So I have an Acer Aspire E1-571. I'm trying to get into BIOS(you know when computer/laptops starts and you press F2 and an old fashion panel comes up). But the problem is that when I press the F2 button It asks for a password. Buttt I never set a password for bios (don't even know how to do it) I tried asking at Acer Community Forums but there responses are dull and not helping much. soooo... any help i guess?


Resetting that password usually requires one of the following:

  • Remove BIOS battery (on motherboard inside laptop) for several minutes
  • Short CMOS jumper on motherboard (Clear CMOS, Clear RTC)
  • Remove laptop battery for several (12 or so) hours
