Re: Serious Challenge and Thus Solution Needed for Acer Travelmate 251LC


I have tried all F keys, many times over, with or without the fn key.. but there is no choice of changing or selecting boot order so that I can boot from my CD.
It has to be a password reset or removal from the Phoenix bios on the lappy.
I could do that even if I know where the BIOS battery is.... but that can be possible only if I have disassembly diagrams or manual.
For now I am stuck..

Now the problem, It is not booting into Windows now ( windows XP Home ) licensed version updated to service pack and all..

Now I wanted to see if there was a problem with hdd so tried booting into safe mode, that also is not working.. it reboots itself.

I wanted to install other XP version on it, so went into BIOS, Shitty !! thing is the bios is password protected and I have forgotten and can't find where the manuals etc are or I would have reset the jumpers and made the password go away.

I can't find its dismantling or repair guide too, so help me and analyze, let this be a challenge for all !

Thanks in advance.
Is the laptop you are talking about has power jack,display port,USB port And modem port,line in jack all situated in back side or not?...

I have disassembly procedure for 250 series which cover 251lc..

Do let me know.

Re: Serious Challenge and Thus Solution Needed for Acer Travelmate 251LC

Received it, and saw the diagrams, as I suspected the BIOS battery is below the trackpad or near there.. and not below the keyboard.
I will open it and share what has been the progress of the bios password.
Thanks

Re: Serious Challenge and Thus Solution Needed for Acer Travelmate 251LC

All things happened.. I opened it, removed the RTC battery connector for more than 30 minutes, and reattached it again and switched it on, the password prompt again rang up !!
See I know that it is the OS which has corrupted, slight chance of HDD but I doubt it.
SO as per instructions on the web and other places which say that the battery should be dis attached for 20 minutes or so, I followed it.. but still when I pressed F2 that bloody password prompt popped up !! and wouldn't take any password...

Now I will dis attach that battery for one whole night, in the mean time you all think as to how the password can be disabled..

One important thng is, if I remove the hdd from the PC and then switch it it on, it will boot from the cd but then the files would not be copied to any hdd coz it is not there, so that won't help too !!
