Question about Computers & Internet

I'm trying to reset my BIOS, because I was told that it would fix my password issue. I forgot my administrator password a couple months back from changing it too much. I had changed it 3 times in the matter of a week or 2 and have tried everything I could think of for a password and could not remember it for the life of me. I have an Acer Aspire 3690 laptop, it's a 2006

If you forgot your Bios password then open the pc and reset the COS jumper.
If forgot your Windows password then restart your computer press F8 . select Safe Mode and try administrative login to reset password.

If you forgot the administrator password then use any third party software like Hirenboot to recover it.

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.

I forgot my bios password could you help me SerTag #F6KG1G1-595B


Hello,
There is actually no easy fix about this issue. Not even a possible way of bypassing the BIOS password. Normally re-flashing the BIOS software should fix it but it is done by the manufacturer and thus these kind of problems are normally tagged or considered tampering.

I forgot the security password


here are 2 password type first 1 is bios password if tell me about your bios password it prompt when u powerup follow procedure below

For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.
Then it not want password.

And if u tell about windows password
Then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in safe mode then wait until it prompt for user password

then enter in administrator then if u able to enter then reset your password.
But if u set and forgot default administrator password then u should need winxp recovery disk.

Hdd password


Hi when you say hdd password.. do you mean the boot password? if this is the case, then you could try unpluggin the pc, pres and hold the power button for about 10 secs, removing the bois battery, then putting everything back together. This will wipe the bios, and the password.
