Guide to remove BIOS password of Acer computer (Both Laptop & Desktop).
\015\012There are four ways to remove the BIOS password
\015\0121. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
\015\0122. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
\015\0123. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
\015\0124. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.
You can contact acer support or search internet for Acer's default BIOS password and that would be real easy for you, But if you are comfortable enough to use Dos you can also try this method.
\015\012OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via\015\012Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire\015\0123620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer\015\012PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible\015\012for any damages caused by this guide.
\015\012As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to\015\012setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this\015\012is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password because all we\015\012know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three\015\012times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will\015\012halt. frown.gif
\015\012The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is\015\012“Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer\015\012PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to\015\012download the program.
\015\012Before you can install “Acer eSettings Management” you have to install\015\012program called: “Acer Empowering Technology” so you’d better to\015\012download both of them from Acer website and install & restart your\015\012computer to be ready for the job. Here is the link of Acer website,\015\012just come there and sellect right series/model of your computer to\015\012download these programs:
\015\012Another one program is also very important we will need called:\015\012“CmosPwd” - CmosPwd is a cmos/bios password recovery tool. CmosPwd is\015\012under GNU Public License. You can freely distribute it. It can be\015\012compiled under Dos, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and NetBSD.
\015\012Download it here:
\015\012\015\012\011Code:\015\012\011http://www.cgsecurity.org/cmospwd-5.0.zip\015\012Guide to install CmosPwd and remove password:
\015\0121. Download & extract to a folder. I put it in drive D like this: d:\\ cmos
\015\0122. To work on cmos memory, ioperm need to be installed and running.\015\012ioperm gives direct port I/O access for specified ports to user-mode\015\012process (ring 3) using Ke386SetIoAccessMap and Ke386IoSetAccessProcess\015\012kernel functions.
\015\012Log on to Windows as Administrator priviledges and do as follow: (see picture):
\015\012a. Click Start-->Run: type CMD hit Enter on your keyboard.
\015\012b. now us the CD command of Dos to come to d:\\cmos\\windows. (here is: d: hit enter; cd cmos hit enter; cd windows hit enter).
\015\012c. when you are already in d:\\cmos\\windows in drive D then: type “ioperm.exe –i” hit enter.
\015\012d. to start ioperm service: type “net start ioperm” hit enter.
\015\012e. ok, type: “Cmospwd_win.exe /k” hit enter, we will see:
\015\0121 - Kill cmos
\015\0122 - Kill cmos (try to keep date and time)
\015\0120 - Abort
\015\012Choice :
\015\012Type 1 and hit Enter to clear cmos.
\015\012f. run the Acer eSettings Management program: start-->program-->Acer Empower Technology-->Acer eSettings Management.
\015\012g. now come to the: Bios Password to see: if you still see password\015\012enable, that means we fail but if we see they are Disable so we are\015\012done. Remember if we success remove password then we have to create a\015\012password for it and then remove it and click Apply to save to cmos\015\012memory. This is very important because sometimes we see it Disable but\015\012when reboot the computer they are Enable again cuz the password is\015\012still in the CMOS.
\015\012That’s all, good luck & don’t forget to set an easy password later.
