Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
I have what is termed the 'black screen of death' on my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop. I want to re install windows, but cannot change the boot sequence in the bios as I don't have the bios password. I have never set a bios password so don't understand why it is asking for one. The laptop was bought brand new. Is there an alternative way to change the boot sequence or to boot from cd.
Can I remove my bios password?
Any help appreciated.
The finger print bull is how that password came up for me and they want a 125.00 to remove it. I called the better business bureau and filed a complaint. They shouldn't have any right to control your laptop. I to have a 6292 , took it apart as far as I could and could not find jumper or password. This is a gimmick to make money.

For removing bios password you must have to remove cimos bettery for few mnuts but for doing this you have to open case of laptop
and it is not adviceable because your notebook is new one
so find any service station if yor laptop is in warranty period or you may lose your warranty
there isn't any other way to clear cmos without opening case of your laptop and remove cmos bettery
unless you will get cmos password but as u said you didn't put password in your laptop it might be possible that your notebook manufacture him self had put any password in cmose as a company policy
in that case also you must have to go to them
