Having problems with your Acer Aspire T160 (AST160UA3400) PC Desktop ?

Acer Aspire t160 issues

\015 This Acer Aspire t160 that I'm working on has a bios password that I don't know. How can I get around that? Thie issue with the computer itself is that when it tries to boot to Windows XP it just restarts, and then repeats that same process over and over of booting up, trying to load windows and just restarting. Any thoughts? Drive has been scanned via separate computer for viruses and spyware and it was clean. My plans were to just salvage all possible data and reinstall Windows XP.\015

Answers :

Ok heres how you remove bios password.

Open the door where the RAM is fitted and remove RAM from the holders. Look for two metal bars (GOLD?) near or between the RAM sockets.
Take a papare clip and short the bars out against each other. Replace the ram close the trap and reboot. That should do it
