When booting your laptop once you see the Acer logo start tapping ALT + F10 that should boot into the restore partition & let you restore to factory defaults.

How do i reset set my dell laptop to factory settings without an administravive password


The only way is to use the re installation disk that came with the laptop when you bought it. The disk should say something like "Reinstallation" or "Restore". You will loose all content.

Similar to the picture below. May have different wording and color.

If you are not computer literate, I would recommend getting help from someone that has experience.

Master bios passwords


If you are asking for some magic back-door password that will access virtually any Toshiba product....I hate to disappoint but it doesn't exist. If there is a password on the BIOS, either you or someone else placed it there, and without it, you will not access the BIOS. The only option to clear it is to use the BIOS reset jumper on the mainboard, which will return the BIOS to its factory settings.

I set a password to my laptop and I can't remember what it is, how can I get to use my laptop again??


@pinkruthpink

The quickiest way to reset your password is to run System Recovery (aside paying someone from a local computer store and use a software to reset it). Gateway laptops have a built-in recovery mode on the system wherein you can restore the computer to factory default without using a restore discs. (please note that this will erase everything). The hotkey for the recovery is the ALT+F10 key. After you press the power button, you need to hold ALT key and then simultaneously press the F10 key.. Once the recovery menu has loaded, click Restore to Factory Default Settings.


Good luck

I recently bought a Dell inspiron 5000e from the local Goodwill store and I don't know the username required to use this laptop.Is there a way to unlock or reset the computer profile?


Check with your local Goodwill store. they might have set the password from their store. If not, then since the system is new, you can just reset it back to factory image.

Restart your computer and when you see the Dell logo, keep tapping F8. Select "Repair Your Computer". It will give you options how to recover your system to factory image. Otherwise, if you're required to type the password since you don't knows it, you might end up re-installing the Operating system.
