I want to add a new password because i cannot remember the old password


you didn't say what computer you are using, but unless you remember the password, and you have only the one account or user, you cannot add a new user. If you have access to the Administrator account, you can change the password.

You call your internet service provider--the company that you use for mail. They will ask you to identify yourself and then can give you your username and password.
Your email address gives you a clue as to whom you deal with for email.

I just bought Acer Aspire Netbook, I have forgotten my password and cannot get into anything. What can I do??


If it is the logon-password for Windows, re-install the Operating System, and set a new password.

If it is the power-on password, find the original sales-receipt, and telephone ACER, to prove that you, and not a thief, is in possession of your computer, and ACER will assist you.

Ok,
let it get to the user log-in screen, hold down Ctrl and Alt and hit the Del key twice, a new log-in screen should appear, in the top box type administrator and leave the password blank and click ok.
See if it lets you in the administrator account and then please post back

I have an old Acer ferrari 3000 series laptop. My 3 yr old nephew was playing with it now everytime i start up it ask for a hard drive password. Dont have a clue what it could be. Also when i press F2 to...


if u don't know the password for the hard drive, u won;t be able to use it !!! U can try to mount that drive to another laptop/computer and than force it to lose the password encryption (u'll need special software and advanced knoledge...). The other option is to send it to the producer (acer) and let them do the job.(expensive !!!)
As for the password that is requested when u press F2, is the BIOS password, and u can get ride of it easily by reseting the BIOS.(u should find info for this in the computers manual)(note: this involves opening the computer case ...)

And ofecourse there is the option where u can try all posible combinations for the password .. it shold take just 2000 years ... lol

I just bought a acer home set up, a few days ago. I gave it a neme, a user name, but NO! password. Now its asking me for a password , that I have no idea of. It gives me an option of a password disk,...


I bet there's a default password, perhaps set at the factory by Acer or the seller (see your invoice), or to the username. It should be noted that your OS is asking you for a password, making it kind of an OS or maker-specific issue, not so general.

I'm not sure any modern OS lets you create a null or weak password either. Make a nice secure one once you log in. Your fingers can remember most of WEINTZL20451719querzintinocrantz for you after the first 2 times.
