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.

Trying to install new flash player,, it tells me that i need to enter root password, ive never put a password on laptop so i cant enter the password as i dont know it,, can i have new password without...


Hi,

It sounds like you have an Acer with the Linux Lumpus OS installed on it.

When it ask's you for the root password the password is root. Just type root into the password box. and then install the flash player.

How do i connect my wireless mouse to my acer netbook?


Try plugging in the receiver then in the Bluetooth settings on the computer with the mouse on click on "find new device". If it asks for a password try typing in "0000" which is usually the default password. Hope this helps.

When turning on laptop its asking for a password.didn't set 1


new computers recommend an administrator password so you can set it up. The password would be one that you want to put in. So just use one that you will remember and it will then ask you to confirm the password that you entered. Remember to write your chosen password down somewhere in case you forget it at a later date. For example if oyu ever have to restore your computer to factory default settings it will ask you for the password that you created here. So enter anything as long as you remember what it is. Lots of people just put the word admin for their password because it is easy to remember. But it is up to you.
