http://www.unlockbiosrecovery.com/Unlock_ASUS_Bios.php can calculate a bios master password for your ASUS notebook for $20 and they guarantee it to work. The bios master password will clear the currently set bios password, giving you full access to bios setup. I repair laptops and I use them when I get a laptop with an unknown bios password or unknown hard drive password and they have always worked for me.
The most common way that most of us know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.Hope this helps
there is no default password on acer systems as supposedly there is in dell's
now a good news bad news situation...
in more recent times they switched how the bios stored the bios password. In the past you can could reset it by remocing a cmos battery (small watch type of battery) from the motherboard for like 30 minutes and then enter the bios setup upon the next bootup.
However now some how gone to a 'security chip' a programable EEPROM chip to store the passwords and if so it's required to be shipped back to acer to be fixed and from what I know is not covered by warranty. If this is the case AND ... I say again AND IF it's STILL UNDER WARRANTY (this is completely not a reflection on fixya, it's affiliaties or my self and should be taken at your own risk, liability, and care) you can take out your hard drive and expose the laptop (not the hard drive) it to an electrical current and then contact acer stating it's not working suddenly and need to fixed. take out the hard drive then put on some wool socks run your feet on the floor and when the laptop in on and powered up touch it should do nicely. This of course is to be taken as entertainment and is in no way endoresed by myself or fixya or any of us affiliates or advertisers.
If the password you forgot is the user password, reinstalling the operating system will help you. If the password you forgot is the bios password(one which should be entered before boot up), you could reset it by removing and resetting the button cell present in the mother board.
