    You generally have to go to the manufacturer for assistance. This is due to so many laptops being stolen...

    They will require you to prove ownership etc, then will assist you in unlocking the system.

    I don't know for certain if this solution will work for you, or if the PW is saved outside of the bios.

    As a last ditch effort you might d/l this file:
    ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_9300/bios/v1.10.zip

    which will update the bios and perhaps reset any password installed? Be VERY sure of what you're doing when running this utility, as it can kill your computer if done wrong!

    This bios update is what is listed on the Acer website for your model, but in the ftp site for your same model there are also v1.14.zip and v1.17.zip files.

    Your only other option is to contact Acer's technical support for a workaround. They probably have a backdoor password or utility to reset it.

    This information is intended for experienced users. It is not intended for basic users, hackers, or computer thieves. Please do not try any of following procedures if you are not familiar with computer hardware. I'll not be responsible for the use or misuse of this information, including personal injury, loss of data or hardware damage. So use it at your own risk.

    A. By Using the Motherboard Jumper:

    In most motherboards CMOS battery is soldered, which makes it difficult to remove the battery. In this case we use another method.

    Almost all motherboards contain a jumper that can clear all CMOS settings along with the BIOS password. The location of this jumper varies depending upon the motherboard brand. You should read your motherboard manual to check its location. If you don't have the manual then look for the jumpers near the CMOS battery. Most of the manufacturer label the jumper as CLR, CLEAR, CLEAR CMOS, etc.

    When you find the jumper, look carefully. There will be 3 pins and the jumper will be joining the center pin to either left or right pin. What you need to do, is remove the jumper and join the center pin to the opposite pin. e.g. if the jumper joins center pin to left pin, then remove it and join center pin to right pin. Now wait for a few seconds and then again remove the jumper and join the center pin to left pin.

    Make sure to turn the PC off before opening the cabinet and resetting the jumper.


    B. By Using Software:


    I have found that BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
    BIOS/CMOS Password Recovery Tool is a program that works instantly to remove any lost or forgotten BIOS/CMOS password. Simply boot your PC to DOS and execute the program, and get access to forgotten BIOS/CMOS passwords in just seconds

    If your Acer Aspir is displaying "System Disabled" and a 5 digit number on boot up then just download onto another machine.

    http://sites.google.com/site/dogber1/blog/pwgen-5dec.zip

    Run the program and enter the 5 digit code.

    Usually the top suggestion is the correct one but if not then try the others.

    Worked perfectly on Acer Aspire 4920 and machines of that era.
