It depends on the version of the program but just try

start -> run (or hold the windows key and then press r)
type in services.msc

in services listing find the acer service, right click, disable
the startup mode and stop it. restart the pc. You may need to
give the dvd drive or usb drive a new letter from the computer
management. but, unplug the usb devices, and after restart
just plug them back in.

Thanks,
Ekse

MY QUESTION IS HOW DO I Disable the "SECURITY FREEZE LOCK" on my hitachi HTS54503289a300, 320 GB sata hard Drive? originally WAS INTALLED IN MY ACER TRAVELMATE LAPTOP NANUFACTURED IN 2012 BUT THE LAP


Maybe if you can format the disk-but you loose data, maybe there is a program that can do it, probably in linux, or bootable itself, maybe ask acer for master password or something, if you still own original laptop and it runs then try to remove disk encryption while the hdd is accessible with laptop (i think its in bios), otherwise the hdd may be unusable to prevent data theft. you can plug any sata hdd into any sata device if you can hook all the cables, no compatibility issues there. try googling and youtubing for more answers

Screen showing setup is starting services and want do anything else


When your computer won't boot past the title screen or start-up screen, it usually means you have software problems or a virus.
Almost all Acer computers come preinstalled with a Windows operating system, which allows you to troubleshoot the operating system before locking up during the start-up screen.
Whether your problem is hardware or software-related, this technique allows you to access your desktop to retrieve all the items you want from your hard drive before completely reinstalling your operating system.

Click the power button. Within the first 10 seconds, a BIOS keystroke should pop up.
The keystroke to access the BIOS is usually the "ESC"+"SHIFT" keys.
"F8" is also an option for getting to the BIOS.
After keying the keystrokes, the BIOS screen is displayed.
Navigate through the BIOS system, which is the first system that your computer accesses.
The BIOS contains several commands and options to scroll through to modify various ways to start up your computer or reinstall the entire system.
It contains the booting options of your computer.

Navigate to the desired option with the arrow keys and select "Start in Safe Mode."
Safe mode is an operation your computer can run in which it doesn't use full capacity of your computer's hardware or software, but allows you to navigate to your computer's desktop and hard drive, regardless of an existing virus.
Restart your computer in Safe Mode and wait for it to boot.
After navigating to your desktop, begin dragging and dropping any information you want to save onto an external hard drive or USB thumb drive before the virus corrupts the files.

How can i create a password for an single drive of my system, for example i wanna lock my D drive , How can i lock..?


You can tell windows to disallow access to the drive, but all anyone has to do is 're-allow' access, or even put it on a non-windows computer that understands windows drives, and your lock is gone.

If you really want security, check out the free 'TrueCrypt' program at: http://www.truecrypt.org/

That will allow you to lock the drive, and even have the drive completely hidden until you enter the passphrase.

Acer aspire 1 will not load XP


If this a new drive you need to prepare it using a hard drive utility before windows will recognise it. The drive manufacturer may provide this for you. Maxblast is one such program as is Datalifeguard from Western Digital.

Optical Drive Device Locked Acer e lock activated. I cannot use my Cd drive.


Acer eLock Management
Acer eLock Management is a security utility that allows you to lock your removable data, optical and floppy
drives to ensure that data cannot be stolen while your notebook is unattended.

Removable data devices - includes USB disk drives, USB pen drives, USB flash drives, USB MP3 drives,
USB memory card readers, IEEE 1394 disk drives and any other removable disk drives that can be
mounted as a file system when plugged into the system.

Optical drive devices - includes any kind of CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drives.
�� Floppy disk drives - 3.5-inch disks only.
�� Interfaces - includes serial ports, parallel port, infrared (IR), and Bluetooth.
To activate Acer eLock Management, a password must be set first. Once set, you can apply locks to any of the
devices. Lock(s) will immediately be set without any reboot necessary, and will remain locked after rebooting,
until unlocked.

You can try this:

You can reset the system to its default settings (all devices unlocked) by removing the password (leave the password fields blank when changing the password).

You also may be able to simply uninstall the e-lock software in add remove programs.

Is there an icon in your system tray that may allow you to disable e-lock?

Acer optical drive device locked


without knowing which version of the program you got I can suggest for you to:

press start
select run

or

hold down windowskey and press r

type in services.msc

find the elock service, right click properties, disable the service, and stop the service.

you may need to set a new drive letter for the optical drives
(right click my computer - manage - left side disk management - find drives without letters, right click assing or change drive letter)

if you can't uninstall the program? its asking for a password? Its extremely easy to reset the password but would need to know what version of the software your running.

Acer e lock activated??????????????


I have a working workaround solution to this problem - save yourself 100usd (what acer requests from the unlocking) and press the ask me button to send me the free(FREE POST TO FORUM) request, Il give you the workaround, will take less than 10 minutes to solve the problem, really not worth it to pay 100usd for something this silly.

Il possibly soon make a video tutorial on how its done but for now, send me a request and il tell you how to get rid of the problem.
