    I bought an Acer 5715Z yesterday evening, installed my stuff on it until well into the night, left it on to synchronize some data. This morning I found it asking a BIOS "Enter CURRENT Password". I did setup a Bios Master password yesterday through the Acer eSettings tool from within windows and did not reboot it immeadiately thereafter.



    I called Acer and was told to order a recovery CD for 60 EURO's. !!! As the system will not even boot from CD I do not see that as an option. So I will have to send it in for repair. I spoke about 4 servicedesk persons. All reported the same stupid policy. This got me frustrated of course, so I started being somewhat assertive. Up to the point where one just stopped talking altogether.



    I'll spend another hour or so (wasted 5 hours this morning already) looking for a backdoor. If that does not give me any it's back to MediaMarkt. Fortunately one of the better stores with a "not good buy another brand" policy.



    I will make sure none of my friends ever considers buying Acer again. The machine may be a beauty, but if the front door jams and the doorman won't let you in it, it is of no use to me. I'll walk on and pick the next hotel.

If you want to restart your computer you can push Alt and f10 as soon as you see the acer logal. just push alt then f10 then alt then f10 untill it comes to this page where you can restart your computer but it will be set back like if you just got it and if it came out of the box so everything will be erased

Try entering the first 8 characters of the password only. Use SHIFT for the alphabetic characters in the password, but not the numeric.

Its says enter current password at start up


If it is a BIOS password that you have forgotten, you can remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for 30 seconds and connect again. This will remove the existing password.

Acer aspire 5536 forgotten the HDD user password


Assuming that after you enter the wrong three times it should generate a lockout error. At this time you can follow these steps to unlock the system:


http://pcmediks.blogspot.com/2010/11/how-to-remove-hdd-user-password-in-acer.html



Basically, once you unlock it, you should be able to boot into the BIOS and disable the HDD password. I'd say to do that first but you would need the password once you were in the BIOS to be able to disable it thus the recommendation to essentially set it to something you know first via the guide above.

I am using Acer travelmate 4052 model for past 6 years. I used password for booting system. Today I tried to remove my BIOS password using BIOS setting. System asked me current password. So I entered the...


Try "1" or "/" or "A" or some messy combination of keys because it seems like you probably had a typo during setting the new password. Try "Spacebar" try "]" or "[" etc for a password, if you can figure it out you can reset it to nothing again just be careful. Otherwise research acer travelmate bios password removal. Also that computer is kind of old, so if there's nothing on it of importance, I'd replace it. If you need data try your friendly computer shop.

Aspire 5315-2326 enter Current password problem


i think is a factory fault most systems comes with factory passwords like that.
now u must find out if its a hard drive password which i dont think is thru.if its a bios password then u will need to erase the bios chips which is a risky thing to do if u r not an expert.
my advise,
hard drive password can not be recovered all u do is change a hard drive.

bios password can be erased if u meet an expert.
i suggest u give them d 100 dollrs n get it fixed.
hope this helps
