If you where the CMOS battery is, there's beside it a jumper inserted in two of the 3 pins(left pin and middle pin). Remove the jumper from its original position and with it short the middle pin and right pin. This resets the CMOS ROM to its default settings minus the password. Return the jumper to its original position as before. Reboot the computer.

Acer Aspire One has Hard drive Password frozen


There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.

Forgot my password in cmos harddisk


The hard disk password is setup using the BIOS configuration, this password is stored on the hard disk and there are no backdoor passwords you can use except the password you created and if you know this password then you can remove it permanently using the BIOS configuration. Moving this hard drive into another laptop will not work either, it won't allow access to this hard disk.
Your only option is to purchase a new hard drive to replace the one with the password.
If you also created a BIOS password, you need this password to get into the BIOS configuration.

All these passwords are created by users to prevent unauthorized access into the laptop and hard disk.

Locked out of my laptop forgot my users password


I have the same computer and I done the very same thing. Do you have the recovery disks that it came with? If so you need to take a paper clip and open the drive by pushing the paper clip the small hole in the cd drive door.... If you cant get the drive door to open. Try running your disks from 1-7. This should at least get you to the BIOS. Set your Boot order to where the 1st line says from CD drive. Then you should be good to go to factory settings.

If that does not work if you have a 98, Ultiamte Boot Utility, Vista Bootable CD, They can boot your system and format your hard drive whatever you want to do. You will lose all your data but at least you will be able to use it.

Setting new hard drive up on acer 5315 series


Hi,
If the Back Up Disk you mean the 2 Recovery Disks that you have burned from the eRecovery in Acer.

You have to enable D2D Recovery on the BIOS Setup, it's usually on the second page of the BIOS Setup on a Acer Aspire Laptop.

Please Rate, Thanks

Start up problem Acer 3100 Aspire


Ok, the first thing is to load the BIOS default settings.
Then, set the cd-rom as the first boot device, and try to start windows setup from cd.
If it loads and detects the hard drive, the it is promising.
Another way to check your system for working capability would be to use a Linux cd (kubuntu is perfect for this) and see if it loads and works correctly. The interface is very similar to windows, so you will not have prblems using it. And it has also a MEM Test as a booting option, wich I reccomend you to use.
