Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

2 Answers

Cannot log on without password

Today I password protected my computer. I entered it and than you have to retype to verify. What I did after I entered it was write it down than reentered and it was perfect didn't have to retype. Later on I shutdown and decided I wanted to log back on but it wouldn't accept my password. I have tried all night. I have only had this computer 2 months I also did not receive the operating systems cd which happens to be vista premium nor a restore cd. In reading the manual it says that if you forget the password, which I did not, the only way is to reformat. I created an applications cd and an acer default cd but don't seem to be getting anywhere. Please help. I am not getting anywhere with the company either.

    Thanks service dude but no that did not make a difference either Ive tried everything possible. It's almost like the system accepted but didn't accept it. If that makes any since.

    Comega82 this computer won't even go into safe mode. When it comes up it shows Acer than goes straight to "enter current password:?" Thanks for trying.

It was there in Windows XP, and there this trick worked. But I'm not sure about Vista. Worth a try, anyway.

Otherwise, read http://www.petri.co.il/forgot_administrator_password.htm

Hope this helps

Also There should be restore discs with all laptops so i would call acer to try to get those even if this does solve your problem.

I would like to change my password


Change an Internet Password

Use a bookmark, a known URL, or a search engine to find the password-protected website you are looking for.

Input your username (also called an online ID or user ID).

Look for a link that says "Forgot your password?" or something like "reset password," "reset passcode" or "password help." Click that link.

The website may require you to fill out fields with information about yourself and your account, in order to verify your identity.

If it does, submit the required information.
The website will then allow you to input a new password.

Type a password that conforms to the website's password requirements (for example, the page may indicate that the password has to contain both letters and numerals or that it has to contain a certain number of characters).

You probably will be asked to confirm that password by retyping it in a second field.
Change Administrator password using DOS Command
Use dos comand
The administrator account on a Windows machine is the main, root user name that gives full access to the machine.

Administrators should change this password frequently to avoid unauthorized access to the domain or desktop machine.

This can be done in the Windows Control Panel, or use the "net user" command in the Windows DOS prompt.

Log in to the machine using the administrator username and password.
You can also use an account that has administrator privileges on the domain or desktop computer.


Click the Windows "Start" button and select "Run" or "Start Search" (depending on your version of Windows).

In the text box displayed, enter "cmd" and press the "OK" button.
This opens the command prompt window.

Type "net user administrator <new password>" into the command prompt.
Replace "<new password>" with the password you want to set.

Enter the password again for confirmation.
Once you enter it again, the administrator password has been changed.

Test the new password by rebooting the machine and logging in with the new administrator password.

My computer has adminstation lock/code i dnt know


Hello,

If you forget your Windows password or if your password expires, you must reset your password before you can log on to your computer. This article contains two methods that you can try to reset your password so that you can log on to your computer again. These steps only work if you have previously created a password reset disk for the computer, or if you can log on as an administrator to assign a new password to your account.

If you do not have a reset disk or cannot log on as an administrator, unfortunately, you may have to reinstall Windows XP and all other programs that were installed on the computer before you can use the computer again. This is for security. Without these safeguards, anyone could reset a password to anyone else's computer and gain access to private information.


Please mention which operating system you are using.
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then their is no way to get in other than reinstalling the operating system.
In XP their are two ways to change the password.
1st method - Restart the system and when you see the computer manufacturer's name Dell or HP or any other start tapping the F8 button 5 to 8 times. A menu will come. Choose the safe mode option and then press enter on the next screen on selection of the os. Your computer will now show u a new account by the name of administrator. If you had an admin password then u won't be able to get in here either. But most people dont have this so log in to this account and go to the control panel and you will be able to remove the password for your own account. Restart system and you are good to go.
2nd method ( Required only if you have a password for this hidden administrator account )
Boot from the Windows XP cd. When the cd stops loading at a point press Enter on the first screen, then press F8 to accept the licensing agreement and then press R for repair. When the repair process starts and you see Windows being loaded press Shift and F10 together, the command prompt will open up. Type the following command.
net user user name *
(user name means whatever ur username is that appears on your login screen)
after this the computer will ask u to type a password so just type any password. Better to type a really short one becasue when you type the password on this screen you won't see the cursor moving or your password being typed in.
Press Enter after typing the password.
It will ask you to retype the password. Again the password would be visible when you type.
Press Enter and it will tell you command completed successfully. If it does not work then retype the commands again carefully. Just make sure u type a short password, probably a one letter password and u wont have any issues.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Novo button
This button functions as a reset button; use with caution. Press the
1. Novo button to enter the main interface of OneKey Recovery while the
power is off. You can use OneKey Recovery to restore the primary
hard disk partition (usually drive C) back to the factory default
configuration, including the operating system and the software on it.
Attention: Once done, the system can no longer return to its previous
state. All data on the primary hard disk partition (usually
drive C) will subsequently be lost. So make sure all
important files on the primary hard disk partition have
been backed up onto another hard disk or USB hard disk
drive before this operation.
For details, see “OneKey Recovery4.65 User Guide

2. For the camera check out these key functions....

The following describes the features of each function key.
Fn + Esc: Turn on/off the integrated camera.

