Bios password is there any way of finding/resetting bios password on these boxes? I just purchased my brand new HP Entertainment laptop 31st Oct., 2007. Whenever I try to enter the BIOS SETUP, I'll be asked for the password which I don't know so I couldn't remove windows vista preinstalled on my laptop. what can I do? Product name = HP Entertainment dv6426us. Thanks. Big-Sam1

ACER ASPIRE 5630 BIOS FIX
I had the same problem, with a friend's laptop, an acer aspire 5630.
I unscrewed everything I could but failed to find the cmos battery
I reset the password by shorting out jumper 3 on the motherboard.
this is to be found under the memory modules which can be accessed by removing the largest of the access plates found on the bottom of the unit.
(you may want to ground yourself first in case of static)
Pull gently outwards on the two retaining clips at the edges of the memory module(s), this should allow them to spring up for easy removal.
jumper 3 looks like two gold interlocking number threes - this design makes it easy to short out by touching lightly with a metal object - I used a small phillips screwdriver.
Good luck

Hi...
You know that your Laptop is still under warranty, re-installing the system will void the warranty.

If you like to take the risk then find the CMOS battery under the keyboard or the bottom part of the Laptop, covered with screwed openings. But usually HP places them under the keyboard... find the locks of the keyboard and free them...

Remove the battery and short the positive and negative plates of the battery holder... that should reset the password of the Laptop.

GOOD LUCK.... Don't forget to Fixya me on the ratings...
