Looks like that lappy will be sent back to Acer. Last time I tried to get a password for bios removed by them I had to send it in.

Thanks for your advice, will certainly have a look at that

I wont send it into Acer, I doubt they would take a look at it and I'm not going to pay around 100 to fix it to be honest. I think I would rather get a new one :S

It wont work. Insantly after you power on the prompt comes up, the method you sent me needs access to a CD-ROM or floppy drive which of course is protected by the password. Unless the third link has changed, it will not work.
