You cant, the besy u can do is reinstall everything, if u lost the disks, contact acer, they will prolly resend them for a nominal fee.

I need to put this computer back to fact spect. i do not know the passward on it.


I think even with the FKey you're likely to be asked for the password. This is one of the things that makes me hate erasing Acers.

Order a free Ubutu disk. While waiting for it google acer factory password ubutu. The disk can be used to view passwords, but it's a bit technical.

This one issue makes me hate Acer!

(What are the manufacturers thinking! Nobody writes passwords down when they get a new toy! Even if they did, they've always lost it by the time the thing needs to be erased. Enough rant!)

I purchased a acer laptop from a pawn shop,it has a pass word from the previous owner. How can I reset or erase the pass word?


Hi !

If the operating system is windows xp. When logging in put incorrect password and try to press alt key+ crtl key+ delete key at the same time to remove the password.

If Windows XP operating system is using, download from other computer the password reset disk. Sometimes it works and sometimes it works.

First of all back up all of your data on a external storage e.g cd or flash drive then use your recovery disc that came with the laptop to restore your system to manufacturer settings.

Factory settings?


First step should be to reformat the drive as this will clean out the physically allocated files, or try using FDISK

I have a loptop of Acer Aspire5520.I have to formate now but i lost my system backup & restore disk.How can i get this backup.Pls let me know.


Normally , acer laptops have a hidden recovery partition on the hard drive , which contains all of the recovery data so you dont need the recovery discs.

When you boot up your computer and you get the Acer logo etc , try pressing keys to start the recovery - this puts everything back to factory default settings and erases your data.

Also , A program ships with the laptop called 'Acer Empowering Technology - eRecovery' which allows you to burn your own recovery disc - You then use this disc to perform a complete system restore.
