Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just bought an Acer Aspire 7720 notebook which was a display model. Unfortunately, to my surprise, no one seems to know what the password is to get on it. Is there a way to reset this password?

    Do not reformat the drive. That will not help if it's a bios password. It will only help if it's a windows password.

Removing the password especially that embedded in the mainboard is difficult. Passwords are usually stored in a specific component of the mainboard.
If you can get to the configuration settings (i.e., reboot and hit F2, or Delete depending on what is displayed on the screen as the computer boots), you may try to Restore to Default Settings. If you have no other option, you may need to reformat the drive.

Reset BIOS? how to


With both PC and LAPTOP Motherboards,Pc Motherboards are easier to Wipe Passwords than laptops because of ease of getting to the Jumper on the motherboard normally by the battery on the motherboard.I would suggest looking online for the motherboard manual which should show you where the bios reset jumper is.Laptops are just the same but a lot harder sometimes to find this jumper. Hope this helps

Harddisk Security


Truthfully the only solution I have seen for this is to contact the manufacturer. They will need to verify ownership to proceed. You can attempt to short the pins on the motherboard, but that is not as easy as it sounds and will require some research and disassembly of your machine, which i dont advise.

Good Luck!
