Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Open up the side of the case. You should see three headers, with a jumper on the first two. It should be labeled something like cmos or something like that. Remove the jumper, and switch it so that is is covering the last two. Then, remove it again and put it back. That should reset the BIOS to defaults, including the password. If you cannot find the jumper, remove the battery from the motherboard for a period of time (I'd try 24 hours just to be safe). When you replace the battery, it should reset the password.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.
