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.

System Disabled BIOS Problem


Hi. There's so many "fixes" out there but most do not work. The most popular is removing the bios/clock battery mounted on the circuit board but manufactures have started soldering additional batteries onto the board to prevent bios password hacks. However, there are passwords that override the bios and can be obtained from the manufactures directly. You must prove to them that you purchased the computer and send proof of purchase by fax or mail. Aside from these options, my hands are tied. Good Day

My daughter lost her password for her netbook how do I rest it


Hello first of all what operating system is she using if windows xp then boot the machine in safe mode, chances are it came out the factory with no password on the hidden admin, after you boot into safe mode you will notice a new account you haven't not seen before call administrator. choose the admin and once in the account simply go to user accounts and remove her password. if you are running vista or windows 7 then this will not work for you the next option would require software I recommend hirens boot cd 10.6 here is the link bootcd download and extract the file, you need a archive program like winzip or winrar. the zip file wil contain an iso image of the disk that you will need to mount and burn to a disk would use damon tools which is also free. once you have created your boot disk you can now boot your daughters computer from the boot cd, once booted into hirens several tools with appear simply navigate to password tools and follow the step by step wizard that will remove the password in seconds.
hpe this helps please feel free to reply for more detailed support.

Ask your daughter. She set that password, and she needs to enter the password.

Otherwise, find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you (and not a thief) has possession of the laptop, and telephone ACER, and ask for help in bypassing the password.

Acer Aspire 3620 Screen


Check Acer's website for a BIOS update. I've seen a LOT of laptop's screen issues been related to the power saving settings in the BIOS. Sometimes screens going black very fast and not working properly can be caused by that.

The Power Inverter could also be the problem which you wouldn't be able to repair yourself. If you purchased it at Best Buy you can take it to them and they could get that fixed for you (at a charge if there is no warranty with that).

How to restore my acer aspire 3680


You might try this. If it doesn't work, you may have to purchase a recovery CD. It is supposed to come with one.

This is from the Acer website:

Re-install bundled software without CD
Acer e-recovery Management stores pre-loaded software internally for easy
driver and application re-installation.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer e-recovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer e-recovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 In the Recovery settings window, select Reinstall applications/drivers and
click Next.
6 Select the desired driver/application and follow the instructions on screen
to re-install.
At first launch, Acer e-recovery Management prepares all the needed software
and may take few seconds to bring up the software content window.

Below is a link for Acer. You can see if it helps.

Harddisk Security Code - Acer Aspire 5720


Generally you can remove passwords by removing something called the CMOS battery. This battery retains the configuration of the computer when the AC power and main battery aren't present or working.

The battery is generally located in the RAM expansion bay. Locate the battery and remove it. let the laptop sit without ANY power connections for at least 30 minutes. When 30 minutes or more has passed, replace the battery and connect power. Boot the laptop and press F2 to enter the BIOS setup. Generally no configuration is necessary on laptops so just save and exit.
