Remove HDD/BIOS Password Utilities
This section provides you with details about removing HDD/BIOS password:
Remove HDD Password:
If you key in the wrong HDD password three times, an error is generated.
To reset the HDD password, perform the following steps:
40
1.
On another computer, run HDD_PW.exe.
2.
Enter “hdd_pw 15494 0”
3.
Chose one (1) of the generated passwords.
4.
Reboot the locked computer and key in one of the passwords from number 3 above.
Chapter 2
Removing BIOS Passwords:
If you key in the wrong Supervisor Password three times, System Disabled displays on the screen as below.
To reset the BIOS password, run BIOS_PW.EXE on a second machine as follows:
1. At a command prompt, type bios_pw 14452 0.
2. Select one string from the list.
3. Reboot the system and type the selected string (in this example qjjg9vy or 07yqmjd etc.) for the

Using Boot Sequence Selector
Boot Sequence Selector allows the boot order to be changes without accessing the BIOS. To use Boot
Sequence Selector, perform the following steps:
1.
Enter into DOS.
2.
Execute BS.exe to display the usage screen.
3.
Select the desired boot sequence by entering the corresponding sequence, for example, enter BS2 to

Machine Disassembly and Replacement
IMPORTANT:The outside housing and color may vary from the mass produced model.
This chapter contains step-by-step procedures on how to disassemble the notebook computer for
maintenance and troubleshooting.
Disassembly Requirements
To disassemble the computer, you need the following tools:
•
Wrist grounding strap and conductive mat for preventing electrostatic discharge
•
Flat screwdriver
•
Philips screwdriver
•
Plastic flat screwdriver
•
Plastic tweezers
NOTE: The screws for the different components vary in size. During the disassembly process, group the
screws with the corresponding components to avoid mismatch when putting back the components.
Chapter 3
45
Pre-disassembly Instructions
Before proceeding with the disassembly procedure, make sure that you do the following:
1. Turn off the power to the system and all peripherals.
2. Unplug the AC adapter and all power and signal cables from the system.
3. Place the system on a flat, stable surface.

Chapter 3
Disassembly Process
The disassembly process is divided into the following stages:
•
External module disassembly
•
Main unit disassembly
•
LCD module disassembly
The flowcharts provided in the succeeding disassembly sections illustrate the entire disassembly sequence.
Observe the order of the sequence to avoid damage to any of the hardware components. For example, if you
want to remove the mainboard, you must first remove the keyboard, then disassemble the inside assembly
frame in that order.

Use the following procedure as a guide for computer problems.
NOTE: The diagnostic tests are intended to test only Acer products. Non-Acer products, prototype cards, or
modified options can give false errors and invalid system responses.
1.
Obtain the failing symptoms in as much detail as possible.
2.
Verify the symptoms by attempting to re-create the failure by running the diagnostic test or by repeating
the same operation.
3.
Use the following table with the verified symptom to determine which page to go to.

Intermittent Problems
Intermittent system hang problems can be caused by a variety of reasons that have nothing to do with a
hardware defect, such as: cosmic radiation, electrostatic discharge, or software errors. FRU replacement
should be considered only when a recurring problem exists.
When analyzing an intermittent problem, do the following:

If any error is detected, replace the FRU. Rerun the test to verify that there are no more errors.
Undetermined Problems
The diagnostic problems does not identify which adapter or device failed, which installed devices are incorrect,
whether a short circuit is suspected, or whether the system is inoperative.
Follow these procedures to isolate the failing FRU (do not isolate non-defective FRU).

Clearing Password Check and BIOS Recovery
This section provide you the standard operating procedures of clearing password and BIOS recovery for Acer
Aspire 4333/4733Z. Acer provides one Hardware Open Gap on the mainboard for clearing password check,
and one Hotkey for enabling BIOS Recovery.
Hardware Open Gap Description is as follows:

DIMM bay
Steps for Clearing BIOS Password Check
If users set BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and/or User Password) for a security reason, BIOS will ask
the password during systems POST or when systems enter to BIOS Setup menu. However, once it is
necessary to bypass the password check, users need to short the HW Gap to clear the password by the
following steps:
1.
Power Off the system, and remove HDD, AC, Battery and DIMMs from the machine.
2.
Open the Bottom Cover of the machine and locate the G2 and G3 jumpers.
3.
Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
4.
Plug in AC, keep the short condition on the HW Gap, and press Power Button to power on the system
until BIOS POST is finished. Then remove the tool from the HW Gap.
5.
Restart system. Press F2 key to enter BIOS Setup menu.
6.
If there is no Password request, BIOS Password is cleared. Otherwise, please follow the steps and try
again.
NOTE: These steps are only for clearing BIOS Password (Supervisor Password and User Password).

BIOS Recovery by Crisis Disk
BIOS Recovery Boot Block:
BIOS Recovery Boot Block is a special block of BIOS. It is used to boot up the system with minimum BIOS
initialization. Users can enable this feature to restore the BIOS firmware to a successful one once the previous
BIOS flashing process failed.
BIOS Recovery Hotkey:
The system provides a function hotkey: Fn+Esc, to enable the BIOS Recovery process when the system is
powered on during BIOS POST. To use this function, it is strongly recommended to have the AC adapter and
Battery present. If this function is enabled, the system will force the BIOS to enter a special BIOS block, called
Boot Block.
Steps for BIOS Recovery from USB Storage:
Before doing this, prepare the Crisis USB key. The Crisis USB key could be made by executing the Crisis Disk
program in another system with Windows 7 OS.
Follow the steps below:
134
1.
Insert a USB stick/floppy.
2.
Execute WINCRIS.exe and click Start to create the crisis disk.
3.
Plug USB storage into USB port of the system that needs to be rescued.
4.
Press Fn + ESC and the power button to power on the system.
5.
The system will go into crisis mode and recover BIOS.
