System Utilities
BIOS Setup Utility
The BIOS Setup Utility is a hardware configuration program built into your computer’s BIOS (Basic Input/

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:
1.
After the error is displayed, select the Enter Unlock Password option on the screen.
2.
An Encode key is generated for unlocking utilities. Note down this key.
3.
Execute the UnlockHD.EXE file to create the unlock code in DOS Mode using the format UnlockHD
[Encode code] with the code noted in the previous step, as follows:
UnlockHD 76943488
4.
The command generates a password which can be used for unlocking the HDD.
Password : 46548274
5.
Key in the password from the previous step to unlock the HDD as shown.

Removing BIOS Passwords:
To clear the User or Supervisor passwords, open the DIMM door and use a metal instrument to short the J1
point.
Cleaning BIOS Passwords
To clean the User or Supervisor passwords, perform the following steps:
1.
From a DOS prompt, execute clnpwd.exe
2.
Press 1 or 2 to clean the desired password shown on the screen.
The onscreen message determines whether the function is successful or not.

Using Boot Sequence Selector
The Boot Sequence Selector allows the boot order to be changed 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 BS 2 to
change the boot sequence to HDD | CD ROM | LAN | Floppy.

Using DMITools
The DMI (Desktop Management Interface) Tool copies BIOS information to EEPROM to be used in the DMI
pool for hardware management.
When the BIOS displays Verifying DMI pool data it is checking that the table correlates with the hardware
before sending to the operating system (Windows, etc.).
To update the DMI Pool, perform the following steps:
1.
Boot into DOS.
2.
Execute dmitools. The following messages report to screen to confirm completion:
•
dmitools /r ==> Read dmi string from bios
•
dmitools /wm xxxx ==> Write manufacturer name to eeprom (max. 16 characters)
•
dmitools /wp xxxx ==> Write product name to eeprom (max. 16 characters)
•
dmitools /ws xxxx ==> Write serial number to eeprom (max. 22 characters)
•
dmitools /wu xxxx ==> Write uuid to eeprom
•
dmitools /wa xxxx ==> Write asset tag to eeprom (max. 32 characters)
The following examples show the commands and the corresponding output information.

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
43
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.
4. Remove the battery pack.

Chapter 3
Disassembly Process
IMPORTANT: The LCD Module cannot be disassembled outside of factory conditions. If any part of the LCD
Module is faulty, such as the camera, antenna or LCD panel, the whole module must be replaced.
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.

Clearing Password Check and BIOS Recovery
This section provides you with the standard operating procedures of clearing password and BIOS recovery for
the Aspire 5251/5551G/5551. The machine provides one Hardware Open Gap on main board for clearing
password check, and one Hotkey for enabling BIOS Recovery.
Clearing Password Check
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 and Battery from the machine.
2.
Disconnect the RTC Battery cable and locate the J1 jumper.
3.
Use an electric conductivity tool to short the two points of the HW Gap.
4.
Plug in AC, keeping the HW Gap shorted. Press Power Button utill BIOS POST is finished, then remove
the tool from the HW Gap.
5.
Restart the 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, for enable BIOS Recovery process when 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:
1.
Format the USB storage disk using the Fast Format option.
2.
Save ROM file (file name: NEW75x64.fd) to BIOS.FD in the root directory. Make sure that there is no
other BIOS file saved in the same directory.
3.
Plug USB storage into USB port.
4.
Press Fn + ESC button then plug in AC power.
5.
Press Power button to initiate system CRISIS mode.
When CRISIS is complete, the system auto restarts with a workable BIOS.
6.
160
Update the latest version BIOS for this machine by regular BIOS flashing process.

FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) List
This chapter gives you the FRU (Field Replaceable Unit) listing in global configurations of Aspire 5251/5551G/5551. Refer
to this chapter whenever ordering for parts to repair or for RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization).
Please note that WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, you should check the most up-to-date information available on your
regional web or channel. For whatever reasons a part number change is made, it will not be noted on the printed Service
Guide. For ACER AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Acer office may have a DIFFERENT part number code from
those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the local FRU list provided by your regional Acer
office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.
NOTE: To scrap or to return the defective parts, you should follow the local government ordinance or regulations on how to
dispose it properly, or follow the rules set by your regional Acer office on how to return it.
