I have recently purchased an acer travelmate 2200 and it was working
fine. I was using the internet when it entered hibernation mode. After
turning it on after plugging it in to the mains adapter, it went to
the bios password screen. I tried to enter my password, which i know,
but i cannot type in the password box, reguardless of which keys i
press, no characters appear in the box. Also, the keyboard functions
such as; turning the moniter off still works, implying that the
keyboard is still functioning correctly.
Any ideas on how to bypass this or get it to work would be much
appreciated ASAP as i need to be finishing AS coursework.
If you suggest anything to do with cmos battery, please indicate its
Thanks in advance
