Specs: Windows Vista
on my acer aspire timeline 4810t i forgot my BIOS password and my hard disk password. the hard disk password is made by the BIOS so taking off the hard drive doesn't work, taking off the battery that has the BIOS password doesn't work either. I used a program to reset my BIOS and it kind of worked. it will bypass the password but i can't enter my settings when it starts up and it gives me the action to press F2 to go to my setting. when i try to d that the BIOS lock shows up. If i don't try to go to those settings it only shows the hard drive password.

Long story short i want a way to reset, remove, or recover my hard drive password whit out having to send it to the manufacturer or a local computer repair store.

Contact the manufacturer and ask them. Be prepared to prove ownership; if you know that the computer is stolen you would be well advised not to follow this advice.

To lose one password, Mr Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.

Like most, this forum does not offer help for forgotten passwords. Passwords are a security measure, one that is very important to many members of this forum. Many people come to this forum for help in improving the security of home and business computers. If we were to offer help to unknown individuals (and who's intentions cannot be verified) in circumventing this security we would have little credibility.

Another forgotten password saga (another excerpt in my new book LOL)....I can't believe that people that steal laptops actually post the problem in a forum. It's like shooting yourself in the foot.
You may as well use the laptop as a boat anchor
