Forgot the BIOS password for your Acer laptop? Sometimes we need to access the BIOS to make some hardware changes to the computer but the BIOS is protected and secured by some password. Resetting login password for Acer is easily but when turns to the BIOS password, most users feel helpless. In this article, I will introduce the tops 3 ways to reset BIOS password for Acer laptops including Aspire, VivoBook, Zenbook,etc.
Removing the CMOS Battery is a common way to remove a BIOS password. But this method involves fiddling with the computer hardware and components, so people unfamiliar with laptop hardware are not advised to do so.
Some computer manufacturers build in backdoor passwords for their own technicians to use so they can access the BIOS when the hardware is being serviced. So if the BIOS password was set by the manufacturer, you can look up the BIOS manufacturer to see if they use a standard password. However Acer seems to refuse to assist customers with BIOS password issues unless you send the laptop to them and paying a $100 fee.
1 This site, How to Reset an Acer BIOS Password, makes mention of the Acer proprietary software Acer eSettings Management, that has a pre-requisite of Acer Empowering Technology. I read a comment on this site, Windows 7: Acer eSettings Management is not on my acer laptop, which says that eSettings Management is now called the Launch Manager, from the Acer downloads page - a dubious claim. I have installed the Launch Manager, regardless, but I was not able to find the software after the reboot.
If you can still load the operating system, you can reset the password with Acer eSettings Management (Acer eSettings Management --> Click BIOS Passwords near the footer of the screen --> Use Create Password or Remove Password option).
Before getting started with the password reset process, the reader must know the difference between a BIOS password and a login/admin password. BIOS password is used to add an additional layer of protection at the hardware level so no hardware configurations can be made without authorization on the Acer laptop. The login/admin password for Windows is the unique password for every user. Here, we will discuss the process for resetting the Acer laptop administrator/lock screen/BIOS password.
Having a password reset disk makes your job quite easier but not having a password reset disk will require you to use UnlockGo Windows Password Reset Tool. UnlockGo (Windows) uses the most efficient and advanced password-cracking techniques and supports administrator and login password reset operations.
There is a CMOS battery in the Acer laptop that powers some hardware of the computer, like the clock and other essential operations. You will have to take some hardware apart to gain access to the CMOS battery. Once you have located the CMOS battery on the motherboards, carefully take it out and wait for 20-25 minutes and reinstall it, and the BIOS password will be reset.
Acer has a specific backdoor password for its technicians, and you may not have that password available. You can try the standard password available online, but Acer recommends sending your laptop to certified Acer technicians for this process.
It is important for every user to reset the Acer laptop password without losing data. All of these methods have some restrictions and limitations where you may have to erase your data. UnlockGo (Windows) not only offers better control over the password reset operations, but you also get to enjoy a smooth process with everything explained on the screen. Give it a try and enjoy the powerful features of UnlockGo (Windows) for login or administrator password reset tasks.
Every Acer computer and laptop comes with a pre-installed BIOS software. This BIOS software is generally protected and secured by some password. Because it is a common tendency for any person to forget passwords, this article specifically discusses about resetting or recovering BIOS password of any Acer computer or laptop.
On an Acer Aspire 7720 laptop that has a BIOS password, it is impossible to change or remove it, even using Acer eSettings Management (it keeps saying invalid password), even using cmos cleaner, even d/cing the clock battery for an hour (it resetted everything but the password prompt is still there when trying to access the BIOS). No checksum displayed after keying in 3 invalid passwords either. Any ideas ?
Two possible approaches can be used when it becomes necessary to reset the BIOS on an Acer computer due to a lost BIOS password. Some Acer computers have a special jumper that can be used to clear the BIOS settings, including the password, while others require the clock battery be removed. The battery removal process works on all Acer computers, including desktops or laptops, and it is often the only alternative available when the BIOS passwords need to be reset.
If you forget the Windows 10 or Windows 8 login password and are locked out of the Acer laptop, you can follow the method 1, method 2 and method 3 to reset it without the old password. If you lost the BIOS open password or administrator password, method 4 will tell you how to solve the trouble.
The following methods work well on resetting the login password for Acer Aspire series, Predator Helios series, Acer Swift series, Acer Spin series, Acer Switch series, Acer Nitro series, Acer Chromebook,etc.
This way tells you how to use iSunshare Windows Password Genius to create a password reset disk and use the disk to unlock the locked Acer laptop password. iSunshare Windows Password Genius has three versions (Windows, Mac, Android), so you can create a password disk with a rooted Android phone even you don't have another Windows computer or Mac computer.
As a Windows user, you may be familiar with the WinPE which is a mini operating system and works on repairing other Windows systems well. Therefore, a WinPE drive is also a useful password reset disk. However, compared with the way 1 above, it's difficult in some way to create a WinPE drive and use it to reset the lost password. To get more information about this way, let's continue reading together.
Most of the laptops have the factory reset function, including the Acer laptop. However, as using the factory reset function may cause data loss or other troubles, it isn't recommended to utilize the function normally. If there are important data on your laptop, I strongly recommend you to reset the password with tools, but not apply the factory reset feature.
So most BIOS manufacturers have a fail-safe that will show what is called a checksum of the password once you enter the incorrect password more than 3 times. For example, I have an Acer laptop at home and I went ahead and set a BIOS password and then entered the incorrect password three times.
The simplest way to remove a BIOS password is to simply remove the CMOS battery. A computer will remember its settings and keep the time even when it is turned off and unplugged because these parts are powered by a small battery inside the computer called a CMOS battery. If we pull out this battery, the computer will forget a lot of its hardware settings, including its BIOS password. This should not be performed on Laptops if you are not experienced working with laptop hardware.
