The BIOS file can be found here:

You may also want to replace the BIOS battery on your motherboard. It is the large round battery about the size of a nickel.

Why is admin PW locked?


BIOS passwords can add an extra layer of security for desktop and laptop computers. They are used to either prevent a user from changing the BIOS settings or to prevent the PC from booting without a password. Unfortunately, BIOS passwords can also be a liability if a user forgets their password, or changes the password to intentionally lock out the corporate IT department. Sending the unit back to the manufacturer to have the BIOS reset can be expensive and is usually not covered in the warranty. Never fear, all is not lost. There are a few known back doors and other tricks of the trade that can be used to bypass or reset the BIOS

It sounds as though the wrong BIOS has been installed or when downloading the correct BIOS there was a problem with the file and it is corrupt.
Apart from removing the BIOS chip and fitting a programmed one, there is not a lot else you can do except speak to Acer and see if they can help.
Regards.

I updated the bios for my packard bell easy note laptop, model L4014. The laptop now just boots and reboots. It seems to have lost my drives. How do I resolve this problem


go into your bios and have a look at your boot order, when you do a bios update, usually it sets bios to default setting, most of the time making dvd drive 1st boot rather then hdd.
might help.

Netvista 6350 lost screen connection after BIOS password reset


If there a separate AGP Video Card in the system? If so, is there also a VGA connector on the motherboard? If you have both, try swapping the screen over to the other one. You may have reset the default video card back to the motherboard.

However, it looks as though you are using onboard video as you appear to be using 256Mb shared RAM for the video memory as your total should be 1536Mb.

In that case, you may need to do a rurther BIOS reset. You can find the complete instructions here

In the screen say wait no boot bios


"No boot BIOS" or "No boot ROM" are the default messages when there's no hard disk to boot from, or when the hard disk does not contain a valid operative system, or is not marked as bootable. Also, if the hard disk is not among the units to boot from.

Check the system configuration, then the hard disk.
