OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios CMOS password computer via Software. Th is has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. A nyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I?m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide. As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS CMOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password cuz all we know if we enter Setup Utility a t the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wro ng then the system will halt. :( The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is ?Acer eSet tings Management? which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you los t the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program. Before you can install ?Acer eSettings Management? you have to install program c alled: ?Acer Empowering Technology? so you?d better to download both of them fro m Acer website and install & restart your computer to be ready for the job. Here is the link of Acer website, just come there and sellect right series/model of your computer to download these programs: [code]ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com[/code] or [code]ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com[/code] Another one program is also very important we will need called: ?CmosPwd? - Cmos Pwd is a cmos/bios password recovery tool. CmosPwd is under GNU Public License. You can freely distribute it. It can be compiled under Dos, Windows, Linux, Free BSD and NetBSD. Download it here: [code]http://www.cgsecurity.org/cmospwd-5.0.zip[/code] Guide to install CmosPwd and remove password: 1. Download & extract to a folder. I put it in drive D like this: d: cmos 2. To work on cmos memory, ioperm need to be installed and running. ioperm gives direct port I/O access for specified ports to user-mode process (ring 3) using Ke386SetIoAccessMap and Ke386IoSetAccessProcess kernel functions. Log on to Windows as Administrator priviledges and do as follow: (see picture): a. Click Start-->Run: type CMD hit Enter on your keyboard. b. now us the CD command of Dos to come to d:cmoswindows. (here is: d: hit enter ; cd cmos hit enter; cd windows hit enter). c. when you are already in d:cmoswindows in drive D then: type ?ioperm.exe ?i? h it enter.
e. Remember if we suc cess remove password then we have to create a password for it and then remove it and click Apply to save to cmos memory. :) . ok.Kill cmos 2 . g. now come to the: Bios Password to see: if you still see password enable. This is very important because sometime s we see it Disable but when reboot the computer they are Enable again cuz the p assword is still in the Eprom and we only clear CMOS settings and make them to d efault settings so never give up this step. good luck & don?t forget to set an easy password later.Kill cmos (try to keep date and time) 0 . we will see: 1 .Abort Choice : Type 1 and hit Enter to clear cmos. type: ?Cmospwd_win. That?s all. to start ioperm service: type ?net start ioperm? hit enter. that means we fail but if we see they are Disable so we are done. f.d.exe /k? hit enter. run the Acer eSettings Management program: start-->program-->Acer Empower Tec hnology-->Acer eSettings Management.
