You didn't say wheather the password was for the computer or Windows. 1. If the password is for the computer then you can change it in the BIOS by pressing F2 when the computer boots. This will take you into the BIOS. Here accros the top of the menu you should find a tab called security. Once opened you'll find where the password is entered or canncelled. 2. If it's in Windows you can reboot the computer with the Windows CD. You'l need to do an operating system reinstall. Once Windows asks if you want to install a new operating system continue from there. Two screens later Windows will ask if you want to reinstall the operating system to repair the present system. Reinstalling will delete all passwords.

I've looked at the ACER Website and it appears that you should try to boot to SAFE MODE by pressing F8 at boot. If you're able to do so, you should find the ACER eRocovery application in the Programs Menu. This may allow you to recover from a hidden recovery partition, or it may require you to have made a set of recovery discs with the eRecovery Utility that came with the system. If you did not do so, then your only alternative would be to contact ACER and ask if you can purchase a set of recovery CD's.
I've had a lot of luck contacting ACER Corporate at the following phone number and pleading my case for the product owner and gotten great customer service this way, much better than calling the regular support number.

Can't remember password


BIOS password remove alternatives:

1. Reset Password BIOS via Backdoor BIOS Password.
2. Reset Password BIOS via Software.
3. Reset Password BIOS via hardware.
4. Reset Password BIOS via default manufacturers.


OK, here is my guide to Remove Acer Bios password computer via Software. This has been done on testing machine Laptop Acer Aspire 3620/ Travel Mate 2420. Anyway, I'm not sure it will work on every Acer PC/Laptop so just consider to do at your own risk, I’m not responsible for any damages caused by this guide.

As we know most of Acer computer (Laptop & Desktop) allow us to setup BIOS in Microsoft Windows (9x/XP/Vista) environment. Great, this is the powerful that help us to remove the BIOS password cuz all we know if we enter Setup Utility at the boot time we have only three times of filling the password and if all wrong then the system will halt.
The program helps us to enter Acer BIOS setup in Microsoft Windows is “Acer eSettings Management” which comes with the CD when we buy Acer PC/Laptop. If you lost the CD then just come to Acer website to download the program.

Unable to login to laptop due to forgotten login password


First thing you can try is:

1: When booting up the laptop Press F8 until you see a screen show that has an option to boot in "Safe Mode"
2: Once it has finished booting up you can Select Administrator and hopefully there is no password set.
3: If there is no password set then login as Administrator and goto "Control Panel", Select User Accounts and change your daughter's password to something she wont forget ;p

if that fails then you can try this

Offers a program that resets your passwords.

Hope this helped.

Acer webcam not working


Is the webcam an Acer webcam also?
If not, determine the manufacturer and go the webcam manufacturer website for your drivers.

It should be a small download. Make sure you back up the driver set-up files once you are done.
