Hello,

LeGin :

To reset BIOS/HDD password XXXXX Acer Extensa 6530 do the following:


for board:

1st option:

look for G77 code in the board and put a jumper
then start the laptop for a minute
after that shutdown and restart
then press F2 check for the password XXXXX XXXXX or not

2nd option:

if you type 3 times wrong password XXXXX BIOS will give you a system error code:
use this file

For System Error Code:

For HDD error code

Same procedure for HDD/BIOS recovery password:

HDD_PW.exe --> for HDD password XXXXX

type:

1. c:\bios_pw.exe "code" 0 --> without quote
2. choose 2
