Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook

1 Answer

Can not log on

My Acer is new and I was having trouble getting around. I'm not sure what I did, but I had a choose of what I wanted to do ie shut down, log off, etc. I chose to log off, unfortunately I can not log back on. I never made a password.(I thought I was logging out of current program-AOL) I am running Vista. Is there a way to get into my computer? I tried the new password option, however I am getting a mesage telling me to use a password disk or flashdrive memory something or other. I dont have either. I do not want to buy a password program because I heard they don't work. what are my options?

    thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I will pass this advise over to my IT guy:) I am definately going to make sure I have a password recovery disk and my boyfriend has made sure to do this for himself just in case he ever comes across this problem. I'll also get back to you with our results.

If you never entered a password it won't ask you for one when you log in. If you have forgotten the password of your user you can create a livecd from the following iso. Use the newly created disk to boot your machine you might have to set you bios to boot from the cd/dvd drive first or hit F8 to enter boot list menu watch your screen at startup to see what keys get you into the bios F2 and the boot menu. Then boot from the disc and crack your password. You will need another computer with a cd/dvd burner and a burner program. I recommend ImgBurn. Good Luck
PS I recommend making a password recovery disk once you get back in.

    Please rate the solution I provided. Thanks. Unfortunately Microsoft has made it difficult to fix this issue with re-installing Vista or cracking your lost password.

Hello
When you do the setup using the windows disc,choose the delete partition option.

If this is not a choice then choose the create partition option.Then format using the quick option.Once done run setup again choosing c: drive

Also make sure the windows disc is clean no smudges or deep scratches,a little windex and a paper towell will do.

Last,be sure the cooling fans are clean and running,the setup program uses alot of power and can create heat.So i want to make sure your not shuting down on high heat.A can of air or a vacum will do.

Hi, If you want to share files on both computers, you need to check the shared folders option on both version of the operating system. You can right-click on the folder you want to share then choose properties and choose shared option to check both settings. On windows 7, you have to go to Network and Sharing Center to check the setting on your option. you have to to turn on the sharing options and also if there is a password on both computer when you log on , that would be the username and password you need to share the documents.

The log in screen is locked and i forgot my password


Hi,

If you have forgot the login password, I would suggest a full system recovery. Inorder to do so, turn Off the computer. Now, when you turn ON the computer make sure you press the Alt key and tap on F10 key ie ALT+F10. It will go to the factory recovery screen. Choose full system restore or recovery and follow onscreen instruction.

Thanks and regards,

Installing RHEL 5 on ACER ASPIRE 4530


1) Get SATA drivers for Windows (whatever flavour you use)
For you who want to get driver AHCI for Acer 4530, the driver can be download here:

2) Control Panel, Add New Hardware.
3) Yes, already connected, browse to the bottom, hit “add a new device”
4) No, point it to the directory of your SATA drivers
5) Choose your driver from the list that returns. (Mine was the nVidia SATA controller)
6) Uninstall other standard IDE controllers (Not Primary nor Secondary)
7) Reboot and enter your BIOS
8) Change to AHCI mode
9) Boot to Windows… , if you success you will not meet the Blue Screen and Windows will install and find the driver automatically.
10) Windows wants to reboot. Do that.
11) Go to Device Manager and then uninstall the AHCI controller that you installed (there will be two or more now, but must Uninstall the one with the exclamation mark)
12) Success!

Microsoft Internet Explorer


Well I'd consider this kind of a browser hijack.

You can download it here:

Hijackthis

I'm not sure how the new version is but the concept should be the same. Look for the www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx

entry and then have the program remove it.

You usually have to restart the browser and / or the computer for the settings to take effect.

Let me know if you have any trouble.

Best of luck!

Hi, my screensaver acer aspire one doesn't work. can you help ?


To set up your screensaver, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Choose the Screen Saver tab. In the drop down menu for Screen saver, make sure something is selected instead of (None). Next click the Preview and it will give you a glimpse of what the screensaver you chose will look like. Move the mouse to get out of it and select apply if you like that one or choose a different one.

Password forgotten


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.
