    My system is an Acer M6, and I have had the prob for some time. It affects the CD/DVD drive and the floppy, but the USB ports are OK. Elsewhere, someone suggested removing all the Acer Empowering Technology software, but I can't seem to find any files on the system, other than PDFs and system status panels. It has also been suggested that the e lock facility, whilst not available to the user, has been lurking on the system since day 1 and has suddenly become activated. However, since the user access does not exist, you can't get into it to de-activate it. Grrrr!

Fastest way slick and reinstall. That's why I never in 25 years of computer support never enabled passwords that deep. Some system have a hardware reset buried inside but it takes a tech to get to it. Some time removing the CMOS battery will do it. It would be easier to hack the OS and get into the Admin password than a hardware passwork.

Hi.I have acer 5633 wlmi laptop. I had a lot of stuff stored in Acer PSD (personal secure disk) and it (windows vista) suddenly crashed. Now I have installed windows 7 and Acer e data security management...


All your stuff is stored on your D drive with hidden folder name HI TRUST DRIVE and in a file eDS_PSD_drive.vmdf. The HiTrustDrive holds Acers back-up data of your system, you should have made recovery discs from this when you first had the laptop. When making these discs you are asked to define a password, you will need the password to view the files, if you have forgotten it just boot to a linux live cd and you can view the password, it is stored in plain text on a hidden partition in the following file: /TOOLS/AIMDRS.DAT.

Just give it a try...
