Ask your daughter. She set that password, and she needs to enter the password.

Otherwise, find the original sales-receipt, to prove that you (and not a thief) has possession of the laptop, and telephone ACER, and ask for help in bypassing the password.

Harddisk Security


Truthfully the only solution I have seen for this is to contact the manufacturer. They will need to verify ownership to proceed. You can attempt to short the pins on the motherboard, but that is not as easy as it sounds and will require some research and disassembly of your machine, which i dont advise.

Good Luck!

Harddisk security password problem


It sounds to me that someone has passworded the hard drive. If you do not know the password, there is no way to access the hard drive. The two options in this case are get the password from whoever put it on or uy a new harddrive. People usually password their harddrive in case it is stolen or lost, then nobody can read thei data or use their computer.
