Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

Password forgotten My nephew's girlfriend has an Acer Aspire 5315 laptop. She did not have it long when the screen got broken. She has now gotten the screen replaced but she cannot log on to her laptop because she has now forgotten the password. Can anyone tell us how to get around the password?

    Thank you for your help. I however already fixed it. Acer website has a "support solutions". She did not have anything important on the laptop so I was able to, at start up, hold down the "alt" key while repeatedly tap on the F10 key. This brought me back to an erecovery sections and from there I just did a recovery back to default settings and I was able to use a new password. Thought i would post this incase it may help someone else. Thank you for all of your help.

Unfortunately, there are only 2 ways around this. Reinstallation of te OS will wipe out everything but allow a new account to be created. If this is the case, create 2 accounts both with admin priveleges for future scenarios. Restore her important files from her backups ( she did backup on a regular basis, didn't she?).
If there are no backups and she doesn't want to lose what's on there, Google "password recovery software" and choose from the multitude of hits that are returned. I can't recommend any of them as I have never had to use them before.
Thanks for using Fixya.com. Keep us in mind for future needs and please rate this tip accordingly.

Forgotten password


Insert OS cd in drive and start reinstalling by selecting repair mode now once all files are loaded system will reboot when you see the Installing Devices progress bar, press SHIFT + F10
this will give you access to your account also you can reset all passwords
Now restart lappy and let the system boot normally without OS cd in drive
now you will come to old screen and previously configured desktop with all intact aplication and icons on desktop and it will no more ask you for password till you set a new one

Thanks and regards
