removing the battery would not solve the problem

You would have to find a jumper Green in color near the CMOS Battery area,It would read PSWD on the motherboard

It will be connected to pin 1 & 2, change it to pin 2 & 3 - this will reset the password,

Now clear the CMOS by pressing the power button

Then restore the jumper back.

My acer laptop 5750 went to blackscreen , even when turning off and on again, it kept black .

my solution is: Let your laptop on to drain your battery, once its drained, try turning on and feel if it doesn't have battery.

then charge your laptop for 4 hours, mine went back to work just fine

the display works fine 04/18/2014 good luck.

Aspire 5750 bios password

if you dont know the password then the only way to reset it is to find where the cmos battery is on the motherboard, Some are under a plastic plate under the battery, some are underneath the memory door. some are under the keyboard. but you are looking at removing that battery (button cell, watch type) and take a metal item and short out the pins on the battery holder for 10 seconds. Reinstall the battery and reassemble. This will delete the bios password and restore it to default
Hope this helps

I just want to know how can i reset my bios password ?

Hi there,

The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget alot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password.

Hope this helps.

How do i shut off password on powerup???

What password do you want to remove? Is this a windows password or a bios password? If bios, you need to know the password and then enter the bios on boot up. I'm not sure on compaq's, typically it's either escape or delete keys as it's booting. Sometimes before you can even see the screen. Once in look through the options and it should be there. If windows, what version of windows.

How do i reset a cmos/bios pasword on a compaq presario 2100. i forgot and can not boot the computer compaq service no help

The power on password is a little harder to break in laptops than desktops and this tip may or may not help. Each computer manufacturer is different in how they set thier systems up. Disassemble the laptop down to the chassis where the RTC battery can be seen in its socket. Make sure that all power is removed from this device and remove the RTC battery. Let the motherboard sit without the battery in it for up to one hour. replace the RTC battery and reassemble the laptop. Do not put the main system battery in just yet, power on only with the AC adapter. Power the laptop up and if it asks for a password, just hit enter, if it still asks you for a password, type in "clear". If it still wants a password, then the only other option is to "short" the two contacts in the battery socket for the RTC battery, using a small wire to jump the positive and negative points in the socket, make sure nothing else is touched or you will Nuke your motherboard. With the battery contacts "shorted" power the motherboard up with the AC adapter, wait approx 1-2 minutes allowing the motherboard to post. Shut the board down, and follow the previos procedures for reassembly and powerup.
