Question about Acer Aspire 8920-6048 Notebook

1 Answer

My brother recently died and I have inherited his Acer 8920g notebook. Unfortunately he had set an HDD password on it and I can't find the password anywhere. Is there any way of getting into the machine at all?

You may be able to use backdoor bios password, not all bios chips have them, but its worth a try, check HERE
IF it is a HDD password and not a bios password, buy a new HD. You would need to install a OS and drivers, but you may be able to attach the old drive in a caddy and retrieve the contents.

If this does not work for you, please write back and i am sure we will fix it

To delete the Acer Aspire Notebook HDD user password, go to http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_Acer_HDD.php The link above will show you to enter 3 wrong password and then copy down the 5 or 8 digit code it displays with Disabled message. Purchase the Acer HDD master password from the link above and submit the code and your model and they will email you the bios master password to unlock your Acer HDD in an hour.. They guarantee it to work or your money back and I have used them successfully dozens of times, saving me a ton of time and money.

Hi, I have an Acer Aspire 5535 with password in the bios


Unfortunately, if he put a sysetm BIOS password and doesn't remember it, you need to contact Acer's website.

You can have a electronics technician jumper all electrical current to wipe out the BIOS password, but contact acer first to make sure that there is not another method.
