Re: computer is locked unable to use it
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% Charset: 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
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.

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.
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.
If it's locked at bios (no very start of the computer turn on) you should try to remove the battery for about one hour, and check back after, or, one some models, you have under the cpu, a very little hole where under witch, your have on the motherboard the reset cmos switch (you have to press that button during 2-3 sec once cpu is shuted down) then reboot and see
I just purchased an Acer Aspire 5735 notepad laptop , after originally creating a username and
password to logon I soon shut it down . Later when I tried to logon on again my computer would not
recognise the password I typed in . I am unable to log on . I wish to know how to reset another password so that I can logon to my new laptop . Vista is my operating system .
On the logon screen press the crtl+alt+del twice till it will give you a window that ask for the username and password, erase the username(if there is) and type administrator no password and press enter. You should be able to logon to the administrator account. If your successful you can change the password of your previous account
u can login but at login screen press ctrl+alt+del twice then screen
will appear in black colour with username and password then type
username as administrator and press enter it will login then after
logging in go to control panel,user accounts double click on user and
change the password of user or delete that particular user account and
create a new one and restart the machine .
