Reset cmos. Remove the little round cmos battery from the motherboard for about 5 seconds, then replace & reboot. Problem should be solved. Good luck.

Hi, I've got an Acer Aspire 5315-2639 for reference. I've been attempting to restore the default factory settings but it seems as if no matter what I try it won't comply. It won't accept my password...


If you forgot Windows password, you can create a Windows password reset bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset your lost or forgotten Windows password, i have created a bootable CD with the tool Windows Password Breaker and reset my administrator password successfully.

Password forgotten


Unfortunately, there are only 2 ways around this. Reinstallation of te OS will wipe out everything but allow a new account to be created. If this is the case, create 2 accounts both with admin priveleges for future scenarios. Restore her important files from her backups ( she did backup on a regular basis, didn't she?).
If there are no backups and she doesn't want to lose what's on there, Google "password recovery software" and choose from the multitude of hits that are returned. I can't recommend any of them as I have never had to use them before.
Thanks for using Fixya.com. Keep us in mind for future needs and please rate this tip accordingly.
