The password is not working because you forgot it, it wont have changed on its own, with a laptop you usually dont get the option to reset the bios with jumpers or removing the battery, you may get lucky using an admin backdoor password, try this site http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/reference/biosp.htm

I have an acer travelmate 7730g. I turned off the fingerprint securlty and am now presented with a password request before anything boots up. The thing is I don't remember ever setting this password...


I ran into the same issue with a bios password The laptop is a newer Acer TravelMate and I was able to remove the password. Remove the hardrive first. Then remove the memory and unplug the black and red wires from the battery about 2 inches away wait a then plug it back in. With the harddrive out still I turned the computer back on and then back off, put the harddrive back in.

You will end up clearing the bios settings including the fingerprint readers settings.

How to Disable Acer Travelmate 240 BIOS Password?


Hi,

To disable the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and the bios password will be disable.

Take care.

Bios password problem


try this,

members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

if that don't work, acer support charges 100.00 to reset the password, What a rip-off.
