how do i turn off fingerprint scanner (acer tm2330)

By mtvandermerwe ·
i am working on an acer travelmate2330. Some pot-smoking monkey who calls himself a technician thought it wise to put a bios password and protect the laptop with the finger print scanner (his own).My client is an old lady who wants nothing to do with this smart Aleck anymore! I have rummaged around the internet left right and centre and still can't find a solution. Help

i'm not buying this too much but if you're serious, check with acer's website in their support pages...otherwise, we don't assist with bypassing passwords; and removing a finger print scanner is the same thing.

TR members do not assist password recovery. Do not respond to this thread

The members of TechRepublic - A Resource for IT Professionals, will not assist anyone in the recovery of lost passwords. You may have a legitimate reason to recover a password. However, we cannot verify your motives and will therefore not assist anyone in what may be an attempt at gaining unauthorized access to a computer system. Due to the open nature of this forum, any assistance given to help circumvent security measures, even for legitimate purposes, would be available for unscrupulous individuals to use for illegitimate purposes. This is a risk that we the members of TechRepublic will not take. Please do not ask questions of this nature on TechRepublic.

If you have a legitimate need to circumvent a password scheme, please contact the vendor for the software / hardware and request their assistance. E.g. Windows XP password recovery issues should be taken up with Microsoft's technical support, Phoenix BIOS password recovery issues should be taken up with Phoenix Technologies, etc.. To those viewing this post: Please DO NOT respond any further to this thread.

Well I suppose the obvious is to remove the persons in question fingers and try them till one works, or you could contact Acer direct for a possible solution here.
