Setting up a password on the Acer Aspire prevents others from accessing the computer without permission.

If the user is unable to supply the correct password at startup, the computer will lock the hardware and fail to boot.

This security measure is a useful feature, but it can create serious problems if you forget the password.
Basics

The Acer Aspire stores the password in a component called the complementary metal-oxide semiconductor.

This component is integrated into a random access memory chip embedded on the motherboard. The CMOS holds data that the basic input/output systema critical software utility that controls how the computer operates at startupaccesses when the computer boots.

If the BIOS detects that a password is registered in the CMOS, it will prevent the computer from booting until the user enters the password correctly.

Depending on which model of Acer Aspire you own, you may be able to clear the CMOS manually.

Contact Acer before attempting to clear the CMOS, as opening the computer without permission could void your warranty.

Desktop Models

Some Acer Aspire desktop models come with a jumper that is used to clear the password and other settings stored on the CMOS.

This jumper is located on the motherboard and is often found next to a label such as "JBIOS1" or "CLR_CMOS." To clear the CMOS using the jumpers, turn off the computer, disconnect the power cable and remove the case cover.

Remove the jumper shunt from pin 1 and pin 2; then place the shunt on pin 2 and pin 3. Return the shunt to its initial position after 10 to 15 seconds.

If the Aspire doesn't come with a jumper to reset the CMOS, the CMOS can be reset by removing the lithium coin-cell battery instead.

Removal is accomplished by pushing down on the tab securing the battery to the motherboard and lifting the battery out of its slot.

Leave the battery out for 24 hours, and then return it to its original position with the positive sign facing up.

Laptop Models

Resetting the CMOS password on an Acer Aspire laptop is much more difficult than resetting the password on a desktop.

Disassembly steps vary from model to model, but on most models, you'll have to take apart the computer to access the CMOS battery.

Don't take apart the notebook if you don't have experience disassembling PCs.

After turning off the computer and disconnecting the AC adapter, take out the battery (different from the CMOS battery).

All visible screws must then be removed from the bottom of the notebook.

Remove all components stored to their separate compartments on the base of the notebook.
Turn over and open the PC.

Lift up the switch cover and remove the screws securing the keyboard to the PC, if any are visible.
Remove the keyboard.

Remove the screws securing the monitor to the hinges, and then set the monitor aside. Disconnect all visible cables connected to the motherboard; and then remove the screws from the top cover.

Remove the top cover to reveal the motherboard.
Locate and then remove the CMOS battery.

Leave it out of the notebook for 24 hours; then reinstall it and reassemble the Acer Aspire.

Other Options

If removing the CMOS battery fails to clear the password, or if you don't feel comfortable with the idea of opening your computer, you might be able to gain access to the computer using a backdoor password.

These special passwords were implemented to allow technicians to access locked computers. Not all models recognize backdoor passwords.

Most Acer Aspires use the Phoenix BIOS, and backdoor passwords for this BIOS include "BIOS," "CMOS," "phoenix" and "PHOENIX."

All of these passwords are case-sensitive.

Plug the laptop directly into the router and see if you can get the internet if so the wireless is giving you a problem and we'll need to look at that.

Since it is only a week old, I would be on the phone to Acer first thing in the morning.
Part of the price you pay for a system does include the warranty.

This way, if the part is defective, they will handle fixing it N/C

If you wait too long, the warranty may expire.

Hi Sue
Kids are great aren't they? The magic combo you are looking for is alt and f10 (thats the f10 key - not f, 1 and 0). You need to press down the alt key and f10 simultaneously while the ACER screen is up.

The manual for your laptop can be found at this link. http://www.scribd.com/doc/2505575/Acer-Aspire-Laptop-manual

The instructions for the recovery are located on page 25. There is also a notice there that disk to disk recovery must be enabled in the bios for it work. The instructions are there to verify if this is so. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

This is what one calls a potential 'can of worms.'
It could require a great deal of connector swapping and it isn't likely that Acer will allow you to access the necessary circuit diagrams to even make this possible.
It is highly unlikely that you can simply procure and install any kind of 'adaptor' and without knowing having the circuit diagrams, you are facing a near impossible task.
The backlight of an LCD screen uses high frequency, high voltage to supply the fluorescent tube(s) that provide light.
Incorrectly connecting lines could result in damage to both you laptop and/or the circuits contained in the LCD body.
