I have laptop Acer Aspire 5720z, I have forgotten password and tried every possible option. I have tried pressing F2 at start up but cannot go there.


I have pressed Cont/ ALt /delete - now with the battery out it takes me to the acer start up page then goes to black screen with blue box saying Enter current password.


after 3 attempts of different passwords says password check failed and system halted.

OK ,so removing the cmos battery will not reset your bios password ,but!!!

Ok, I said screw it. I opened the bottom of the notebook, found the backup battery and shorted the contacts. Turned the notebook on and viola the BIOS was reset. Damm it, I hate when people lie to me. The Acer Tech specifically told me you can not reset the BIOS by unplugging the backup battery (OK, I couldn't unplug the damm thing thus the short).

Do this at your own risk !!! sometime this will work on most laptops . :thud:
