Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
Our elderley neighbour just went into a home and we were given his acer 3500 that he has password locked. There is no backup (forgotten password) recovery disk. Of course he cannot remember what the psswd is and we cannot use the computer to it's fullest. How can we get around this.
In Most of the computers ( if it has a backup recovery inbuilt). When computer starts keep on pressing F11 key on the top of your keyboard. In some computers this function is on F10. But make sure when you do system recovery you will loose all data if you would like to go for destructive recovery. If you want to backup ur files first dont go for destructive recovery but choose other recovery option.
If you dont have any backup system then you might have product key sticker somewhere on you computer. If its window Xp home then borrow XP home from someone and when it ask for product key enter that product key. THis way you can reinstall Operating system.
Hope it helps
