No problem! We can recover most Windows admin and other user passwords.
Just download our windows password Recovery Tool 3.0 to recover your lost Windows passwords.
How does it work?

Just use the box below to download the utility. This is a ".exe" file which will burn itself onto a blank CD. Then pop the CD into your locked PC, and
boot from the CD.

If you have an Internet connection on your locked PC then it will automatically upload the encrypted password to our server for decryption. Once
decrypted, we will send you an email advising you where to log in to view your Windows password.

If you don't have an Internet connection to your locked PC, you can extract the encrypted password to a USB stick and upload manually to our website for
decryption.

It supports usb flash drive too.

I need a system recovery cd for my acer travelmate 290. when it is turned on it goes to boot menu and requires a cd to reboot the system. i think it has been wiped out. where do i get a download i can put...


Before you lose all hope of fixing it without having to purchase a fresh system from Microsoft, as the BIOS menu ends quickly press F8 and if the system is still intact you will be invited to repair your system from the hard drives recovery partition. If that doesn't work there are people selling start up disks on the internet, I haven't tried them and cannot comment.
Hope this helps.

Ok so my sony viao vgn nr120e caught a virus. I finally ordered the recovery cds but my cd drive no longer works. I really do not want to replace the cd drive. Is there anyway to bypass the recovery cds...


Buy a 4GB (or larger) USB memory-stick.
Connect it to a different computer.
Copy all the files from the recovery-CDs onto the USB memory-stick.
Move the memory-stick to your computer, and try to install from the files on the USB memory-stick.

System crash


Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.

Download WIN98BOOT.ZIP and HPUSBFORMATTER from the internet normal bootable like a dikette won't work with a usb stick

Depending on the make/model of your laptop you may have to reload everything from CD. Some manufacturers don't supply CD or DVDs in which case they have an utility which enables you to create your own recovery media. Finaly, some have a "restore" partition which you can access by pressing certain keys on boot.
Which ever option you have on your laptop, take note that it will delete everything from your hard drive.
Not being able to conect to the internet/freezing are also signs of infection/malware, have you run a scan? try downloading Spybot from a 2nd PC, put it on a memory stick and load it onto your laptop. it might help
