    Static? Who told you that? And why did you need to reset your bios in the first place?



    Can you tell us what the model and operating system are, and do you know how much RAM you have?

All laptops have a CMOS, or "Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor," battery.
The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to keep the system time, date and BIOS settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.
Individual Acer Aspire laptop models differ somewhat, but the general steps are the same when replacing a dead CMOS battery.Preparation

Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.
Purchase the battery through Acer or a local or online computer parts dealer.
Turn the laptop off and unplug it.
Also unplug any external hard drives, cameras or other external devices.
Turn the laptop over (bottom facing up), then touch something metal to remove static charge.
Removal
Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover (refer to your owner's manual if necessary), then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing.
Lay the cover aside, then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable, then remove the battery.
Installation
Plug the new CMOS battery cable into the motherboard.
Slide the battery partially under the laptop casing to hold it in place, then align the cover with the slots on the bottom of the laptop housing.
Replace the screws, then turn the laptop back over.
Settings
Plug the laptop in and turn it on.
Enter your BIOS (usually by pressing "F1," "F2," F10" or the "Delete" key) before the operating system loads.
Follow the BIOS prompts or refer to your Acer Aspire owner's manual to reset your time, date and desired system settings.
BIOS Reset
Any time the CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few seconds, your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings.
If you make any changes to the BIOS that cause problems with your Acer Aspire, unplug the CMOS battery for 3-5 seconds to correct the problem.

Toshiba satellite pro u400-130 bios password


  • The CMOS is, in basic terms, the part of the motherboard that stores the BIOS settings. To remove the BIOS password from your Toshiba laptop, your best option is to forcibly clear the CMOS.
    To clear the CMOS, you must remove the battery from your laptop and leave it out for at least 30 minutes to an hour. The way to remove the battery from your Toshiba will largely depend on the model. A common way to remove the battery--particularly with newer models--is to release the battery lock on the bottom of the laptop, while sliding the accompanying tab over to the side. This will pop the battery out from its tray so that you can then pull it out all of the way out.
    Before you remove the battery, turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Otherwise, you could end up harming yourself or the laptop components. You must also ground yourself to prevent damaging the laptop with static electricity.
    After about a half an hour or more, return the battery back to its tray and lock it into place. Power on the laptop. The computericon1.png, ideally, should no longer ask you for a BIOS password.
    It's important to keep in mind that resetting the CMOS means that all of your BIOS settings will be reset to factory default. Also, sometimes you may need to leave out the battery for much longer than an hour to reset the password.
  • If resetting the CMOS doesn't work, then your next bet is to try using a backdoor password. A backdoor password is basically a password that manufacturers include with the BIOS so that technicians can access the computersicon1.png that people send in for repair. An example of a Toshiba backdoor password is, unsurprisingly, "Toshiba." When the BIOS prompts you to enter a password, entering "Toshiba" may allow you to access your PC and clear the old BIOS password. Another option is to hold the left "Shift" key down while booting.

How do I remove my toshiba bios password? When I turn on my computer it instantly asks me for my password (Bios). I am unable to even get into my windows


The way around a lost/forgotten BIOS password is to reset the password to the default BIOS password, which is: no password at all. A BIOS will accept a password, but will not set one by default.
The way to reset your BIOS password, since it is not stored in flash memory, but is stored in battery-backed ROM, is to (utilizing proper static control techniques) remove the CMOS motherboard battery (a button cell), leave it out of the computer for a few minutes, then re-install the battery, and reboot the system. This will remove the BIOS password (and reset all BIOS parameters to their default, including the BIOS password), and send you into MSWindows, where you'll be prompted for Windows passwords to each of the password-protected accounts on the computer.
In brief, your anti-static technique of choice is an anti-static strap clipped (via simple alligator clip) to the frame (ground) of the system. In a tower computer, ground would be the frame, whereas in your Toshiba laptop, a number of grounds are available, such as a screw securing an output port, or other means of grounding as specified in your laptop's service manual.

Here's a link to a how-to for replacement of the CMOS battery in a Toshiba L305-S5895 laptop.

My HP Pavilion Dv6700 turns on but nothing on the screen as in its black, BIOS do not show. Please help!


Looks like the post itself fails on the system from what you have told here. Its easy to reset the bios. Download the actual bios flash program on a completely formated usb drive. Fix the usb on your laptop and keep fn+esc keys pressed and switch on the laptop. It will rewrite the bios and once rebooted the system should work. Good Luck.

Confused laptop


Hi,

This can be hard drive problem as well as a system board failure issue.

However try the following to fix..

Go to bios by tapping F10 key while the system starts. go to the diagnostics tab and select hdd self test and press enter. this will inintiate the hdd test. if it gives an error code then the hdd has gone bad. if it shuts down then the motherboard needs a replacement.

However if it passes.. then keep tapping the F11 key while the system powers on.. it will take you to the recovery console. select advance options > system recovery and click next. complete the recovery process. the issue should get resolved.

Note : if you are unable to go to bios or the recovery manager then disconnect the ac adapter and the battery and hold down the power button for 2 Min's. This will drain the static. try again.

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Anup

Gateway laptop 450ROG freezes up after it gets hot & screen frzs


This definitely sounds like a heat problem. The system fan should cool it, but there may be a lot of dirt in the heat sink or along the path that the fan blows air. The first thing I would try is to get a can of canned air and blow it into all the vents under and on the side of the computer. If it is dusty, keep your face away.

You didn't say, but if you let the system cool down for a while (maybe 15 minutes or so) and start it up again and the same thing happens, it['s definitely a heat issue.
