    i have a Acer Aspire One D257 - 13478 with a bios password.
    the screen says "Enter Current Password" and after 3 attempts it says "System Will Halt"

    Is there Anything I Can Do?



    Thanks In Advance
    Paul

    password on bios or hard disk :confused:
    If on Bios maybe you can try uncover the laptop don't forget to remove the battery then try to remove the inside battery or connect between the battery poles like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihwj_MctVo4
    but for HDD try if it's working on another pc if it dose move your data you may need low level format wish could help :eek:
