I forgot my password for my acer aspire one laptop and i want to reboot it with out the CD


You said "laptop" but you posted to "PC Desktops".

If you really have a laptop, find the original bill-of-sale, to prove that you (not a thief in possession of your computer) are the true owner, and contact ACER's "Technical Support" department, for help in getting past that "password" prompt.

Can't remember password


BIOS password remove alternatives:

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.


OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password cuz all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt.
The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

Laptops Acer e lock activated / password unknown


Fastest way slick and reinstall. That's why I never in 25 years of computer support never enabled passwords that deep. Some system have a hardware reset buried inside but it takes a tech to get to it. Some time removing the CMOS battery will do it. It would be easier to hack the OS and get into the Admin password than a hardware passwork.

Lost password to acer laptop


restart pc, when its booting back up, keep pressing F8 to get windows to start in safe mode, select safe mode, then windows will start with no drivers and large desktop icons, and an administartor account will be on the desktop.

Click on the admin account and go to control panel,click users icon, then click change an account, choose your account then click on delete password, restart pc and you will be able to log in

I have a acer laptop and when i press f2 to go into setup it asks me for a setup password! what is it?


Password was set by the last person who setup Bios. The only way to delete password is to disconnect battery, or even internal battery to clear the memory.

I have an old Acer ferrari 3000 series laptop. My 3 yr old nephew was playing with it now everytime i start up it ask for a hard drive password. Dont have a clue what it could be. Also when i press F2 to...


if u don't know the password for the hard drive, u won;t be able to use it !!! U can try to mount that drive to another laptop/computer and than force it to lose the password encryption (u'll need special software and advanced knoledge...). The other option is to send it to the producer (acer) and let them do the job.(expensive !!!)
As for the password that is requested when u press F2, is the BIOS password, and u can get ride of it easily by reseting the BIOS.(u should find info for this in the computers manual)(note: this involves opening the computer case ...)

And ofecourse there is the option where u can try all posible combinations for the password .. it shold take just 2000 years ... lol
