If there has not been an administrator password placed on the computer, you can put administrator in the user name box, then hit enter. XP has an administrator account, but no password set. A BIG hole anyone can use. I recommend that you password the admin account to prevent hacking.
If you are talking about a specific password for the motherboard, you will have to contact that manufacturer, or Acer.
Well you will have to go to your computer settings... im thinking there is another program that can be used to reformat your drive... the problem with that is you need admin priv to change setting like reformatting your disk.. seems as if you are looking for more space or updating to a new system hrdware... you can go to your drive and right click to reformat that particular disk.. compressing it or expanding it.. google reformat harddrive and several programs will pop up that will make this process much easier...
you can try to log on as the administrator and see if you can change your password back. Unless you have changed the admin password you should still be able to log in as either 'admin' with no password, 'administrator' with no password or either one with the password 'admin'. Some computers use admin others use administrator. I hope it works out for you! Good luck.
Login under your user account.
Go to -Control Panel - User Accounts and select your User Account
"Set Password" option is there.
If you have multiple users and you have administrator priveledges you can set the passwords for all users as well.
Setting up passwords is not foolproof but will keep most inexperienced prying eyes out of your computer.
Are you logged into windows or just the bios settings? Are you running XP or Vista? If you are in XP and you logged in by another user name and don't have and files under the Admin account I wouldn't worry about it as long as you have Admin priv on the user name you are logged in under.
