Einleitung

Forgetting passwords is the worst thing we all have ever faced in our life. Whether it's login password of your social media account or login password of laptop/computer. Most of the time, it can be reset or removed with ease.

But, when it comes to BIOS password, it's not that ease. Even sometimes there's no choice left rather thank replacing the motherboard and that' really very expensive choice.

I own an Acer laptop, at that time I was just a noob about BIOS security and set up a password so that no one can access the boot menu. It was my luck that it wasn't set while booting otherwise I will be in great trouble.

This guide is only for those users who have set up BIOS password on BIOS menu entry. Not while booting into the OS.

There's also an detailed article to remove BIOS password which might help you in different ways. I'll be focused on Acer laptops because I know how to get it done on Acer laptops.

If you don't have a Acer laptop, you should still give it a try. Maybe it'll be useful in your case as well.

What's The Basic Concept

We know very well that all the laptop manufacturers provides BIOS firmwares to the user, e.g updated ones or existing once. In case of Acer, they do provide it on their official website. All you need is the laptp model number or the SNID.

When we flash the BIOS firmware, it'll update the BIOS to improve its performance. But, what if we'll edit some of its content so that the existing password will be removed. Well, it's totally possible and thousands of people are doing it. I'm showing the exact way to do this.

Beow are the situations only under which you'll be able to follow this guide:

  • You should be able to boot into Windows OS.
  • Access to internet to downlad the firmware.
  • Smartness of course.

People are encountering the problem like they can't extract the firmware, or can't flush it. So, i've shown the entire solutions to all the problems so that you can remove BIOS password with ease.

Visit Acer Driver Download Page: "https://www.acer.com/ac/en/IN/content/dr... and enter SNID number or select device model. SNID is located on the bottom of your laptop. I recommend to use SNID number to search your laptop.

  • [Optional for some users] Sometimes 7zip can't extract the entire .exe files, so in this case, Run the firmware .exe file and do nothing Then press Win+R and type %temp%, look for the folder where .exe files are temporarily extracted. Copy all those files.
