Acer :: How Can I Turn Off BIOS Password

Dec 25, 2009

I recently upgraded my laptop to Windows 7 through a clean install. Now I must have enable something I didn't want to because now it asks to put a password in before it boots. I know the password, that's not the problem.

The problem is I'd rather not have it ask me, and there's always a danger of it locking up on me if it gets input incorrectly.

So my question is, how do I turn it off? I did a clean install so I don't have most of the crap Acer throw in, including eManagement Settings, which I heard may have the solution to my problem. I only have the Acer Bio Protection, the fingerprint reader, and I tried turning it off there, but to no avail.

Acer Aspire E1-531-2438 :: When Turn On Computer Gives Message In Blue Window - Enter HDD Password

Oct 12, 2014

I hit enter eight times, and I get a choice of entering a password or continuing, when I continue I can go on to windows. If I choose enter a password I get a blue window with a KEY. I can take the eight digit number key, and enter it in a program on another computer, '' which gives me the password. I enter the password into my laptop (acer aspire E1-531-2438) and it leaves the blue window, and I can continue either with the HDD loading windows 7, or I can load a cdrom or dvd.

This is great. But if I reboot, and hit F2, I enter the BIOS, and choose security, and I see that the HDD password is still set. If I hit enter, I can enter the HDD password, but when I enter the one I just used, it tells me it is invalid.

I have also tried to kill the power, and startup again going into BIOS, but the HDD password I just used is still invalid.

Acer :: 5730 Boot Bios Password And Wanted To Disable It

Aug 9, 2009

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

Acer Aspire M5-583p :: Hard Drive Password / Can't Get Into BIOS

Oct 12, 2014

i was wanting to boot from a usb stick to try out ubuntu. and acer rep told me that in order to do that, i needed to set a password in the bios system. so i did so, and turned off security to set the password. when i boot now, i get that little blue screen to put in my password, and i know what is is, but when trying to turn that off and using f2 to enter the bios normally it won't let me. it will ask me in a different format for the password.

My password that i put in is blue. and it takes me to the default screen where i can put in another password to get into windows. acer told me i needed to send in the computer and pay 100 dollars which isn't gonna happen anytime soon. i really need to get into the bios system to change the order up the boot sequence so i can try out ubunu. or any other program i want. i just tried to update the bios driver, and it still asks me for a "sato security password" just to clear the air. it has some number and letters associated with the pop up.

Oct 6, 2014

i was wanting to install ubunu, but i can't get into the bios without a password. someone told me it's' a administrative password. someone told me it has nothing to do with the hdd password. i need to change the order of the bootup for this to work. id rather not pay for this. i also know removing the cmos battery won't do any good either. is there a cracker or patch i can use? i was gonna download the latest software for my acer aspire m5-583p laptop but didn't because it would ask for a password.

Dell :: Does Your Fan Turn On When In BIOS Only (Studio 1555)

Jul 28, 2009

can someone with the Intel 4500MHD graphics test this?

Reason why I need a quick reply by 3pm PST tomorrow is that after that time I'm going to send my Laptop to Dell for them to investigate the fan issue.

fan turns on too often. tried undervolting, using arctic silver 5, switched from t9550 to p8400 already

if any of you 1555 owners can boot into the BIOS and stay in there for 5 minutes, can you just observe if teh fan goes off or not? Mine does, even after a cold boot (when i haven't used the laptop within the last hour).

HP/Compaq :: BIOS Password Protected

Dec 15, 2009

I got a hold of a Compaq Evo n620c in which the BIOS was password protected. I took out the CMOS battery and had it out over 24 hours in the hopes of reseting the BIOS. No luck. I was able to put in another HDD that had Windows XP installed, tne tried to flash the BIOS. I tried in the HP drivers site and was unable to flash the BIOS. The error read that the BIOS on this machine is password protected. Question is...How can I flash the BIOS or otherwise get rid of the password prompt at BIOS? Is there a generic password to do this or is there another way?

HP/Compaq :: Anyone Know The Back Door BIOS Password

Apr 22, 2010

Had a venturous youngster tamper with my laptop yesterday, and that person managed to set a bios password. The machine will boot with out it, but it is requesting an administrator password in order to access the BIOS settings. Heh, I wouldn't have even noticed if I hadn't decided to load Ubuntu 10.04 for the first time.... Needed access to the boot order.

So, does anyone happen to know the back door password or any other option for me to get this fixed? It would be easy if I could pull the mobo ID from the OS, but HP thought ahead on this and I fear that they may have done the same thing with the password issue.

HP/Compaq :: 6710b- BIOS CMOS Password

Jan 1, 2009

I have a Compaq 6710b that was given to me for work. My friend put a password on it that requires me write in before the computer will boot in order for me to log-in to my work account. I believe that this is called a BIOS or CMOS or a boot password. My friend said that it is for extra security. I know the password and have no problems getting past this point, but I do not want to have to enter this first password to get to where I log-in onto my work account. The computer was not like this when I got it and I do not want to take it to a tech at work and explain to him what my idiot friend did. The friend does not know how to change it back so that I do not have to enter this password.
