Acer BIOS password reset

Q: Acer BIOS password reset

I am having trouble reseting the BIOS password on an ACER Aspire 1350. I also have a hard drive password which I can't clear. There is tonnes of stuff around on BIOS password clearing, but does anyone know what will work (and what works best) on the Acer Aspire 1350.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone,
 
I forgot my bios password from my v5-551. There is no 
access possible to the F keys except F2. Besides that i
also have no Access to windows or Linux. When i don't
press anything the screen will stay on the acer logo.
I already know the bios password is stored in EEPROM, 
so removing the battery wil not work. Yesterday i found
a service manual for the v5-571there is some very usefull
information in here, but my device is to different from this
571. Does any one have a v5-551 service manual or know the same steps 
for my mainboard. Thanks for all your help!

Trying to reset the password on and old C400, it is asking for primary or administrator password. I have no idea what to put in there, and can't see if  the computer will function at all!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks! 

A:Need the reset for password on Latitude C400, bios revision A06, original password.?

You'll need to call Dell with verification of ownership -- it may not be worth it though, since the call will cost about $60, which is probably about six times more than the entire system is worth.
The other option is to replace the mainboard - which is probably well under $60.

A:Need bios password reset

Hi, Your notebook is producing a hexadecimal halt code which is stored in ram as a 'one off' and will be re-calculated after a reboot.  This indicates you have one of the later AMI bios's and unfortunately none of the current code generators will work for this - surprisingly, you can still remove a power on password from the machine by removing the rtc cell ( leave the power board connected ) then hold down the power button for 60 seconds before re-inserting the rtc. The bad news is that the rtc is on the 'wrong' side of the system board so will require quite a lot of disassembly. The only other option would be to Contact HP regarding this. Regards, DP-K

A:How to Reset the BIOS password

Hi, Unfortunately,  business machines such as Probooks or Elitebooks have more stringent security than consumer models - they don't produce 'halt codes', the password cannot be derived from the Serial No. and the code is stored in non-volatile memory so removing the RTC cell will not reset the password in this case. If you Contact HP Business support they may be able to send you a customised SMC.bin file which you can use at boot to reset the password. Regards, DP-K

If you have forgotten your password you may disable password checking.To erase the BIOS password follow these steps:Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.Locate the jumper labeled Clear P.W. The jumper is found at the lower right edge of the motherboard.Move the jumper on jumper Clear P.W. to pins 1-2.Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.Hold down the F10 key during the startup process and enter BIOS setup to change or clear the password.After changing or clearing the BIOS passwords, remember to reset the jumper to pins 2-3.

Trying to fix an Aspire E1-531.
 
BIOS previously had password set - which I KNEW.
 
Tried disabling BIOS password by entering current password then pressing [Enter] as 'new password' and 'confirm password'
 
BIOS is still password protected - and it now won't accept EITHER password.
 
Help!

I created an a BIOS account on my HP ProBook 450 G2 and after restarting I have been unable to login using the same password I created it with. When powered on it will ask "Enter Password" and I will enter the password, then it will ask "Enter Password Again" and I'll do so, then again it asks "Enter Password Again" and I enter. After this it takes me to a page that says "On-Screen Keyboard" and I enter my password using the onscreen keyboard. Then it displays the Authentication Failed page saying System Locked. Press the power button to restart the system. How can I solve this problem? Your help will be highly appreciated.

To remove the BIOS passwords you need to short the 2 contacts marked RTC RESET. Remove the memory cover. Look for the 2 contacts between wireless card and memory.   Remove main battery and AC. Use a small flathead screwdriver to short the 2 contacts. Passwords are gone. If STRINGENT SECURITY is enabled this will NOT work. Let us know if it works for you. REO  I must inform you that these services are not endorsed by HP, and that HP is not responsible for any damage that may arise to your system by using these services. Please be aware that you do this at your own risk.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, the hard drive crashed on it and I bought a new one and was going to install a new operating system on it. When I inserted the Windows 7 disk I find out it won't boot from the cd drive. I go into bios to change the setting and there's a system admin password that I didn't know about or don't remember that's keeping me from changing any bios settings. I've researched and tried everything, is there anything I can do to bypass this password so I can boot from the cd drive?

A:BIOS password reset

Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter and remove the battery. Remove the rtc cell from the system board - see Page 57 of your Maintenance & Service Guide. Hold down the power button for 60 seconds. Leave the machine like this for a few hours, then re-insert the rtc cell, plug in the AC Adapter ( leave the main battery out for now ) and start the notebook. Unfortunately, if this procedure doesn't clear the password, it probably indicates that 'Stringent Security' has also been enabled in the bios - if that's the case, there is no way of removing/resetting the password. Regards, DP-K

I need to reset some of the stuff in the BIOS for wireless, etc and the IT guys at my company seem to have mislogged or fogotten the admin pw for BIOS. Anyway they have given me five alrady and non of them work. They say I will have to ship the unit in to Chicago and they will fix it. That will take a WEEK that I do not have. How can I reset the password? The settings in the BIOS I need to change are locked and the message says the setup is locked-enter the admin pw into SECURITY UNLOCK SETUP to enable changes. Any advice is welcomed!

Hello, I  have set the bios password and now the netbook will not let me access BIOS settings although when I turn it on, i can type my password and it lets me boot Windows. Can you help me? When I try to enter bios it asks me for my pass, which is "incorrect". Then it shows me CNU9356MSQ

I have a HP Envy X2 that is prompting for a password to enter the BIOS setup. I apparently have lost the password. I am able to boot windows, but cannot enter the bios setup. How may I reset the password? After entering incorrect password three times it gives halt code: 50495488
