Acer ASPIRE 5520 Model ICW50. When I press the power button the light comes on and the fan spins but it shuts down every few seconds and repeats this action continuously. I have narrowed it down to a faulty motherboard. Has anyone been able to isolate the cause of this problem to a component or components on the motherboard?
where the BIOS battery is located at on the Acer TravelMate 5520 laptop? I locked myself out of my computer and heard that removing the BIOS battery for an hour and then putting it back in will reset the BIOS password.
Face login is a pain. It never works. How do I disable it? I have searched the manual, internet and contacted acer (they wanted £65 to answer and my laptop is only two weeks old!) I am about to do a factory restore in the hope that it will give me a fresh start with an option NOT to choose face or any login for that matter!
Now I am not after any passwords or any thing but I think this is disgusting.
My wife has an on boot bios password and wanted to disable it. She asked me to do it because I work in IT so it shouldnt be a problem.
I logged in with her password. Went security, user password, Press enter, typed in existing one then new password blank and confirmed it with another blank password. Rebooted and now it prompts for a password and we are stuffed.
Is this me being stupid did I do some thing wrong is that not the way to do it ? Its appauling. We had a customer in work whos laptop was sent away to be sorted because he had the same problem. At the time I thought he was bit silly but now I can see how it could happen

When I turn the computer on a blue box comes up with "Enter administrator password or Power on Password. After three attempts a code error comes up with the following 50510665. How can I reset computer?
Error Message: "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password"
Changes made to system that caused issue to occur: Laptop was stolen from car two weeks before Christmas, but was recovered by police and returned to me a month later. Upon retrieval of laptop, the battery was dead and the power pack/cord & mouse wasn't returned with the laptop. I had a dell power pack/cord that fit and used to turn on the computer. A black screen appeared with a blue box asking to "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password." After 4-5 attempts to enter the password that was set for windows, the system disabled itself. I would have to remove the battery and plug in power cord to reset the computer which continues to ask to "Enter Administrator Password or Power On Password." I do not want to restore or reset the computer by losing all my personal data that was stored prior to it being stolen. Is there anyway to override this or is there a "generic password" to use as a bypass this screen to get it to operate and back to the Windows login screen?
When I first loaded up my Vaio the Startup Assistant booted by itself and I unchecked the box to stop booting on startup. After the while the Startup Assistant started booting up by itself even though the box is still unchecked. I thought by recovering to factory settings and unchecking the box would fix it but it has started booting up again.
I am having problems with my brother's acer laptop. It's an Acer Aspire 5520. The first time we experienced this problem I tried removing the battery and I placed the battery back again. I plugged the ac adaptor into another outlet. I was able to get a a greenlight on the battery and on the hard drive. For some reason I am not able to get a greenlight on both indicators. I tried plugging the laptop on another outlet. It seems I'm not able to power it up anymore. Is it the battery or the power adapter?
