There should be an image of way your notebook came out of the box on the hard drive. Even though you have a password protected you should still be able to do a restore. When you restart the notebook hold down either the F8 key or F10 key and see if it runs the restore wizard for your notebook.

My Acer laptop will not boot up.

You may have a corrupted video driver due to an update. For some Acers, press and hold F10 when starting the computer. Two beeps will mean that the bios settings have been restored and the machine may boot correctly. If you can enter the BIOS via F2, F1, F10, ESC or DEL, then find the area for display and change it to low resolution then save and restart your computer. Once running, you will need to uninstall the current video driver and have the computer install a new one.

How do i undo my system password?

System Password? No Such Thing!!!

The Three Types of Passwords are:
Bios Password - which is a password the comes up before the machine will even start booting. If you set this password, you should know it. The only way to remove a Bios Password if the take the laptop apart and remove the CMOS battery that is on the motherboard and let it sit for an hour or so until the computer completely loses memory of everything including the date, time, passwords.

Hard Drive Password - The hard drive password is set by the owner of the laptop to prevent thieves from getting to sensitive data if the laptop is stolen. 99% of the time if someone don't know the Hard Drive Password, then the laptop is stolen. If you're smart enough to set the hard drive password, then you should be smart enough to remember it. The real owner can sometimes set the password remotely once the laptop is stolen. The only way to remove the hard drive password is type in the correct password.

Windows Password - This password is associated with a user id that shows up once windows has completely booted up. If you forgot this password, it can be reset depending on the operating system.

Windows 7 requires a Password Reset Disc that everyone should take the time to create if they want to use a password on their user account. Without the disc that was created on that computer you won't be able to get in.

Windows XP and Vista - Turn off the computer, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select Safe Mode and let the computer boot. When it comes to the login screen it will show the Administrator account and the user account for which you forgot the password. Click on the Administrator account and just click ok or enter for the password (hopefully you didn't create an Administrator's password and forgot it too). When you see the windows desktop in safe mode it will look differently. The icons will be bigger and the screen darker, but that is normal in safe mode. Click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts and select the user account for which you forgot the password, then select REMOVE PASSWORD, click OK and reboot your machine. This time let the computer boot up as it normally would.
