When you get the 'acer' screen at startup Hold down ALT and keep pressing F10. You need to be quick, it took several attempts for me.

This takes it back to factory settings, but if you have anything stored on a second hard drive it should remain untouched (back it up to be safe).

Hello, I just bought a HP Pavilion P6000 series. It was a display model. After getting home I noticed I cant log into the main hard drive with admin rights with out a password. The store set a passcode...


Hi, I would contact the store and ask them what they set their password to. Without a restore or windows disk you won't be able to reset it to factory condition or reformat and reinstall windows. They should be able to give you the password and from there you can get in and change the password etc.
Thank you,
Lee

How do i reboot my laptop when i cant get on because i forgot my password


I think you are getting confused with reboot and re installing windows.
Rebooting is just turning your PC off and on again.
You may be able to do a system recovery from either the F8 boot menu, or you may have a dedicated key to press depending on the make of the PC.
You should be able to reset your windows password if you follow this guide http://www.fixya.com/support/r5393255-windows_password_recovery

How can I reset my emachine w3653 to factory setting? Unfortunately, I forgot my password. help


Hi! Normally the emachine came with an eRecovery Disk that you can use to restore the PC back to factory settings. To do that follow this steps:
  1. Press F2 to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the eMachines logo is being displayed).
  2. Using the keyboard arrow keys, arrow over to Boot.
  3. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to CDROM.
  4. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the System CD.
  5. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  6. Press "F10", then press "Enter" to save the changes and reboot the system.
  7. The computer will boot from the eMachines Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
