There is usually a jumper on the motherboard that you can use to reset the cmos to default settings. If you cannot find one, then try removing the cmos battery for ten seconds then reinstall it.

    The two methods I mentioned in my first solution are valid methods. Below is a link to a website that outlines other methods, including the two that I mentioned. Turns out removing the cmos battery does not work on every system, but most motherboards have some sort of jumper to reset or clear the cmos. That section on the following link states that the jumper would be located along the edge of the motherboard, either by the cmos battery or the cpu. it will be labeled accordingly.

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
Manual
. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as you may void your warranty.

Removing bluetooth chip


Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Dunno.
Do you have a wireless connection set up?
No.

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
