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 can i reset my magicjack it keeps telling me that is not on that divice.


If you have bought t from someone else it will not work as it is not registered to your computer.

You need to change the account details and then re-plug the magicjack into the USB again and it will download the new details.

You need the phone number and the password from the previous owner.

Then you can change the email address it is registered to and the password to your details.

I forgot my hp laptop passward?


google imageburn, it's an iso burner save to desktop and install. then go to

http://trinityhome.org/Home/index.php?pid=1 and download the latest stable iso image.it has a password reset utility in it. Teas "ALL" instructions carefully as you can wipeout your HDD if not careful.

Breaking into someone elses computer without their express consent is illegal. The password will be wiped out so they will know that someone has broken into their computer. Think before you act. This infrmation is for legitimate purposes only. I do not condone entering someone else's computer without their knowledge. Myself or this site will not be held responsible for any unlawful acts or errors caused by operator judgment or error.

Good luck

Unknown password on emachine laptop


Do you really expect us to tell you how to break into someone else's computer?

Are you trying to spy on your spouse, or did you just steal one for your own personal use?
