SOURCE: I have an acer travelmate

I ran into the same issue with a bios password The laptop is a newer Acer TravelMate and I was able to remove the password. Remove the hardrive first. Then remove the memory and unplug the black and red wires from the battery about 2 inches away wait a then plug it back in. With the harddrive out still I turned the computer back on and then back off, put the harddrive back in.

You will end up clearing the bios settings including the fingerprint readers settings.

LOL, why in the world would you buy an All-In-One desktop? One thing breaks and you lose your whole system until it's fixed. And they do break.

You don't restore your computer just because you lose a wireless connection. Most times all you have to do to get the connection back is cycle the router by turning it off and one again. You're going to lose connection lots of times in the future due to power failures, thunder storms, etc. Just cycle the router.

I'm not sure what password it could be asking for, but since you did not set one, try just hitting enter without keying a password.

How to Restore an HP System Without a Disc

The HP computer uses a Microsoft Windows operating system to allow multiple users on your system. When your computer isn't working properly, you can do a system restore to restore the computer back to an earlier version. When you restore your HP computer, you will get rid of any viruses or malware that are on your system. You won't have to get in touch with Microsoft or HP to perform this restore, and you don't need any kind of disc.Windows contains all of the restore applications you need for your HP computer.
Instructions
1 Turn the computer off and then turn it back on. Hold down the "F8" key when the computer starts to enter Windows Boot mode.
2 Key over to the "Safe Mode With Command Prompt" option with the arrow keys on your keyboard.
3 Log into your system as an administrator. Enter the administrator password into the field when prompted and then click on the "OK" button to log in.
4 Type "%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe" and press the "Enter" key to begin the computer's restore process.
5 Go through the system restore prompts to restore your HP computer.


Restoring an HP computer to factory settings requires that you do a system recovery. There are two types of recovery for HP computers: destructive and non-destructive .

I have problem to open my system restor 2 also Ihave problm to open and get back to my own users accounts the widows only open to my limited account


That's a big problem you got there

What version of windows are you using? if you're using windows xp, after booting the windows screen don't click any accounts just hold ctrl alt delete button. And after that you'll prompt to put a username and password. In the username type administrator and no password and click enter

once you enter, go to the control panel and change your settings on your user accounts.

About your system restore. I think it's disabled by a user that's why it doesn't function. Right click the My computer and go to properties ang go to the system restore tab and enable the system restore for your partition e.g. local c: or others

I have forgot my router password, and can not add a wireless item


If you have forgotten your router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Try this also:- u can recover it by simply connecting one of ur computer with the help of cable to router port 1, then open the browser and enter 192.168.1.1 in address bar .username ....... (blank)
password : admin
go to wireless ...then goto wireless security ... and there is ur security WPA key ...password.. make a not of it and try to connect it...
it would work without changing any personal settings...
Best luck try it out ..
