Acer 290 bios password reset - Acer TravelMate 290 Notebook

Answers :

Hi, Keith.

Remove the bottom of the notebook.

See if you can remove the CMOS (round, silver) battery for 30 minutes.

If not, on the motherboard, note the bank of four switches. Normally, they \015\012would be off. I believe that if you turn on switch 3, the BIOS and boot password \015\012would go away.

Hope this helps.
You need to open the memory area back panel.. there is a small battery there that needs to be unplugged from it's jack...
\015\012be sure there is not power supply plugged in and the battery pack in the notebook is removed before opening the back panel on the memory area of the notebook... ground yourself to a metal object and touch the outside vga plug in socket to discharge any static electric charge before doing this repair....
\015\012leave the small battery unplugged for two minutes...
\015\012plug it back in the socket... and fully setup the laptop again ....
\015\012place the battery and power it up
\015\012this should clear the bios settings ... now go into the bios features and configure the settings as specified on acer's website based upon your particular notebook

Have an acer 5510z notebook Model BL50. I want to know if there is a cmos reset jumper switch anywhere. When I switched it on it functioned for a minute and then everything died except the fan.It seems like the processor is dead but is there a safety feature like thermal shutdown if processor gets too hot? If so, is there a bios reset. I opened up the laptop and examined the processor thermal paste. Looked like needing replacement so I did that. I'm getting no error beeps at all. No OS can boot.

I do not believe the Acers have reset buttons or switches. I have reset the Cmos by removing the cmos battery, shorting the two pins with another cmos plug with the wires connected together. I then powered the motherboard up until the BIOS loaded, bu ... PC Laptops
