Entered built in HDD1 user password


Hello

as the bios was reset the harddrive password was removed from the bios memory.

To get the password unlocked you will need to remove the harddrive from the laptop, buy a adapter so you can connect it to your pc and then do a few things Il tell you about later if your going to do it.

otherwice you can take the harddrive to a shop to be unlocked / reset to defaults.

How to remove bios password


Hi JM,
On the motherboard, there are jumpers to reset the board, but you have to do it while the power is off. you can go HERE and put in your system info, which may help you find out how to do this or to reset the password without jumping the system. I found on another site the following:
"If the user can boot the Acer, he/she may be able to reset the BIOSpassword using Acer eSettings Management.
  • Click the Start button
  • Click the All Programs menu item
  • Click the Empowering Technologymenu item
  • Click the Acer eSettings Managementmenu item
  • Once inside Acer eSettings Management, click the Securitybutton.
Acer refuses to assist customers with BIOS password issues. The only option they discuss involves sending the laptop to them and paying a $100 fee."
I hope this is helpful to you

I need bios password for second/third hand dell latitude 131L laptop service tag is 92VRFD1 can you help


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

cmos battery Under the keyboard or bottom of laptop - If you are working on a laptop computer the location of the dipswitch (almost never a jumper) can be under the keyboard or on the bottom of the laptop in a compartment such as the memory compartment.


hope this helps

Break bios password in acer 2420 travelmate laptop


remove the cover which has your power button and covers the LCD cables. Remove the keyboard and flip it over, being careful to not pull too hard on the cable. There's 2 small triangular silver connection pads beside the keyboard connector on the main board - connect them together and power on your computer (flat screwdriver works fine). Press the f2 key - you'll find it doesn't prompt you for a password. You can lift off the connections now. Go to exit and save changes, and you're password free.

Re: Acer Travelmate BIOS password problem


U sure it's u're laptop !?!?!!!?! hmmm

If the password is on the bios, than open the case, find the bios reset pin and short it (or remove the bios batery for 5 sec. ), if the password is on the disk drive(implemented throw bios), than is nothing u can do !!!! (exept go to the laptops manufacurer and pay(a lot) him to remove the password !)

Bios reset


As another option you could try resetting the jumper. Some boards save the password regardless unless the reset the BIOS by using the resetting jumper. Refer to the motherboard's manual for further information on how to do this.
