    Strange issue I have here with an Acer Aspire 5720

    It originally had a bios password which I tried to clear, I put in the original password then it asked twice to enter the new password within the bios.

    so I just hit the ENTER key and left the fields blank.

    when the laptop booted up again it is asking

    Enter CURRENT password ?

    I tried to old password, does not work, tried just hitting the ENTER key and does not work either.

    anyone have any methods to solve this issue please?

    I have also tried to short the battery but this does not seem to clr the cmos.

    TIA

    Beyond what you've already tried (and I assume that when you tried just "Enter" you were sure to clear the field of any characters first) we cannot assist with password issues as per the following passage in the site rules:
