Question about Acer PC Desktops
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:
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...
