Major repair issues. I have a new and good bootable hard drive installed on a system that had recently failed. Now I can't boot due to a blue screen flash during the boot process. Also, cant access bios due to Acer password. No cracks will work to remove password unless you can boot. I have run many programs with Hiren's bootable USB drive still no luck. Stuck in a loop. Please help!

You may have to talk to Acer and be prepared to supply proof of ownership.

Hi all
I just found The Aspire 3620 have the posibility of a USB boot, you have to go to the BIOS options, BOOT and in the list choose Hard Drive and push ENTER (plug the USB memory before you go to the bios options) and there, will see the USB memory.

So now you can BOOT with your USB flash memory.

Have fun

Is retarded I know
People will die knowing that their Aspire 3620 with Phoenix BIOS was not supporting this feature...
