My acer 2490 is asking for a setup password and i dont know what this is i cant get on my computor at all it start of black screen then says writing then tells me to press f2 and when i do i get a light...

If you cannot access the machine after if has been powered up, it is still possible to get past the BIOS password. The BIOS password is stored in CMOS memory that is maintained while the PC is powered off by a small battery, which is attached to the motherboard. If you remove this battery, all CMOS information (including the BIOS password) will be lost. You will need to re-enter the correct CMOS setup information to use the machine. The machines owner or user will most likely be alarmed when it is discovered that the BIOS password has been deleted.

On some motherboards, the battery is soldered to the motherboard, making it difficult to remove. If this is the case, you have another alternative. Somewhere on the motherboard you should find a jumper that will clear the BIOS password. If you have the motherboard documentation, you will know where that jumper is. If not, the jumper may be labeled on the motherboard. If you are not fortunate enough for either of these to be the case, you may be able to guess which jumper is the correct jumper. This jumper is usually standing alone near the battery. If you cannot locate this jumper, you might short both of the points where the battery connects to the motherboard.

If all else fails, you may have to clear the BIOS password by resetting the RTC (Real Time Clock) IC (Integrated Circuit) on your motherboard.

Breaking a password

That needs to be done within the bios. most passwords are 0000 by default so if it was never changed then try that

Everytime i turn on the laptop PhoenixBIOS setup utility shows asking for a password... any idea's?

Yes, 2 things
1st, are you pressing any keys to ask it to enter the setup? If yes, why?

2nd, if it is always going into setup when turned on, then there is a fault with the current NVRam setup. If it does NOT give you an option to continue, then you will most likely need to send it to the manufacturer for repair. OR a phone call or chat session to them and they may be able to give you solution.

I know if the hard disk is password protected, they will not give assistance over the phone as them make an assumption if you set the password you would remember it and if you did not then you most likely should not be accessing the hard disk.
