Having problems with your Acer Aspire One Netbook 8.9" Notebook ?

My bios password is locked and i cannot access my computer


Answers :

The real fix is to disassemble the netbook to access the cmos battery. Not hard to do. 1. remove all power (battery- adaptor) 2. remove keyboard first tabs at top of unit with flat blade item. 3. remove all screws #1 phillips will due till 1 silver one that is a #0 Crosstip. Pop Cover off. (don't forget the touchpad connection first) 4. remove screws from WiFi card and 3 on sound/usb board. 5. flip boards over and reomve battery then wait at least 30 mins to one hour. Then put all together in reverse.
\015\012If done right you will be able to access the Setup (F2) and setup
Your pretty much screwed. you can try installing a new O.S. and try it that way
