Having problems with your Acer Ferrari 4002WLMi Notebook ?

Lost password hi ive got an acer ferrari 4002wlmithats got stuck even before it boots its asking for what looks like a bios password, is there anyway i can reset it without taking it apart and pulling out the cmos battery


Answers :

NO.....laptops are built his way for a security reason and there is no bypass gimmick, no hacker tricks. The cmos battery has to be pulled, the two pins in the battery socket on the motherboard have to be "shorted", the laptop powered on and then off and the battery replaced. That is the only safe way to do this procedure. I have included a service guide below for the job.
