What is the boot order for acer aspire 7741


To use the Acer recovery CD you need to boot up with the CD.
Go into the BIOS setting and scroll through the settings until you come to Boot order. Then move the CD/DVD drive up as the first boot device and the hard disk as the 2nd boot device.
When you boot up the Acer with the recovery CD in the CD/DVD drive then it will boot up with the Recovery CD.

Has no operating system


If you bought the laptop 2nd hand, then most likely they wiped the hard drive before selling it which is very common, especially with business-owned laptops. If you are lucky you may have a CD that came with the laptop to reinstall the base operating system and system drivers. Otherwise, try to get it from the person you bought it from.

Acer Aspire One has Hard drive Password frozen


There should not be a password set in the BIOS unless you set it up with one. You can clear the BIOS to BRAND NEW state. Acer can guide you through this if it is under warranty. If it is not, write back and I will help you do this.
