There is a way of resetting the administrator password.
You need to use a so-called 'emergency boot cd' which uses a little piece of software to check and reset the password on the machine.

Two of those tools can be found here:

and
http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/cd080526.zip

give it a go.

If still unsuccessful, try contacting Acer for the Restore cd/dvd if you don't have it, and do a clean reinstall of the machine. Or use a Windows XP OEM disk of the same kind (Home/Professional) and use the OEM key on the sticker on the bottom of the PC to do a clean reinstall. The last possibility doesn't install all drivers, so you'll have to download and install them from the Acer website. Don't forget: no drivers = no internet connection on the pc, so first of all download the drivers, put them on a USB stick or cd, and then reinstall the machine...

Where do I find my computer user id name?? I know my password but can't remember my user name


You can remove or change the Window's User or administrator's password. You need access to a computer with Internet access to download the Hiren's Boot CD and burn it onto a CD. Then insert this CD into the laptop/computer and boot up the laptop/computer with the Hiren's CD and follow the instructions. There are very useful utilities CD and it a Linux boot CD which contains quite a lot of Utility programs including a password removal program. Click on one of these links to download HIREN'S BOOTCD :- http://www.hirensbootcd.net/ http://67.20.82.163/

I have forgot my password for my computer and cannot access as the administrator only can access my daughters account which has limited privleges


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

or

control panel user accounts

on the users tab,click the name of the computer administrator you can change the password there

hope this helps

Dell Latitude D410, son changed User Name and Password. He doesn't remember either one. How do I reset both?


if you are admin user sign on to your account go to control panel/ user account/ create a new account for your son........(do not delete his old account you may delete access to documents)

if you are not admin user or there is no admin user...
unplug PC, take cover off... take battery (it looks like a nickel, a little bit thicker) for 5 mins... then replace,,, put cover back on plug in to AC...... turn on system once in go straight to user account and delete the password else you will be lock out again once you shut down.

Ok,
let it get to the user log-in screen, hold down Ctrl and Alt and hit the Del key twice, a new log-in screen should appear, in the top box type administrator and leave the password blank and click ok.
See if it lets you in the administrator account and then please post back
