Acer Aspire E5-511P :: Password Control Can Be Changed In BIOS?

Jan 8, 2015

Acer manual suggested password control can be changed in BIOS. I have Aspire E5-511P. The security page in BIOS does not work. I can scroll with arrows in other pages but nothing happens on Security page. Password at boot has Disabled but every boot asks for password. Is there a repair for BIOS? Also, the Support page on this site does not recognise my model of Aspire.

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.

Acer Aspire M5-583p :: Can't Boot From USB In BIOS / Password Lost

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.

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 :: Travelmate 370 BIOS And Password Recovery

Sep 21, 2007

Due to some mulfunctioning of my TravelMate it cannot recognize the BIOS administrator passord anymore.

how to reset it?

just working on the CMOS battery doesnt work for that password (only resets the BIOS user password).

is there any jumper or contact on the motherboard to reset?

Can I flash a BIOS and get rid of it?

Where can I find a copy of the BIOS? it seems that ACER Bios utility works under windows and requires to input the BIOS password for resetting.

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 :: How To Format My Aspire 5920 Without The Password

Mar 12, 2009

I recently had some trouble with my Acer Aspire 5920 notebook. A virus got through to it (luckily without any major damage).

I sent the notebook repairs and I already got it back and working...almost...completely as new.

I wanted to format the notebook and reinstall the necessary programs. This way I can get rid of all the stuff I don't need/want.

The problem is that eRecovery from the eEmpowerment tools needs a password to start the formatting. Normally if you don't fill in a password in the first place then there's no password needed when you want to format the system.

In my case, the notebook asks for the password anyway so my question is this:

How can I format my notebook (using eRecovery or another application) without the password?

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 :: Aspire 3620 Bios

Apr 28, 2009

I recently upgraded my aspire 3623 from a M370 to a M740. The bios needs to be upgraded to operate speedstep of the new cpu. Currently it runs at 1.3 instead of the 1.7 it's supposed to. At bootup it says 1.733 gh but in EVEREST it says it's running 1.296gh. I can't find on the ACER site where to get the BIOS upgrade download. Is there a 3rd party location anyone knows about?

Acer Aspire M :: Cannot Access BIOS

Jan 3, 2015

I'm a high school junior with a year+ old Acer computer that has broken down twice and is now out of warranty.  I purchased this computer with my own money.
My Aspire M laptop will not boot due to the 'boot configuration file being invalid', at least, this is what the 'Recovery' blue screen states.  The blue screen offeres to 'Press Esc for UEFI Firmware settings, but is not responsive.  I've tried F2, F8, F10, Alt+F10, F12, Space Bar, Delete and Break to try to activate the BIOS interface, all equally unsuccessful.
I followed the instructions to purchase recovery tools from Acer, but without being able to access the BIOS to set the boot order, I've just sunk another $25 into a laptop that doesn't work.

Acer Aspire 5750 :: BIOS Does Not See HDD

Mar 3, 2015

I have a 4 different HDD's that I have tried.  Frequently the BIOS does not see it.  After a few reboots, the HDD eventually shows up and the OS boots just fine.  It can run for days without any issues and then suddenly have trouble detecting any HDD.  I have a little better luck my samsung HDD. It will always eventually work.
