If you know the current password, you can reset it to a "blank" password.

If you don't know the current password, then you could be a thief in possession of a stolen computer. Find the original bill-of-sale, to prove that you really are the owner of the computer, and telephone ACER, and ask for technical support.

To reset BIOS password, you must remove CMOS battery, not regular one. CMOS battery is located somewhere on the mainboard, so you have to open laptop.

There may not be a problem. 'No Device' usually just means that nothing has been paired with your laptop. Open up your Bluetooth settings and click 'Add Device' or 'Setup Device' or whatever, and follow the instructions.

My Acer One was given to me and I need the Bios password. Any Ideas???


The Acer Aspire One has built-in BIOS recovery which can be used to flash its BIOS. Once the BIOS has been flashed, all BIOS settings are reset to default which gets rid of the BIOS password. This procedure has been posted Aug 2008 on macles for friends of the aspire one to address the BIOS failure that frequented early versions of the Aspire One BIOS. I have used the procedure on my own Acer Aspire One when it bricked in the fall of 2008 and once more in 2009 to install a later BIOS version. Acer also posted Feb 2009 the similar procedure on AcerSupport but has since removed it. Be aware that you must follow the procedure carefully and do so at your own risk. Here is the macles link.

Need to remove the cd/dvd drive in my acer aspire 5040. can anyone help with a link to a service manual or video etc...


Normally there is one screw (at the back of the cd drive) that has to be removed either from the bottom of the laptop or in some cases it is under the keyboard.

Then open the cd drive using a paper clip and pull the drive all the way out. Grab the side rails and gently wiggle back and forth while pulling on the drive.

Hope this helps

How to reset password


To set the bio password, follow the following:

As soon as your laptop powers up, hold F2 until the ACER logo appears. Now press the right arrow on your keyboard twice to go to the: "MAIN" tab. Now press enter. You will be asked to enter the new password twice along with the original one. (if you previously had a password.). Now scroll down to where it says either: "Enabled" or "Disabled". If it is: "Disabled", press enter and select "Enabled". Exit the BIOS saving changes.

Done.

You did not excersize your cells so they died. When you get a new battery remember to either leave it plugged in for only an hour or two to charge and then unplug it. You fried your brain cells dude!
