At boot hit f8 boot in safe mode and then go to control to user accounts.If you cant change your user password make a new user or use Hiren's BootCD to unlock any user passwords on that system.

Apparently someone gained access to your Macbook and enabled the password login feature of the operating system.
The login window that is displayed has a button for "Forgot Password". Click this button to see whether the person that set the password lock provided a cute hint for the password.

If they did not provide a hint, I would question anyone that has recently had the opportunity to access your Macbook to see whether they set the password lock. They would have the password.

Bios setup


macs have single user mode where you run commands to enter it

Press Command-S as the computer starts up.

The computer screen is black with standard white text. You can now run the UNIX commands that you want.

If you are locked out you need a startup dvd to reset your passwords.

Black screen ask for password


Black screen with "Enter Password" in blue box. - BIOS password.
To reset: take the CMOS battery out then place it back again.

Black screen with Enter password in the upper right left corner - could be hard disc password.,
If you set up the password before, you can only bypass that by entering the correct password. If not, it will render the hard disc useless.

Ask your daughter. She set that password, and she needs to enter the password.

Otherwise, find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you (and not a thief) has possession of the laptop, and telephone ACER, and ask for help in bypassing the password.

Black screen with password= in white writing


you have a bios or startup password ( assuming startup password ) so if you go into the bios of the laptops / computers and disable the startup and passwords ( except the bios password ) it should be fine.

Windows not Starting Correctly


Hit F12 on startup and then put your Dell system disk in so it will boot from the CD.
When you get the startup, you will be prompted to see if you want to repair with the recovery console. Hit R and wait until it asks for the installation you want to repair. The option #1 should be windows, so hit #1. When it asks for the password, hit Enter (I hope you don't have an admin password, 'cause that's what it is looking for. If you hit enter and you get a c:\windows> prompt, type in the following:
chkdsk /r
After the scan runs, Windows should start. If not, let me know and we can do other stuff.

Key board not working


It's a hardware issue,
Maybe RAM or hard drive..

Did you get it used? If so the password was set b4 you purchase it, and will not show up when you type,,,It stays hidden.

Your getting this screen because there is a hardware failure. Fix the problem and you wont need the BIOS password.

Press<esc> to enable startup message, This should give you more info on the problem.
