Hi there
there should not be a password on the machine if its brand new, the reason for this is that you set your own user accounts and passwords.
I suggest your Friend takes the laptop back and have them sort it out as the warranty will cover it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

My daughter lost her password for her netbook how do I rest it


Hello first of all what operating system is she using if windows xp then boot the machine in safe mode, chances are it came out the factory with no password on the hidden admin, after you boot into safe mode you will notice a new account you haven't not seen before call administrator. choose the admin and once in the account simply go to user accounts and remove her password. if you are running vista or windows 7 then this will not work for you the next option would require software I recommend hirens boot cd 10.6 here is the link bootcd download and extract the file, you need a archive program like winzip or winrar. the zip file wil contain an iso image of the disk that you will need to mount and burn to a disk would use damon tools which is also free. once you have created your boot disk you can now boot your daughters computer from the boot cd, once booted into hirens several tools with appear simply navigate to password tools and follow the step by step wizard that will remove the password in seconds.
hpe this helps please feel free to reply for more detailed support.

Brand new acer aspire won't load windows xp


If you can still get into the BIOS, see if you have an option for D2D recovery. if so, make sure it is enabled.

restart the system and hold down Alt+f10. if your recovery partition is still intact, this should start a factory reload of your system.

I have an acer aspire one and it will not load windows. Not in safe mode or any other mode. The windows xp screen will show, then a quick blue screen with writing (flashes too fast to read what is on it)...


Was your BIOS changed recently? You may need to get in there and choose "Load Optimal Settings". Your processor may be overdoing it.
If that wasn't it, take your Windows disc and put it in the drive. Press "r" to run a system recovery.
Then press "c" for the recovery console.
then run a "chkdsk" after appropriate password has been entered.
This may fix your issue. If not post a comment and I'll help you some more.

Forgot pasword


If you are talking about Windows log on password, go to this site http://ophcrack.sourceforge.net/download.php?type=livecd and download the iso image file (pick either XP or Vista accordingly), burn it to a CD. Make sure in the BIOS, set the starting device priority with CD/DVD first. Start your computer with the CD in the drive, follow the on screen instruction, and you should get all the password back.
