Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
Unlike desktop computers where we can simply reset it by grounding the jumper, laptop computers needs a motherboard replacement to get rid of the BIOS password since these laptops do not have jumpers. Not even setting it back to it's factory state can get rid of the BIOS password.

The BIOS password is a hefty security measure, and consequently, is difficult and in some cases impossible to disable if you do not already know the password that was set. Dell offers a recovery service if you can prove purchase. Acer does not provide any kind of easy solution, but most use a BIOS developed by Phoenix, and you might (and thats a big might) be able to recover the BIOS (a.k.a. wipe the original, which requires a password, and replace it with a 'fresh' one). If you are interested in this endeavor, I came across a handy tutorial if you want to try it out. http://forum.notebookreview.com/sager-clevo/326954-case-you-kill-your-phoenix-bios-bios-recovery-methods.html

It appears that someone has set BIOS password on your computer. This issue is not supported by any manufacturer under standard warranty or they will try to charge you for it. However, if you have forgot BIOS password then you have to reset CMOS jumper setting. Please follow the below steps:
Open the Laptop back panel. Locate the CMOS battery, remove it & then with the help of a screw driver keep on pressing the terminal inside it and turn ON the computer for 10 secs and Turn Off (make sure you keep on pressing the terminal with a screwdriver while turning ON). It will clear the BIOS setting. Now, fix the CMOS battery & restart the computer. This will take care of the issue.
Thanks and regards,
