You can't bypass the bios setting,if you mean reset the bios, there may be a jumper to clear the cmos (bios) just change the jumper to clear, then put it back in its original place ,or take the battery out of the motherboard (very) gently for about 10 minutes then replace it ,then turn on the pc

good luck, let me know how it goes

Reset bios on acer aspire e380


Hi,

You can reset BIOS setting by CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps: Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battery, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will clear the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battery & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.

If the computer still does not boot, then it needs repair.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Computer powers up by its self when first plugged in


Most BIOSes have a setting for what to do after a power failure--stay off, turn on, resume last state. If the user is unplugging the unit before a total legal and proper shutdown, then that might explain why it turns on 'when plugged in'. Disconnecting before completely shut down is detected by the BIOS as a power failure.

Also, killing power to a running system can cause file table corruption, corrupt files, a destroyed operating system, even in rare cases a total loss of everything on the disk.Although, If you mean the computer turns on by its self after it's been turned off (so he unplugs it to keep it from powering on), then it might be "auto awake" settings in the bios, I've seen some bios' have "auto-power on" settings so that signals from network cards or peripherals can power the computer up.

Also It turns out the CMOS battery went out and that probably reset the BIOS so the computer itself was set to turn on by itself when it was plugged in. With a new CMOS battery and a quick setting change the computer is ready to go.

Flashing the Bios is a LAST DITCH effort to resolve Hardware issues. You should NEVER flash the bios unless you are absolutely certain it's the correct bios for your computer, also NEVER flash bios from within windows..

There may however be a solution for you, Acer laptop computers with the Pheonix BIOS sometimes has a " flashback" feature, allowing you to revert to your original Bios..

You will need to contact Acer to get a Crisis Bios recovery disk from them. Or ask for further information on how exactly to recover from a bad bios flash.

Usb cdrom not supported


First of all confirm that all system are of the same make and all this contain same motherboard.

1> Next if all have the same mother board than check for the cmos setting in the peripherals option and look for the usb support drives is enable or not.

So there is setting the cmos only and if this bios is not update than find for update bios from the mother board site. and try upgrading the bios and please take precaution that during the bios update process system must be on ups so that power failure not occur other wise bios will be dead.

Hi, i have a acerpower s series computer and mine had no sound either. What i did is when i first turn it on the acer logo appeers with a blue background and then it will ask to to press ctrl alt esc to enter setup. Do that. When in setup go to the option to restore to default settings and then save and exit (i think you press escape and then yes). This mght work because theres a setting that disables the onboard sound and restoring defaults will enable this. Do the oposite of this http://www.acersupport.com/desktop/articles/pse_sound_dp10499.html
or go to the acerpower sn support articles if you still having trouble http://www.acersupport.com/desktop/articles/psn_articles.html
Also upgrading to windows xp might fix this aswell. Hope this helps :)