3. And for the password...here you go....

Using Passwords
Using passwords helps prevent your computer from being used by others.
Once you set a password and enable it, a prompt appears on the screen each time you power on the computer. Enter your password at the prompt. You cannot use the computer unless you type the correct password.
Make sure that only authorized individuals access your computer.
Establishing different kinds of passwords requires that other possible users know the proper passwords in order to access your computer or your data.
As many as three passwords might be needed for your computer: the Supervisor password, the User Password, and the hard-disk drive (HDD) password. When the Supervisor password is set, only the Supervisor password entitles you full control of the computer.
• User password
If a user password is set and Password on boot is enabled, a password prompt appears when you turn on the computer. Unauthorized users cannot get access to configuration data.
You can also use the user password to enter the BIOS Setup Utility, but once the Supervisor password is set only a part of the options can be set.
• Supervisor password
With a Supervisor password, you can get full control of the computer. It also can be used as a power-on password, the same as the User password. Also, when you enter the BIOS Setup Utility with a Supervisor password, you are entitled to set all of the options.
• Hard disk (HDD) passwords
Once an HDD password is set, you need to enter it to get access to the hard disk. You can set the HDD password through either the User Only selection or the User + Master selection in the BIOS Setup Utility.
Note: If you set passwords through the BIOS Setup Utility and you put your computer into sleep mode by pressing Fn + F1, the following describes the behavior of the computer when you bring it out of sleep mode:
• You are prompted to type the Windows log-on password rather
than the User password to resume operation.
• If an HDD password is assigned to any hard disk drive, the hard
disk drive is unlocked automatically when you resume operation.
To set a User Password:
1. Turn on your computer. Press F2, while the initial screen is displayed.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen opens.
2. Select Security, using the cursor directional keys.
3. Select Set User Password, and press the Enter key. The Set User Password window opens.
4. Choose your user password, which can be from one to eight
alphanumeric characters in any combination. Type it in the Enter New Password field.
5. Press the Enter key once to move to the Confirm New Password field. Retype the password you just entered to verify it.
6. Commit your password to memory, and press the Enter key.
7. Press F10 to exit.
8. Select Yes in the Setup Confirmation window.
Changing or Removing the User Password
To change the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type your current password.
2. In the Enter New Password field, type a new password; then retype it to verify.
To remove the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type your current password.
2. Leave the Enter New Password field blank, and then press the Enter key twice.
Note: Make sure the Password on boot is set to Enabled if you need the password protection at power on.
To set a Supervisor Password:
Only a system administrator will be able to perform this procedure.
1. Turn on your computer. Press F2, while the initial screen is displayed.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen opens.
2. Select Security using the cursor directional keys.
3. Select Set Supervisor Password, and press the Enter key. The Set Supervisor Password window opens.
4. Choose your supervisor password; it can be from one to eight
alphanumeric characters in any combination. Type it in the Enter New Password field.
5. Press the Enter key to move to the Confirm New Password field.
Retype the password you just entered to verify it.
6. Commit your password to memory, and press the Enter key.
Attention: You might want to note your password and keep it in a
safe place. If you forget your supervisor password,
Lenovo can not reset your password. You must take your
computer to a Lenovo reseller or a Lenovo marketing
representative to solve this problem. Proof of purchase is
required, and a fee will be charged for parts and service.
7. Press F10 to exit.
8. Select Yes in the Setup Confirmation window.
The next time you open the BIOS Setup Utility program, you will be prompted to type your password to proceed.
Changing or Removing the Supervisor Password
To change the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type the current supervisor
password.
2. In the Enter New Password field, type the new supervisor password; then retype it to verify.
To remove the password, do the following:
1. In the Enter Current Password field, type the current supervisor
password.
2. Leave the Enter New Password field blank, and then press the Enter key twice.
Hard Disk Passwords
Two types of the hard disk passwords help protect the information stored on the hard disk:
• Hard disk user password
• Hard disk master password, which requires a hard disk user password If User only is selected and a hard disk user password has been set, but no hard disk master password has been set, the user must enter the hard disk user password in order to gain access to files and applications on the hard disk.
If User + Master is selected you need to set a master password and a user password both as the Hard Disk Password. Either of the two passwords can be used to get access to the Hard disk. Any change or removal to the master password deletes the user password.
To set a hard disk password:
Print these instructions.
1. Turn on your computer. Press F2, while the initial screen is displayed.
The BIOS Setup Utility screen opens.
2. Select Security, using the cursor directional keys.
3. Select Built-in HDD1 Password Select, and press the Enter key. A window for selecting User Only or User + Master opens.
I will send the rest in the comment section..hope this helps in some way...the Fang.
