Question about Acer Aspire T120 PC Desktop
I have an Acer Aspire 5610, and am trying to restore the factory default image from the hidden partition, When Acer recovery console loads, I type the default password [six zero's] but it is not recognised. I have not changed the password since I bought the laptop, so this is worrying. can anyone help please?
Download the Ultimate Boot CD from http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html and burn a bootable CD-ROM. Boot the computer with the CD. There is a password recovery function under File System tools, I believe. Run the application. It is a Linux application and will look strange. It will eventually stop and it will ask for the location of Windows installation. It will have been found already, so press enter. The next prompt is also determined, so press enter again. The third prompt is the one that you need. Read the text and it will describe how to clear the admin password. I believe you enter an *. You will then see a prmpt to write the changes. Yes to that and then exit and restart.
It has been a while since I have used this, so I apologize for the scetchy details. I have used it successfully several times. Good luck and let me know how it works out.

Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc, pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.
