When you lost windows login password, you can get into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to recover windows password while you lost user account password, but if you forgot administrator password, there's no way to change it, you should use utility to recover admin password. Yesterday morning, I forgot my Windows admin password. In the end, I successfully retrieve my Windows password by using Windows Password Seeker. It's worth a try.

Somehow, somebody has manually placed admin password for your bios. Thats the only way it can be done. Try this

Introduction to BIOS Passwords The best method to reset a BIOS password depends on what BIOS the computer has. Common BIOS's include AMI, Award, IBM and Phoenix. Numerous other BIOS's do exist, but these are the most common.
if (!window.netshel_ord) { netshel_ord=Math.random()*10000000000000000; } if (!window.netshel_tile) { netshel_tile=1; } document.write(''); netshel_tile++;
Some BIOS's allow you to require a password be entered before the system will boot. Some BIOS's allow you to require a password to be entered before the BIOS setup may be accessed.
The general categories of solutions to reset a BIOS password are:

  • Using a Backdoor BIOS Password
  • Resetting the BIOS Password using Software
  • Resetting the BIOS Password using Hardware
  • Vendor Specific Solutions for resetting the BIOS Password
Using a Backdoor BIOS Password Some BIOS manufacturers implement a backdoor password. The backdoor password is a BIOS password that works, no matter what the user sets the BIOS password to. These passwords are typically used for testing and maintenance. Manufacturers typically change the backdoor BIOS passwords from time to time.
AMI Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported AMI backdoor BIOS passwords include A.M.I., AAAMMMIII, AMI?SW , AMI_SW, BIOS, CONDO, HEWITT RAND, LKWPETER, MI, and PASSWORD.
Award Backdoor BIOS Passwords One reported Award backdoor BIOS password is eight spaces. Other reported Award backdoor BIOS passwords include 01322222, 589589, 589721, 595595, 598598 , ALFAROME, ALLY, ALLy, aLLY, aLLy, aPAf, award, AWARD PW, AWARD SW, AWARD?SW, AWARD_PW, AWARD_SW, AWKWARD, awkward, BIOSTAR, CONCAT, CONDO, Condo, condo, d8on, djonet, HLT, J256, J262, j262, j322, j332, J64, KDD, LKWPETER, Lkwpeter, PINT, pint, SER, SKY_FOX, SYXZ, syxz, TTPTHA, ZAAAADA, ZAAADA, ZBAAACA, and ZJAAADC.
Phoenix Backdoor BIOS Passwords Reported Phoenix BIOS backdoor passwords include BIOS, CMOS, phoenix, and PHOENIX.
Backdoor BIOS Passwords from Other Manufacturers Reported BIOS backdoor passwords for other manufacturers include:
Manufacturer BIOS Password VOBIS & IBM merlin Dell Dell Biostar Biostar Compaq Compaq Enox xo11nE Epox central Freetech Posterie IWill iwill Jetway spooml Packard Bell bell9 QDI QDI Siemens SKY_FOX SOYO SY_MB TMC BIGO Toshiba Toshiba Remember that what you see listed may not be the actual backdoor BIOS password, this BIOS password may simply have the same checksum as the real backdoor BIOS password. For Award BIOS, this checksum is stored at F000:EC60.


The BIOS password can be reset on any system. Some systems are easy, others are more difficult. Any BIOS password can be reset with sufficient time, money and effort.

It looks like either the laptop HDD has failed or has become dislodged. Remove the HDD coverplate and ensure the HDD is correctly seated and secure it.

As to the ghosterr.txt problem the biggest cause is a dirty/scratched disc.

How do u d0 a facrory restore on an acer 9500


Hi,

Start the computer, once the ACER logo appears, simultaneously press ALT + F10 to start the restore utility and follow the on-screen instructions.


If you don't have a recovery partition then you will need to use the recovery disks that you may have got when you first got the laptop.



Regards.

Output a ghosterr.txt message when I use the Restore CD's


You can change the default abort file (ghosterror.txt) location and name by specifying the switch -afile=filename where filename contains the path and name of the error file you wish to create.

Example: ghost -afile=c:\errorfile.txt

Please try this switch and post your error file if you are successful.

Continuing formatting trouble


Hi Shawn, It sounds as though your recovery disk has Norton Ghost incorporated into it, thus the call for the Ghosterr.txt file. Most recovery disks are just modified Windows installation CDs and if you boot to them they will immediately go into the Windows recovery which is what Sandrew was trying to walk you thorough. Having said that I?ve found a few other references to this type of issue and has usually been a result of CD read errors. - Try cleaning the recovery disk, if there are severe or numerous on it or if it is dirty that could be your problem. - If that doesn?t do it try cleaning your CD drive with a good commercial cleaner. - If that fails another option is trying a conventional Windows installation CD. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
