    Thanks but if you can't simply tell me then I'd rather not have someone I don't know from a bar of soap accessing my PC....

    My apologies - perhaps I misunderstood the type of solution offered here - even so, it is not the type of assistance require. Thanks

    ok, first lets try disableing the elock service

    press start -> run -> type in services.msc

    look in the list, try to find elock service, right click Stop, now if you try pluging in a usb device, memory camera etc does it work?

Hello! I live in Norway an have a problem with my computer - it says that acer e-lock i activated and i cannot use my dvd/cd station. I am not very good in computer "thing" so you have to explain very...


The Acer Elock is used to protect your computer from any external device or access like flash drive, any external media device, optical disc DVD etc.
To make the DVD CD station active you need to go to acer elock interface and enter the password which you first entered on the computer while doing acer elock system.

This link can help you as it has a step by step method and screenshots also.

The only disadvantage of this Acer Elock system is if you forgot the password you need to go to Acer Custoer Center and get it fixed

Please check if the above things will help you and let me know.

Acer Elock problem

here is the elock guide it will shed some light on what is happening. You may be able to disable the elock service from
start -> run -> type in services.msc
Look for elock service by scrolling down to it. Right click properties,change the startup type to "disabled" and stop the service, on some elocks this is enought to stop it from working. but it depends on if they've changed it recently. post again here if you need furthur assistance.. Reagards.

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.
