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%

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.

Started receiving message "Warning -- Acer eLock activated -- Optical Device Drive Locked".


For that you need to disable lock in bios.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios .
Then you can see bios enter in bios and load optimal defaults.
Then save settings and exit.
If elock is enable then disable.
If you are not able to enter in bios if it ask for password then you need to reset bios.
For that you need to open back cover of laptop then find motherboard and pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes then all settings defaults.
Then check.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Got secondhand acer aspire x3200cannot log on ,asking for password from former ownwer,can i bypass this


It is possible to bypass it if its just the User's password but not the Administrator's Password

on the Logon Screen, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL keys and another Logon Dialog Box will appear, type administrator in the Username Field and press enter without entry any password. You will be logged on if there is no Administrator's Password then Go to Control Panel => User Account, Select the User and unset the password.

Thanks

I'm unable to log on to my laptop. when I turn on my computer and click on the icon with my name nothing happens


try pressing
ctrl+alt+del (two times) you would enter a screen where you are asked to enter your user name and password
just enter those and you would be in
if you dont have a password leave it blank


then do a system restore.
hope this works and yuor computer would go in a normal state
