Hello, can help me, my laptop ACER EXTENZA 4630 SERIES, why i can open the password bios when i re install the laptop..? thanks

Yes by default the bios is unprotected/no password. All you have to do if you want to setup bios password just go to bios then create supervisor password then it will have password everytime you need to access the bios. For info. bios password is not related to re-installation / installing your OS.

1. Reset the Motherboard by either removing the CMOS battery or the CMOS jumper and putting them back.
2. Go to your BIOS settings and check if the settings are right or even restore to default.
3. Check the cables ( This is a common problem)
Hope this helps

D600 pc reads no bootable devices--srike F1 to retry boot

You will need to go to CMOS usually F1 or F2, or Delete on Boot-up to enter Setup - find the start-up or Boot Sequence order and set to CD.
Place OS (XP or ??) in CD and reboot, tapping the F12 to give you the start-up boot sequence menu.  Select Boot from CD, and try recovering your operating system - if not recoverable you must install a fresh OS but would recommend making a new or 2nd Windows OS so you don't remove all hardware drivers including motherboard and ethernet and then tell the 2nd OS to find the drivers within the first OS directory when installing fresh OS - Operating System.
Everyone should have a back-up of all their drivers and a copy of their operating system or a recovery disk but this is hind-site.
Good luck.

Cmos setting not saved

Look at the CMOS reset jumper, located near the battery:
For normal operation there should be a cap shorting pins 1 and 2.
Set the jumper correctly, make sure it really shorts these two pins (once I've seen a jumper cap that didn't have the metal connector inside, only plastic), replace the battery and it should keep the CMOS settings.

It's asking you to go to set up to enter the correct time in the BIOS also when rebooted make sure your time zone is set correctly

New motherboard will not boot

It appears that you are aware of Motherboard jumpers.

1. Reset BIOS settings by CMOS Clear jumper ( Location of jumber is given on the sticker / manual of motherboard )

2. Try updating BIOS of your motherboard from the following link :

3. Plug only Optical Driver / Hard disk at a time and check.

4. Contact your vendor and get the motherboard replaced.

Hi, your query, "is there a way to fix it?" if you intend to use if again normally, afraid no way; if you want to recover/retrieve important data/files, probably: 1. seal the drive in a sandwhich ziplock plastic bag, leave it in your freezer overnight, install as a secondary master in another PC, autodetect in CMOS, if detected, boot to your OS, copy whatever you can real quick, soon as it reaches ambient temp chances are it will no longer be readable again; or 2. assuming it is an electronic problem, using a torx driver remove the pcb, get hold of another hd of same brand & model, borrow the good PCB and tempo use it, again install as secondary master in another PC. if no available 2nd HD at hand, install and while in CMOS autodetect HD, feel around the PCB components and determine which heats up faster than the others, spray it with a contact cleaner, if detected continue to your OS to back it up, continue spraying to maintain lower temp; 3. assuming mechanical problem (though highly unlikely) lightly tap with a small rubber mallet (rubber coated handle of a side cutter will do) bottom of drive and install; 4. assuming an electrical connection problem, reheat the 4 power terminals at the bottom (+, gnd, gnd & +) and/or remove the pcb and check/clean contacts at the back of the PCB and its mate, 2 sets; 5. assuming you can do component level soldering and can use a VOM, check surface mounted fuses on PCB near power connector. All of the above are last resort and are not guaranteed to revive your HD. Most require that you run your unit open with possible risk to electrical shock. If you are not comfortable, it would probably be to your advantage to seek the services of a qualified service professional. Sometimes it work, sometimes not, hope it be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.

PC Getting restart after installing RAM of different speed

1. Make sure the memory is seated firmly in the motherboard and the clips are fastened. 2. When it boots up try to hit the key to get you into the CMOS setup screen. If you make it in the CMOS setup save and exit. 3. Follow the motherboard instructions to clear the CMOS. Involves jumper or removing battery etc.. the process varies with manufacture and model. If it starts working check the capacitors on the motherboard to see if they are blown on the bottom, leaking brownish gunk or bloated. 4. Put the old memory back in and see if it works normally. May not be compatable or backwards compatible.
