I assumed that you have a password on bios..and you need to get rid of it ..in order to be able to get into bios settings and make changes...
If it is a desktop it will be easier..cause all you have to do is to remove the left lid..and put it on aside..and you will be facing the motherboard...remove the bios battery from the main board..with care cause it has a locking metal mount ..and it can be breakable ...after removing ..wait about 10 seconds and place it back ..and restart the computer ...it will prompt you to press f1 to go to bios directly and insert again the date and clock values...Cause it is rather difficult to do it from bios ..I will recommend to go into bios by pressing f1..and after that press F10 to save the values that already are and boot the computer ..and set the time and date from windows cause it is much easier..Just double click on the clock in the tray area..and will open the window where you can set it ..
after hat the password will be gone and you can operate in BIOS..
For a laptop the issue is the same ..you have to remove the bios battery ..or to switch its contact off if it has a switch on he main board..but the issue is that a laptop is much more difficult to open ..and you do need to open it ar at least see if the battery is under the keyboard ..For some models you do not have to get to the main board directly ..but it is enough to remove the hinges cover ...(remove from the back first than open the display to max..and from F1 and F10 points remove it with a flat screwdriver by inserting and twist it ..It will snap off..)
after that remove the screws from the keyboard..and slide the keyboard about an inch toward the display and it will come out ..
Pay attention on the ribbon that connects it ..and after that usually there is the wireless card right under...if you remove that you will see the battery ..if there isnt there ..you will have to continue the stripping ..and open it all..remove the hdd..the battery ..all the screws in the back and inside the ram memory area and the cooling dispenser..(heat dispenser..it is an aluminum piece that cools the CPU ) ..and see that there are hidden screws inside the battery compartment ..and all the other holes from where you removed devices...when all the screws areout ..it will snap off from the sides..start from bottom right ..insert a flat ..plastic tool ..with at least 1cm wide front ..and go ..from there ..inch by inch ..with care ..not to force it too hard..
I will place a video here about how to do it ..

Bios locked


I can't find a decent manual for your laptop but there will be 2 pins on the motherboard that will say BIOS Clear. Short these 2 pins and turn the computer on. This is the only way to bypass the BIOS password. This operation will clear the BIOS and reset to factory defaults. After the BIOS is cleared, turn the computer off and take off the short.

BIOS LOCKED


To unlock your BIOS you have to remove your BIOS battery for few minutes which is onboard, then replace the BIOS battery again on the motherboard will not only reset the BIOS password to default but will put all the BIOS settings to default. For which you will have to reconfigure your BIOS settings, but remember any wrong setting in the BIOS may damage your laptop.

Started receiving message "Warning -- Acer eLock activated -- Optical Device Drive Locked".


For that you need to disable lock in bios.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios .
Then you can see bios enter in bios and load optimal defaults.
Then save settings and exit.
If elock is enable then disable.
If you are not able to enter in bios if it ask for password then you need to reset bios.
For that you need to open back cover of laptop then find motherboard and pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then all settings defaults.
Then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Can'tpass the sytem lock to install a fresh copy


System lock? I take it, the bios is password protected.
Make sure the machine is off before opening the case.
If you have the motherboard manual you can reset the bios with a the specific jumper for the bios reset. If not remove the battery from the motherboard and leave it out for a while, replace it. Then restart the machine.

HP DV6110us: 4 beeps, no boot


besides the beeps which indicate a motherboard timing issue. There should be LED blinking codes given on the front LEDs. I will include the blink codes below, but lets try to at least get the system up and running. First, I would like you to remove the RAM sticks from the laptop and just reseat one stick back in the machine. Try to boot with that one stick, if it does not, try the other alone. There have been issues when reseating the ram or re-installing it have temp. fixed the issue. If it does reboot, go to the HP support site, put in your model number of your laptop and download and install an updated BIOS. Below are the blink codes that may narrow down the problem.....
