Go to this and choose your system. download the file (may take a while) and burn it onto a cd. put it in the laptop's cd drive and start up the laptop. you may have to configure the laptop to boot from the cd, when the laptop is starting, hold down the delete key on the keyboard. you should now be in the bios. go into the "boot order" section and set the cd/dvd drive as "1" the hard drive as "2" and anything else as three and so on. reboot the laptop. it will boot to the cd. it will recover the passwords automatically.

How can I reset the system boot password on my Acer Travelmate 6492


Here's the deal. Officially, Acer won't provide you with ANY information on how to reset this password. They only will tell you that if you send them $100 and the laptop that THEY will clear it for you. Here's an email excerpt that I found online in reference to this:
"Thank you for contacting Acer America. I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. In order to have the BIOS or hard disk password removed (This include any biometric security), the notebook will need to come in to our repair depot for password removal. This service is not covered by warranty and unfortunately there is no other recourse to remove a BIOS or HDD password from the notebook. The flat fee for BIOS password removal is $100.00 US dollars plus tax. If it is a BIOS or HDD password and you would like us to service it for you, please contact our telephone technical support line at 1-800-816-2237. Hours of operation are 7am-9pm CST Monday-Friday and 8am-5pm CST Saturday and Sunday, excluding holidays."
That being said, in most cases (and I've found several articles that confirm this), if you remove all power from the laptop (A/C power, main battery AND the CMOS battery) for approx 30-45 minutes, that this will wipe the BIOS completely and then you can get back into it. Getting to the CMOS (bios) battery requires partially tearing down the laptop which, while not rocket science, can be a bit complex. If you decide to do this, here is a link to a complete service manual that will walk you through the process (http://www.intellcity.ru/content-2/service-manual-notebook-Acer/service-manual-Acer-TravelMate-6492.pdf).
I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! If I can help you further, please let me know.
I strive for '4 Thumbs Up'! If I've assisted you, I'd greatly appreciate you taking the time to provide me with a favorable rating. Thanks so much!

I just bought a laptop from the pawnshop and it has a password lock. how do you restore a computer to factory condition?


This laptop could have been stolen property, that is why there is a password lock.
I suggest you take it back to the pawn shop and get your money back.

Hi,

im sorry to hear that but unfortunately, if youre not the one who created the BIOS password, theres no way for you t acces it anymore, what you can do is to reseat the CMOS battey on the motherboard so that BIOS password will be reset.


Hope this will help...

Got a aspire 5570 2052 at pawshop need password


*Immediately* upon powering up your machine, start hitting the "F8" button. You should receive a b/w screen. Using the up/down arrow keys, go to the "Start in SAFE MODE" (no networking). Hit ENTER.
The machine should boot into SAFE mode, with an "ADMINISTRATOR" user-id. Click on this id. Usually, there's no password assigned for this id, and you should be able to enter Windows, then go into Control Panel;Users, and remove the password for all other user ids. Then restart and boot normally.
Good luck!

Hdd password reset


Hi,
Laptops have the option to password protect for security purposes. If the laptop should be lost-stolen. this is to ensure your personnal data, cannot be accessed by any tom dick and harry.
Post your laptop model number, and i,ll see if anything can be done.
i do not endorse password removal, as the majority of the time, a user cannot prove that the laptop actually belongs to them.
I,d also feel happier if you could also prove in any way, that you are the legal owner of the laptop in question.
