If you are referring to the BIOS locking the PC, you should be able to find a button or jumper under the keyboard to reset the bios back to factory defaults, hence, no password.

Sata port password


The password was set by the hard drive owner. Nowadays hard drives can be encrypted and therefore locked and a unique password is required.

How do i unlock my acer labtop


Kindly try this Windows Password Recovery Basic... A CD/DVD, or a bootable Windows PE USB is required (instructions included).

There are many password reset tools, but I haven't personally tested them. Windows Password Recovery Basic is a widely spread edition though...

Once reboot the computer with CD/DVD/USB, remove the lost or forgotten password and then log in to your computer without any password.


Here is its official website, Hope it helps

I just bought Acer Aspire Netbook, I have forgotten my password and cannot get into anything. What can I do??


If it is the logon-password for Windows, re-install the Operating System, and set a new password.

If it is the power-on password, find the original sales-receipt, and telephone ACER, to prove that you, and not a thief, is in possession of your computer, and ACER will assist you.

Need SATA HDD password for acer aspire 5100


When everything gets done loading the screen says:

Unknown Disc
<There is no disk in this drive.>

it gives that error message 4 times on the "select partition" list

Reguardless of what i click (besides Quit) being Install or Delete, I get the Blue Screen of Death

"PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA"
Technical Information
STOP: 0x00000050
setupdd.sys Address F77F8245 base ar F77CA000

I did some research and I came up with possible RAM faultyness, so, I switched the RAM chips from my Acer to the AW (which obviously work, or else i wouldnt be typing this) and i get the identical blue screen error

What bugs me about that specific error is before it even says "Click button to boot from CD" it says RAM cleared... video shadowed etc. etc.

From beginning to end this is what i did:
1. Swapped out new HD
2. Used Utility disc to set-up HD
3. Attempted to install XP
4. swapped RAM chips
5. Attempted again

im at a complete stump to what to do to fix this... any help would be GREATLY appreciated

Acer M1100 Desktop w/ a different HDD and Optical will not boot


Disconnect the hard drive and dvd from the motherboard
Power on
If you get video and cmos access power off and connect dvd
repeat and connect hard drive
getting video and cmos access has nothing to do with the hard drive...with no hard drive or optical drive you still would have access to cmos
go 1 step at a time to find bottle neck

Computer is locked unable to use it


I guess it's windows what is locked.
You can figure out your forgotten password with OPHCRACK
justdownload the right one for your operateing system burn it out to a discand boot the laptop from it, it can figure out the password most of thetimes supriseingly fast. to try out everything it's got shouldn't takemore or less around 20 minutes, but there's a slight chance that it won't work, but they say that Success rate: 99.9%
Charset: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ

If it's asking for password right after swich on than it should be a bios password, in that case try turning off the laptop and removeing the battery for 1-2 hours to reset CMOS settings, on some modells under the cpu there is a hole, try to push the button in it for a few secs and see if it helps.

If it's locked at bios (no very start of the computer turn on) you should try to remove the battery for about one hour, and check back after, or, one some models, you have under the cpu, a very little hole where under witch, your have on the motherboard the reset cmos switch (you have to press that button during 2-3 sec once cpu is shuted down) then reboot and see

When i boot up im asked for hdd password,i dont know it,after three tries system is disabled


You can try clearing it in the BIOS.

When the machine boots up, and before the OS starts, you should be able to press DEL or F10 or whichever key allows you into the SETUP routine. Usually you see a message telling you which key to hit.

Look thru the BIOS settings for the one showing HDD password, and clear it.
