SOURCE: factory settings
There's a couple of things you can do:
Press the F2 key to enter the BOIS setup and reset those defaults
Use the driver disc. It writes a complete image on the hard drive with all the drivers.

you can try using windows system restore : Which restores your machine to an earlier date.
Start : Programs : Accesories : System tools : System restore.

well if its the boot password you have hope,ALT+F10 on start is supposed to get you to the recovery manager,if you cant get there restore factory default,if its the windows operating system password,you can try to type administrator in the user name and leave the password blank,sometimes your able to get in on the built in administrator acct.,if that doesnt work,,its not easy you can download password recovery programs and try that,if its the boot lock password you can take it apart and remove the bios battery on the mother board,remove main battery ,unplug power set something on the power button heavy enough to hold it down and wait,the longer the better,one day ,maybe two,reassemble and it should be back to factory default, if its under warranty send it to acer,nowif your able to get past the boot password and the windows password is still holding you up you can one-time boot to a windows disc and reinstall new copy,warning! you will loose everything on the computer,but at least you can use it agian hope this helps,aloha from maui todd0708

If you want to reformat to factory condition, then press Ctrl + F11 at start-up when the blue bar comes up with "Dell.com" on it. If you miss it then just let it start up, then restart and try again. If it still does not work, press F12 at startup and select recovery option. Please note, if you have deleted the Dell Recovery Partition this will not work for you. You will need to reformat by inserting your Operating System CD at Startup and booting from that (F12).

Restart your system. As soon as the computer reboots and when you see the blue line on top of the screen with a label www.dell.com that the time that you have to hit ctrl+F11. Once Dell PC Restore appears click on the restore button.
Best of Luck
