Accer apire one d255e hardisk security lock


The BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is designed to check the integrity of the computer hardware and launch the operating system. The BIOS also has basic security features that prevent unauthorized access to the computer by locking the hard drive with a password. The password is required in order to launch the operating system. That option can be disable without an changes to the operating system.

Turn your computer on. Press "Esc," "Del," "F2" or "F8" to access the BIOS. Use the arrow keys to go to the "Security" tab. Press "Enter." Highlight "HDD Lock," Boot Password" or "Hard Drive password" using the arrow keys. Press "+" until "Disable" appears. Go to the "Exit" tab, highlight "Save and Exit" and press "Enter."

How to reset my bios password ? cause I've trouble to login to my system device, thanks


Only two places can assist you on how to reset your bios password on a laptop or notebook. Acer Support is the first and the second is Unlockbiosrecovery.com the only non manufacturer to help you reset your bios password or hard drive password on a laptop. The service is legit and very helpful when I need to bypass a bios password or hard drive password on a laptop that I am working on. They have simple instructions on how to get the information needed to calculate your unique bios master password for your laptop. That info and $20 gets you the same bios master password that Acer support would calculate and give to you for $150 and they guarantee it to work. I have checked this site by ordering a master password that I already had for my Dell from Dell Support which I misplaced, when I found my original bios master password from Dell Support and compared it to the bios master password Unlockbiosrecovery.com sent me and they were exactly the same password. Saves me a lot of time and frustration when I repair a laptop that has an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password that was set in bios. They are in California and have a phone number that real people answer and they are helpful and knowledgeable about unlocking bios or hard drives. Only real place I have found for bios recovery and hdd recovery.

My son locked the hhd drive and he forgot password how do i unlock it


You can't unlock it without the password. Removing the hard drive and putting it into another computer will not work.
This feature is used to prevent unauthorized access to data on the hard drive.
The hard drive password is set from the Security setting in the BIOS configuration and you need the password to disable the password on the hard drive.

Supervisor password...


I'm not sure what is meant by it being on top of the bios password, I'll need more info.

However, A bios password can be reset by removing the coin cell battery for 15 seconds from underside of most laptops in a compartment with a cover removable by a screw(s).

If the password is not part of the bios it is on the hard drive. The only way I no of wiping out an operating system password such as in windows xp is to do a fressh install of the operating system wiping out the old one.

Other than that the only other place I could think of there being a password is on the boot sector of the hard drive and formatting the boot sector and repartitioning the hard drive wiping out all data can remove any password on the hard drive.
