Well hi there first of all try installing a new software but only try this if you still have the driver disc that came with your motherboard.

Forgot password to my acer I am on another computer trying to see what to do to fix it


If the password you are trying to reset/recover is a Windows password, here is a link to a site that will allow you to download a Linus-based program that will create a boot disk that can find and reset /remove the user password to let you boot Windows. If it is a BIOS password, and the BIOS reset won't remove the password, you are pretty much out of luck....

Forgot my password but i don't have the discs


Hello,

You can clear the password with a program like active@ password changer. It is a bootable cd that will allow you to clear a windows user password. You can purchase it from their website at www.password-changer.com If you forgot a BIOS password, then you will have to sent it to Acer to have it cleared. They charge $100 for this service in Canada.

Hope this helps!

I forgot the BIOS password someone told me to remove battery and put it back but i cant find the battery


The BIOS Battery, to be precise CMOS battery looks like:

When your PC is turned off, your computer saves information about time, bios options and others with the help of CMOS battery. Try to remove it, wait a few minutes and set it back again. This action might cause to reset your BIOS password.

Forgot Acer Aspire L100 BIOS master password. Used "cmospwd /k" to remove password, but power was cut accidentally. Now, machine starts POST (keyboard lights flash), but there is no display.


In cas eof forgot password of bios you must follow the following steps
  • open the cabinet and look for the bios on the corner
  • there u would find a pin which is fixed on the side of BIOS take the pin out and put it in the next two pins and again fix it at the original p
Now your BIOS password is reset and u can access your pc

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.

CAN OPEN MY PC


I'm not sure if you are physically trying to close  your pc, or if you have only set a BIOS password, have forgot it, and need to reset it.  If you have forgotten the BIOS password, you will need to reset the CMOS (BIOS) in order to access the BIOS and change your boot order.
Please provide the make and model of your PC, and I will post instructions on how to reset the password :)

DVD hardrive problem


Do you check the setting of your hard drive? It seems that you have already another hard drive (HD) install which is working already were your operating system install. Try to put the 2nd HD setting in slave position. Follow instruction that is written at the back of HD. Your computer should read the 2nd HD as slave and will see it as drive: F or G and so on.
