But in the case of windows Vista, you will have to re-run windows operating system, because vista security is very tight and its difficult to break into its password.

Take care.

I forgot the power on password

Is this a BIOS password? In other words, are you asked for a password immediately upon turning on the computer? If yes, then it depends on the make/model of the laptop whether you can fix this yourself. In any case, you would need to call Compaq tech support.

Forgot my power on password

Remove the battery and to the power cord.
Remove the two screws that secure the keyboard. After removing the keyboard, remove the battery “RTC” to stop providing energy to epprom BIOS. After the upgrade or downgrade, or any repair, leave the Laptop for 5 minutes, without any source of energy.
Then connect only the power cord without battery and without the battery “RTC” of the Bios.
then turn on the pc without the battery and press f10 change the admin password put the battery of the laptop again not the rtc battery then save changes and exit, reeboot with the win xp disk inside , change boot order and done i garantied it work install xp and then connect the rtc battery done. jajaja easy
