I suggest that you remove the system battery, on the motherboard, and do not short anything.

Hi,

To disable the bios password on your laptop, you will need to remove the cmos battery on your laptop for some minutes and insert back, the cmos battery is located on the motherboard of your laptop, once the cmos battery is removed from the motherboard for some minutes, the bios password will be reset, and the bios password will be disable.

Take care.

I have acer laptop. It model no. BY25. I want to know its counfigruation. It mean it is a celeron or pentium-4? Pls urguntly send.


It appears that your model designation is incomplete; I find it described as a 'Travelmate 270' with the motherboard BY25. This motherboard is spec'd to support Mobile Pentium 4M with a clock rate of 1.4-1.6 GHz.
If you want a complete characterization of your system, both hard- and software, download the free (for personal use) Belarc Advisor. The only requirement is the presence of IE 4.0 or later since it is used for presenting the report:

Lose TravelMate 270 Series Notebook..bios paswoed


In order to remove password an (educational) solution is to open your laptop back with a screwdriver carefully and remove the bios battery (its a small silver colored round one) and put it back after 5-10 minutes. Then you can close the laptop back and access the bios setup utiliy by pressing the f2 or the f number displayed on startup and replace or deactivate the password. Another solution is to use a backdoor password according to the manufacturer and deactivate the password (search googlefor it) or use a small software utility like !BIOS if i remember correctly to retrieve the password but it may take some time. I hope that helped!

Bios password problem


try this,

members have reported that they were able to remove their Acer BIOS passwords by simply opening their notebooks and removing the CMOS batteries for 30 minutes.
Once your BIOS password is removed, you will need to press the <F2> key during POST (Power On Self Test) to enter the Acer BIOS setup.

if that don't work, acer support charges 100.00 to reset the password, What a rip-off.

(exept go to the laptops manufacurer and pay(a lot) him to remove the password !)
