You should be able to press F8 on start up, so as you are able to start in safe mode, the option will come up and highlight the line 'Start windows in safe mode' and press enter. When windows starts the icons will be larger than normal, so don't worry, but their will show your own account and an administrartor account, click on the administrator account and go to accounts and select the account that is passworded. You should then either be able to delete the password, change, or delete the account, when done, restart pc and it should be ok and back to normal

Hi, Try opening the laptop and locate the cmos battery (it will look like a car alarm battery). Take it out for about 15 minutes. Take out the laptop battery as well. Plug it in back and turn back on, this should clear the password. If this does not work, try starting the laptop before putting back in the cmos battery and the laptop battery. Then shut down and put in back the cmos battery and the laptop battery. Start it up again and the password should be reset. I think you will have to press F1 at some point to save or load default settings. If this still doesn't work let me know so I can give another suggestion. Thanks, Lolita

Acer aspire 5536 forgotten the HDD user password

Assuming that after you enter the wrong three times it should generate a lockout error. At this time you can follow these steps to unlock the system:

Basically, once you unlock it, you should be able to boot into the BIOS and disable the HDD password. I'd say to do that first but you would need the password once you were in the BIOS to be able to disable it thus the recommendation to essentially set it to something you know first via the guide above.

I have locked myself out of my new Acer Aspire 5332 laptop because I put in the wrong password. I had not made a password recovery disc.....HELP !!


Sorry about this, but forgotten password is an issue, Whats your operating system? usually when you put a password on, there will be options where you can put a hint just in case you forget. in any case you're still unable to remember your password. The only possible way is to perform a clean install of your operating system...

Good luck!

Hope it helps!

Forgotten hdd/bios password

The only way to reset the BIOS password is to find the jumper pins on the motherboard and set them to the clear state and remove the CMOS battery. It resets the CMOS to the default state.
Your best bet is to contact tech support and explain the situation to them
