To reset the BIOS password read the information from this link.

In case of your Acer Aspire laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

Bios password


First would try to reset BIOS by removing CMOS batter. If removing CMOS battery did not help, you need to do the BIOS reset from jumper on motherboard.

I cant remember my login password and f8 does not work in safe mode still asking the password


Once you assign a password to your HP computer's BIOS configuration utility, you will need to enter that password every time you attempt to access the BIOS.
If you forget this password, don't fret there is still a way to unlock your BIOS without actually knowing the original user defined password.
This involves using a "backdoor" password, which is something that is installed onto your BIOS at the factory level that never changes.

Turn on your HP computer.
Press "F2" to load your HP BIOS access screen.
A password prompt will load on your monitor.
Type "merlin" into the password field (with no quotes) and hit your "Enter" keyboard key to unlock your HP BIOS password.

Hello,sorry my english is not good, i have a problem with my thinkcentre M52 . when i start the comp it writes enter system password.i press enter and it goes into the Bios,but i cant change anything into...


Someone has put a password on the BIOS - you must input it before entering the BIOS and the normal boot procedure. Because of the way IBM are build you can't reset the password by removing the battery, but only by performing a low level BIOS upgrade - which only a dealer can do. You will have to take it to one.
If you aren't the one that put that password and noone had access to it then the motherboard is dying - replace it before it's too late and all your data is lost.

Hi!bios problem.ask for password.when type i cant du nothing anyway.shortly cant boot from usb or external dvd row.whay?


When you type a bios password, you won't see anything because this is a security measure; people looking over your shoulder wont know how many digits your password is. There is a way to bypass it, though. Disconnect the battery, unplug it, then open it up. There should be a small round battery called the CMOS battery somewhere in there. Pull that out. Then plug your computer in and boot it up without the CMOS battery. It should say password disabled. Turn it off, disconnect it, put it back together, and you're good to go.
