Acer 7720G Bios Password Reset

Hi, i was fiddling around with the laptop last night and i came across some password setting for use to boot up bios. I don't think i went through fully with it and should have cancelled it but when i switched my laptop on today it requested for a password which i have no recollection of inputted into. What should i do? Can i call Acer and get them to generate me a master password?

    This is a known bug with Acer's BIOS.

    If the notebook is allowed to "sleep" or "hibernate", the password gets corrupted.

    Got mine on saturday, today is monday, let it hibernate for first time last night not knowing of this issue. open it this morning to same surprise, wanting a password. acer wants $125 to fix it. its 3 days old!! so i'm not happy with them right now. they did say it can go back to compusa for an exchange but there goes my data. thanks acer!

BIOS passwords in most laptops are stored in a special chip on the motherboard and the only way to bypass this password is to replace this laptop security chip. yeah you can call acer technician....

Can you show me how to disable bios password on acer travelmate 2350


The BIOS password is a hefty security measure, and consequently, is difficult and in some cases impossible to disable if you do not already know the password that was set. Dell offers a recovery service if you can prove purchase. Acer does not provide any kind of easy solution, but most use a BIOS developed by Phoenix, and you might (and thats a big might) be able to recover the BIOS (a.k.a. wipe the original, which requires a password, and replace it with a 'fresh' one). If you are interested in this endeavor, I came across a handy tutorial if you want to try it out. http://forum.notebookreview.com/sager-clevo/326954-case-you-kill-your-phoenix-bios-bios-recovery-methods.html

What is the bios password for an acer aspire 5100


It sounds to me like it was set by someone other than yourself. There is no legal way to reset the BIOS password. You can contact the person who set it, call Acer for service, or if you bought this from someone, return it.
If you set it, try to remember what it was.

Acer aspire 3003lci forgotten bios password


you will need to disconnect the cmos battery for a few seconds to allow the bios settings to revert to default, reconnecting the cmos battery will allow you to boot up without a password, howver any changes which were made to bios settings will be lost....have you tried pressing f8 while booting, then selecting the option "last known good configuration" ?
